Months after the River Gallery opened, Mary Portera toured an art gallery inside a historical home in Santa Fe, New Mexico. That gallery showcased beautiful art on the inside and opened up into a sculpture garden in the backyard.
Portera told her husband she wanted one.
"Where is my garden? I really, truly was giving him a hard time," she recalled last week while standing in her sculpture garden next to her husband, retired physician Charles Portera.
