Pilgrimage of prejudice

Tour of intolerance, South of the Border her we come...

And onward they sailed.....

Hi we're in Delaware.

In Maryland wench Leia storming the castle of her most desired destination.. MEDIEVAL TIMES!

and in Virginia. Treasure!!!! If your gold is Jerkey!

and how relieved we were to pull into port after lesions with the goast of the Virginian sea.

and here is where the pirates learned in 1977 log cabins came back into style. Get your own here in North Carolina.

While The Cats Are Away The Mice Have Very Little Free Time

Sure, you could still read about the Miami trip, but what if you just couldn't get away? Well, don't worry, because half of us here know how you feel. Much like the runners-up on American Idol, we have to sit and watch all the fun from afar. But we'll show 'em. We're gonna do stuff too.

Sunday, December 7th is our closing night for Liz Brown: OMGWTF. If you haven't had a chance, be sure to visit us to see this fantastic show. And if you have, stop in again, because we might have a few surprises for you.

Then on Friday, December 12th, we've got opening night for It's A Small World. This group show focuses on the little side of art, mixing sculptures, limited edition prints and other artwork, all in the 11"x17" range. Our artists are attempting to use this restriction to cut right to the meat of the work, leaving pieces that remind one of "fun size" Halloween candy (or perhaps we should say haiku). We expect you'll be pleased, and hope you'll be there.

Finally, Friday, December 19th at 8:00pm will see our Hold Me Closer Tiny Dinner Cocktail Party. We'll tell you more about this soon. Just start planning now.

So if you're in Miami, stop by Booth 473 at Scope and tell our weary travelers that everything is fine back home. But if you're still in town, feel free to visit us at the gallery. The cats aren't going to be gone forever, you know, and us mice want some fun of our own!

Miami Or Bust, Day One: Thwarted By a Theremin!

Day One – Thwarted by a Theremin

Bye bye, Brooklyn!

This be the first day of the voyage of good ship “Penske” and after many hard-won battles and salty misadventures we find ourselves adrift in the dark doldrums of New Jersey –bound for SCOPE and Bridge Miami.

The gallery was awash in crates and priceless rolls of bubble wrap. Would it all fit? Would our truck-sharing friends at the Hogar Collection leave us marooned when they saw the sheer volume of art we were taking to Miami? Would the truck buckle on a back road in the middle of South Carolina? Who knew!

Nah. Our good friend Todd helped to load our craft, Then awesome First Mate Marty showed up with an unexpected bounty of socket wrenches and shiny new cordless drills. Sweet.

At the Hogar Collection, we were boarded and taken hostage by a pirate. He made us walk the plank, but saved us from the sharks that infested the Grand Street Sea’s asphalty waters. We called it even and promised that next time he could drive the ship.

And back to Like the Spice! We readied ourselves for an uncharacteristically early departure, called hands to deck, opened our sodas, and would have been on our way –

But for the theremin.


For reasons that we can’t go into, the better part of an hour was spent waiting for the appearance of a theremin. So much for our early start. By the time it finally, finally got there we were well over our scheduled departure time. The theremin is trapped in the back of the truck now, probably plotting its next move.

But we don't care! We're in beautiful, beautiful New Jersey!


And on our way to Baltimore... stay tuned for further adventures!
