Sometimes, Cats Are Assholes...


Yes, but it's on my mind right now.

Dear Ungrateful Cat I'm taking care of:
I feed you
I change your litter box frequently
I give you treats
I let you get all snuggly and give you attention, even when I'm tired as fuck
You pooped in my shoe and I let that go

-sigh- What do you want?

The least you can do is appreciate how AWESOME I am at air guitar solos!

Cats these days, no respect!

Another Gallery Gone :(

Skinner Howard Set To Close At The End Of June!

Simon would agree with me.

Sadface. This is the email I received from the gallery.

June 5, 2012
Dear Art Patrons, Collectors, Family and Friends:

For the past 7 years we have been filling a 5000 square feet space with around 80 ART shows accommodating the art of approximately 200 artists…!  A lot of effort and work and we have done this with fervor and passion. It just what we do and what we like. However, the monthly pressure of maintaining a large space is something we can do without and we’re looking for different ways to show/sell art. It is not “business-as-usual” and we have to find a better way going forward .

We have decided to close the current gallery, take some time out, recharge, redirect, and find a business model that will work for both of us. It is a bitter-sweet decision, since the gallery space we created is one-of-a-kind and we will miss it a lot. We will miss you and wanted to thank you so much for your great support, patronage and being part of the Skinner Howard Contemporary Gallery.

We will maintain and keep our website current. 

We will still represent our artists.
We are still art brokers/dealers and will be available to be of service to you.

We have one more (last!) show in June, opening this Thursday with a preview from 5 - 7pm and then the Second Saturday reception. Hope you can stop by.

This is not Goodbye but “See you soon, we’ll be in touch!”

Best wishes to you,

With great appreciation,

Gwenna and Pamela
