Neel found her own path through modern art and was oblivious to the trends that swept though the art world during her lifetime. In this way, she reminds me of a number of artists from Colorado history, such as Mary Chenoweth, Roland Detre and Edward Marecak. Unfortunately, these artists never found themselves in the right place at the right time. Maybe someday, their accomplishments will be rediscovered the way Vanderlip found Neel all those years ago.
