People Post!! from Art for the Cash Poor

We brought our wares to the fair on Saturday and tended our table for hours. Along came many familiar faces, many new faces we hadn’t met but had written about. It was great to see everybody — and we even sold a piece or two!! Here’s our pictures from the event. More on Roberta’s flickr and on Libby’s flickr.

Andrew Jeffrey Wright

Space 1026 founder, AJW, was selling his work and his girlfriend, Crystal Kovak’s work. Here he’s holding one of Crystal’s drawings and wearing a shirt with one of his images on it. He said he never counts the money til the end of the day….it makes it kind of like Christmas he said.

Kripal, Temple faculty and co-founder with Richard Hricko of the Crane Arts Building, said they were very happy with their new outside landscaping/finishing project in the back patio space. They can use the space for events like this, and for parties and other summertime soirees (a possible revenue generator for the Crane). Also, stay tuned for news about the Stable, the Crane’s little out-building, which will become the home soon for a high-end architectural restoration company now based in Chadds Ford. The company will actually be restoring the building! Cool.

Kaufman, President of Philadelphia Sculptors, is gearing up for PS’s 2008 big exhibit on the theme of Global Warming, which will be held in the Crane’s Icebox. Right now, PS has a call out for work for a November, 2007, show “Tip of the Iceberg” billed as a “warm-up” for the Global Warming show. Iceberg will be at the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education. Interested in being in Iceberg or Global Warming? email Leslie for the information at lesliekaufman@verizon.net

Gina Triplett and Matthew Curtius
Gina Triplett and Matthew Curtius, husband and wife collaborating artists.

We’ve seen their work and written about it but never met them. Since they collaborate on painting they were interested in how we collaborate on our paintings.

Coutroubis of Center for Emerging and Visual Artists (CFEVA) also stopped by for a chat. Look for Flicker: A Group Exhibtion at Tower Gallery starting May 31, featuring work from CFEVA members Joelle Jensen, Mark Khaisman, Matt Neff, Binod Shrestha, Amy Stevens, and Jeffrey Stockbridge.

Dolores Poacelli
Dolores Poacelli

Poacelli’s table was right next to ours. The artist was doing a good business with her small colorful affordable collage and painted works. People were buying them by the gross–well a small exaggeration. They were buying more than one at a time, though.

Rebecca Rutstein, Mike Stifel and Oliver

Susan Fenton, John Murphy and Olivia Murphy
Susan Fenton, Olivia Murphy and John Murphy.

Wiggly kid, wiggly dad, wiggly picture. The place was full of baby strollers and dogs…and their parents….it was like being at a park! Fenton, a photographer whose work is on exhibit at Schmidt-Dean Gallery now has competition from her son, Raphael Fenton Spaid who is in the Nexus Selects show (down the hall from the Icebox.) Murphy is the inLiquid exhibitions director.

Tim Belknap

Belknap is one of the Belknap brothers who performed under those big bobble head doll’s heads last week at Flux Space. Great to meet him–we loved the performance. He said they’re working on a new piece. See post.

Joe DiGiuseppe and Chris Golas

Speaking of Flux Space, these two are two of the three founders of Flux Space and AMMS. They were going back there for the Big Art Show taking place from 6-9 pm.

Also seen but we’re sorry we don’t have pictures: Richard Hricko, another Crane Arts founder, David Kessler, video guy extraordinaire, photographer Robert Asman, Peregrine Arts Managing Curator Jordan Rockford, Ellie Brown, artist Joanne Bosack who was with ex-curator Debbie Allen (she’s moved on and now is making ceramics), and artist Bobbie Rosen.
