Endless Summer

As a photographer I just love Karine Laval's Swimming Pool series. The lighting is exquisite.

Also represented at the M+B Gallery is the work of Massimo Vitali
Already, I can feel the warmth.


Fun in Philly

Looking for some fun in Philly this weekend. Start off your weekend by going to Space 1026.Space 1026 will be holding its annual art auction on FRIDAY December 15th concurrently with the opening of the "Flipbook Festival" - a touring show of flipbooks from around the world. The doors will open at 6:30pm at which time participants can bid on work laid out around the gallery in a silent auction and get a sneak peak at the work which will be sold in the more competitive vocal auction, which begins at 9:00pm.

This year the auction is being coordinated by the awesome local curator/artist Damian Weinkrantz.

Todd Kimmel is back this year as auctioneer.

The auction, which helps insure that the collectively run gallery/studio space will exist another year, will feature donated artwork from members and a wide range of friends. Past donations have come from art-stars such as: Barry McGee, Shepard Fairey, Steve "ESPO" Powers, Paper Rad, Brian Chippendale, Clare Rojas, Judith Schaector, and many others. You will also find many locals donating goods and services such as free video rentals, massages, websites, recording studio time, and much more.

Continue your weekend festivities and get some one of a kind gifts at the PUNK ROCK FLEA- MARKET-HOLIDAY EXPO
