October 26, 2007 - Water Valley, Mississippi
The Motel Art Show - One Night Stand at the Ole Miss Motel - was last night (although it is STILL that night for me) and it was a SMASHING SUCCESS. There was a drizzle all day long in Oxford, but people turned out and we had a great time.
I'm so happy that every one who came into my shabby motel room gallery enjoyed the Punk Rock Junkie Motel Death theme/installation with the unmade bed and dead junkie punks propped up against the headboard within their shabby motel room frames. That was quite a lot of fun to take a room that had seen much better days and play up its torn & frayed edges.
I was especially thrilled that another artist who showed, Paul Goggins (who also fronts a couple punk rock bands that played later in the evening at Jubilee) totally shared my sentiments on my favorite shot of Darby Crash (its the one above, in the main part of this site). And I thank him for trading me his Ramones painting for the Darby photo.
There's so much more to talk about - but its after 4 AM and I MUST GO TO SLEEP.
