Lucy, Pulled Pork and Chad Spann ALL Melt in Your Mouth

Aurora and I skedaddled downtown tonight for Clarksville's First Thursday Art Crawl.  I dropped by the APSU Downtown Gallery for the US Bank Open Exhibition to start the night in Strawberry Alley.  No, I didn't place yet again but there was some really cool artwork from a wide variety of amateur and professional artists.  Taking home an award in this local exhibit has eluded me and can't seem to win the elite judges over year after year.  Discussing this with other patrons of the show, we concluded that the judges simply assume I would spend the award money on weed and don't see the point acknowledging my work.  Until next year, here's "Lucy in the Sky," a collaborative illustration I did a few years ago with Miranda Herrick.  She lined and colored the kaleidoscope eyes and I did the rest.  Lucy was just too good not to enter this year since she had yet to be exhibited in a gallery setting.  I got a premium spot right in the middle of the room and some wonderful reactions from viewers!

So WHO did take home the coveted Best in Show?  My main man and puppeteer-extraordinaire Paul Fly.  Paul has a dream job in Nashville making electronic puppets and entered a wicked mixed media piece...


Mixed Media work with some real action!


After the heartbreak of not winning the big bucks at the this annual juried exhibit, we moved over to Historic Franklin Street to see what Chad Spann was doing with his solo show at The Roxy Theater.  Chad wasn't drinking tonight so he wooed the patrons and made a sale instead of dancing on the ladies and peeing on things to mark his territory.  Chad's such a class act, he even served his own pulled pork steaming hot to Art Walkers!  Here's a few pics of the Spannish Flamingo creeping with his art...
