Cheap Art Show hours

Six of my thirteen drawings in the Cheap Art Show sold at the opening; you can still see the rest (and get cheap art by me and others):

  • Friday 31 May, 4 to 7 pm
  • Saturday 8 June, 12 to 4 pm
  • Friday 14 June, 4 to 7 pm
  • Saturday 15 June, 2 to 6 pm

The show is at Paper City Performance Space, 460 Race St., Holyoke, MA. Here’s a photo of the building taken by fellow exhibitor Jim DuBois (you may find the photo slightly eerie on account of the mysterious hooded figure near the building; I find it eerie because I was the mysterious hooded figure and didn’t realize I was being photographed!).

Patterns of Play exhibition

PLAY, this Spring’s Trees & Hills anthology, is appearing in a group art exhibition called “Patterns of Play” at Greylock Arts in Adams, MA on Saturdays from September 17 through October 30.

I trekked out to far western Massachusetts for the opening, and though I thought for a while that Google Maps had sent me on a wild goose chase into the forest, I arrived as promised and had a good time. The show is full of fun stuff, and the opening featured a robot puppet performance. I finally got to meet Marianne Petit, who besides co-running Greylock Arts also contributed to the T&H Swingin’ Hits anthology (now collected in First Harvest). Either she or Greylock Arts co-honcho Matthew Belanger took this photo – behind me you can see a blender which appears to have a small person trapped inside. I was also pleased to see cartoonist Howard Cruse, who is himself co-curating an exhibit of underground comics in neighboring North Adams a month from now.

Anyway, if you’re looking for something to do tomorrow (or some Saturday in October), you might head out to Adams to have a gander at this show while it lasts!
