A Very PHANTOM Christmas

 Last night's inaugural opening at PHANTOM HAND was a massive success. One-hundred and twenty pieces of artwork left the gallery, and hundreds of friends and Philadelphia arts patrons packed the gallery from 6 to 2AM. Because this was a cash and carry show and the art was so affordable, the work was flying off the walls so quickly the gallery staff practically had to run to fill the holes. Out to Dry 3 (The portion that is left) will continue to be on the walls at PHANTOM HAND until the third week of January. Sadly, if you did not make it out to the opening, and earlier on in the night, you missed out on the show in it's full splendor and pomp, before being carried away piece by piece by art-fiends twisted on Narraganset and pumpkin loaf.

Special thanks to everybody who came out to support the gallery, all the participating artists, the organizers James Heimer, Sam Heimer, Anthony Pedro, Alex Eckman-Lawn, Matt Weikel, and Jeff Daniels, Amanda Cameron and Arts on South, Jeffro Kilpatrick for his art and wisdom, Chris Heimer for the holiday baked goods, Matt Cavanaugh for the pizza and 'Sam Masks', and Narraganset Beer for keeping the part going into the morning with their donation.

You can see all of the photos from Out To Dry 3 HERE.

PHANTOM HAND will be closed until the first Wednesday of the New Year, and from then on will be keeping regular hours of Wednesday/Thursday 2PM-8PM, Friday/Saturday/Sunday 2PM-10PM. The next exhibition we will be hosting is Artificial Dissemination 2; Propaganda to Popaganda, late January. Stop in often as new work will be arriving regularly.

Happy Holidays.
