Leaving Now, Books Later

Come out this coming weekend to Phantom Hand's summer doldrums show, and see how our artists grapple with a completely open-ended show, art based simply on the title of the exhibition. Featuring work by: Rog Petersen, Juliana Lose, Eli Vandenberg, Carol Piast, Daniel Trauten, Harrison Freeman, Jenny Ross, Christine Larsen, Christian Patchell, Melissa Lomax, Concetta Barbera, James Heimer, Elliott Downs, Jeff Desantis, Jeff Daniels, Anthony Pedro, Brad Kingett, Eamon Dougherty, Alex Eckman-Lawn, Sam Heimer, and more! We've got some new hands in the mix, as well as some old favorites that've been missing in action. Event Page HERE.

On September 6th, come help us lay summer to rest in all its sweaty glory with the opening reception of 'Required Reading' at the new kid in town, the Art Dept. Phantom Artists are cracking books and illustrating favorite passages, scenes, characters, and redesigning book covers. Toss sponsorship by PBC and 215Local food truck into the mix and it's going to be a night of book-worm-badassery. Artist lineup: Roger Petersen, Christine Larsen, Elliott Downs, Concetta Barbera, Julie Laquer, Alicia Neal, Caitlyn McCormack, Ed Kelley, Tim Durning, Carol Piast, Jay Bevenour, James Heimer, Robb Leef, Jeffro Kilpatrick, Anthony Pedro, Jenny Ross, Eamon Dougherty, Alex Eckman-Lawn, and Sham Heimer.
