The Occasional Market is set to open this Friday.  The gallery is very organized for now, but the show will change as I arrive for occasional performances and other activities.  Forty-eight pieces are now on view, including three 4′ x 5′ collage paintings, several pencil drawings, some smaller collage pieces, a wooden cart, three puppets, and small sculptures in metal ceramic and assemblage.

Small Sculptural Items for The Occasional Market

Small Sculptural Items for The Occasional Market

The Occasional Market, my new show of paintings, objects and actions opens on Friday, April 25th at 707 Gallery Pittsburgh.  The show blends the gallery experience with ideas about shopping.  Years ago, my grandfather ran a small neighborhood grocery store in the East End of Pittsburgh.  I grew up listening to stories about his shop.  This sparked my interest in independent neighborhood shops as important as centers of public interaction.  The show references some old-time stories, but I also address issues of consumer society today.   I will make occasional appearances for performances, actions and alterations to the space.  If you stop by, I may play shopkeeper and try to sell you something.
