Friends of the Phantom,
Hope you're all well. A bit late, but thank you all too much, the artists, patrons, organizers, beer-swilling myth-mongers, and Anthony Pedro (curator) for making Mythology and the Forgotten Gods a runaway success. The participating artists brought their A game, and the opening was packed from start to finish. If you missed out on this exhibition, come rub elbows with the art and artists one last night at the closing reception, Saturday, April 21st, 6PM-10PM. Below, a few samples of work from the show, and after the purty pictures, some vague suggestions as to programming for the coming four months at Phantom Hand.

After a few weeks of brain-storming, tossing around some ideas around, and making a few calls, we've penned the schedule for the remaining four months of Phantom Hand's existence, and not to toot our own phantom horn, but it's a pretty impressive line-up.

4/27 - Spring Cleaning opening reception
5/5 - MooNoo Solo opening reception
5/19 - Spring Cleaning / MooNoo closing reception
5/25 - Lady-Like; An All Female Art Exhibition opening reception

7/21 - Greetings From... / Nevada Hill closing reception
7/27 - Top Secret The Phantom's going out with a Bang Last Event at Phantom Hand; This is going to be a big to-do. Two bands already booked and an extensive, mind-blowing artist invite list is being culled from galleries all over Philadelphia.

Along with the above, we will be hosting an event in support of Christian Patchell's book I Put the Can in Cancer, a few more figure-drawing nights hosted by Paul Palcko (see photo below), Pictionary and Drink and Draws on the weekends over the summer, and possibly; a city-spanning Art-Crawl.

More soon folks. Hope to see you on the 21st.
