INFERNO, burning the bridges behind us
222 pages of fascinating insights by artists and musicians from the pages of the infamous Inferno Newspaper.
From 2000 til 2007 I published an underground arts newspaper in South Jersey, It covered the arts scene in New Jersey and Philadelphia, and other points on the map.
With a slate of a dozen contributors, we enjoyed a good run. The then economy tanked. Not one to stop capitalizing on a good thing, I pulled the best articles from every issue and compiles them into one journal.
The full color edition sells for a premium at $40.98, still a steal in this day and age! Available from Barnes and Noble or Amazon. If the price is too high you cheap bastard, you can get the economy edition for $14.98, also at Barnes and Noble or Amazon. The economy edition contains all of the wit and wisdom of the premium edition, only in black and white.
In addition to the original articles, every writer also contributed forwards and never before published articles for this unique book. this is a must have for your bathroom library, and in case of emergency, the pages can be used in the place of toilet paper.
Mosaic Murals – tackling large scale installations
I co-authored this instructional booklet along with artist Liz Nicklus. It is available on Amazon for an amazing low price of $16.00. If you don’t like feeding the Amazon juggernaut, it is also available on Barnes and Noble.
If you order today, you can have it by Christmas. A perfect gift for that difficult to buy for mosaic artist in your life.
The book is thin, but chock full of images and step by step instructions on creating large scale mosaics installations. Liz and I write this book when we discovered that there were no books available on this subject. Liz studied under Philadelphia legend Isaiah Zagar.
Together we have several public art installations in New Jersey. This book is based on our personal experiences.
The Souls of Forgotten Objects
Juried exhibition, Sedona Arts Center, 15 Art Barn Road
Sedona, Arizona 86336
The exhibit will run from December 1, 2021 to December 23, 2021.
I am excited to have been accepted into a juried exhibition, The Souls of Forgotten Objects, at the Sedona Arts Center. I have weathered a drought the last couple years, and am now exhibiting throughout the state at various venues.
I will be exhibiting three of my Desert Detritus Clocks – all found object assemblages crafted from debris and detritus collected in the Superstition wilderness. Cholla roots, rusted cans and metal and automotive parts, bones – all will find a way onto my constructions. With form not exactly meeting function, these pieces are all working clocks.
Don’t worry, the rusted metal parts have all been treated with a fixative, you have no fear of tetanus.
Hey, if you are looking for a unique Christmas gift, why not give someone you love the time of day? Check out the exhibit, it promises to be a show of truly creative people.
Last weekend we attended the Mining Festival and burro races in Superior, AZ.
Superior is a town that has had its ups and downs. Many times a ghost town, Superior is rising again.
The day’s events included a parade, live music, a beer garden, food tents and more.
We arrived early to get some photos before the crowds arrived. We visited our favorite gallery, ate some fresh handmade donuts, listened to the music and had lunch at the Silver King. Continue reading “Feeling Superior”
This past Friday, my good friend Dave and I took a trek through the Sierra Ancha wilderness. Arizona state highway 288 begins near Roosevelt, at SR 188, and ends in the town of Young just over 40 miles away. The highway is mostly unpaved, and the scenery is breathtaking.
