In addition to the work in the show, which has a 1940s-era storefront window, I installed a my work translated into to rugs, plates along with wallpaper that had been blasted with a paintball gun. I had the idea to shoot my prints with a paintball gun and the gallery was crazy enough to go along with it. They built a special booth in the space covered in plastic, which I thought was overkill art first, until later in the night when I was cleaning paint splatters off my work 10 feet away. So first, you pick out the color paper you like, then choose your paint color (we had just two; fluorescent orange and bright yellow) and then take your five shots for $20. The money went to the local SPCA, so we were doing a bit of good and raised some cash for charity. It was Mardi Gras and the street in front was closed for a parade, which seemed to consist of a fires truck, some beer trucks and a few undecorated cars. We anticipated crowds of fun loving folks pouring in afterward but it turns out most people went straight into the bars. We had a decent-sized crowd of interested and fun participants though and there was a live feed with a group that almost went in the double-digits. After a brief “artist’s talk”, I put on a bright yellow jacket from Joe Fresh, that John Yogodzinski had screened printed with the vase. Casey Gleghorn shot me in the back. So, I think a good time was had by all. Next week, the Casey’s gallery gang and some of my work will be in Manhattan for the Scope art fair (March 6-9) so, stop by if you’re in town and tell them I sent you.
