60 years of hand-painted Christmas cards

Play

Artist James Mullen has produced a large body of work, and has been an educator for many years at SUNY-Oneonta. In those years he has also created a Christmas card almost every year, and collected cards from other important artists — some are whimsical, some are abstract, some are mystical, some are unabashedly sentimental. Mullen talks about this and his other work, and a coincidental meeting that took him to Oneonta.
