Urban Eats shows


My first event at Urban Eats is this Sunday, April 25, 11:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.  There will be food and drink for sale in the cafe side, and art for looking at in the Urban Arts Collective side (enter through the cafe.)  My show this month is "Sign language", photographs I've been taking of signs over the last few years.  (And while you're there check out work from Angie Griffith, UMSL's PPRC Project, Thomas Shepherd, and Naomi Silver.)

A week after this event the sign show comes down and up goes the May show, "Right this instant", which will be a collection of images I've made with Polaroid film.  The Polaroids will be up all throughout the month of May at Urban Eats, with the meet-the-artist event on Sunday, May 23, 11:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. 

And in June I will put up my final show at Urban Eats — the theme is still being ironed out, but it will more than likely include at least a few photos of Globe Drugs, on my beloved Cherokee Street.

So the photo above really fits with all three shows ... I knows what I loves, and I loves that sign.

Hope to see you at Urban Eats!

"Sign Language" show at Urban Eats

I hung up my first show at Urban Eats this past weekend.  I've got a lot of new work in it.  There are matted photos and postcards for sale, in addition to the framed pieces* that are hanging.  I'm very excited about this show and the other artists' work as well.  (Download a flyer here for information on the other artists.)

The show will be hanging throughout April, after which we will rotate in our next shows for May.**

I am having a come-see-me event on Sunday, April 25, from 11:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.  Urban Eats will have tasty food and drinks for sale.  So come have br/lunch and say hello!

Oh, to whet your appetite for the show, click on the video below to see a little preview video made by one of the participating artists, Naomi Silver of Culture Surfer.

And one more thing ... I had postcards made for the show and I would love to send you one.  Just message me your address and I'll pop it in the mail to you.***  With a check for $15,000.****

*Did I mention that usually framed 8"x10" photos are $125 but for this show they are available for the low low price of $80?  I didn't?  Well, I did now!
**Mine will be Polaroid photographs and images made with Polaroid film.
***Free, no-obligation, nobody will visit your home, even if you are unable to come to the show you may keep the postcard as my free gift to you.  So you out-of-town folk, request away.  I want to use these!  While supplies last.
****Checks will not be honored.
