Leon Arguello & Polly Wood
Leon Arguello, Recent Charcoal Drawings on Brown Paper
Leon Arguello was born in Denver and grew up in the desert southwest town of Trinidad, Colorado. Encouraged by his mother, he began to draw at a very young age. Continuing to study art through all his years of public school, he graduated high school in 1991 and shifted his focus from art to music. In 2019 he began to revisit visual art and has been inspired by friends and family who have also found themselves making art in the Ithaca area. Leon resides with his family in Danby, NY and enjoys music, art and exploring the outdoors.
