Hope you're as excited about the forthcoming schedule (see here) as we are. So here's some more details on what's happening at the Phantom in the next few weeks.
April 21st, Saturday 6:00PM-10:00 PM - Closing reception for Mythology & the Forgotten Gods
April 27th, Friday 6:00PM-10:00 PM - Opening reception SPRING CLEANING
The odds and ends, bastard children and misfits, christmas-tree stands and rusted yard tools of Heather Gargon, Julie Laquer, Julianna Lose, Christine Larsen, Greg Pizzoli, JP Flexner, Tim Durning, Alex Eckman-Lawn, James Heimer, Matt Weikel, Anthony Pedro, Eamon Dougherty, Sam Heimer, and other Phantom Hand artists.
We're cleaning out our closets and flat-files before Phantom Hand kicks off an amazing show schedule for the summer. Help us make room for some new artwork and check out original inked pages, limited edition prints, and paintings; new and slightly used.
May 5th, Saturday 6:00PM-10:00 PM - Opening reception Plastopia; Visual Works by MooNoo
More info on this coming.
May 25th, Friday 6:00PM-10:00 PM - Opening reception Lady Like
Curated by Stephanie Struse.

Make no mistake; the plight of the female artist has certainly been a trying one over the course of history. Indeed, it has taken many, many years for male and female artists to coexist- at least from the standpoint of the mainstream, westernized canon. All grievances aside, it is with happy hearts that we can say today, these biases between the sexes seem to be dissipating significantly, if not altogether. Ladylike: An All-Female Exhibition is not a show of exclusionary connotations; rather it is one that simply celebrates lady artists in the here and now, and what their contributions ultimately mean for the future of the arts.

Also, we're having another drink and draw with a live model. We've been getting asked left and right when the next one would be, and this time around it'll likely be on a Sunday afternoon early in May. Ample notice will be given.

That's all for now folks. Hope to see you this Saturday night at the closing.
