Coming soon: Torpedo House, a new concept in gallery presentation

blakerA rare and magical private house gallery, where every room offers superb examples of overpainted vintage press photographs and black and white archival prints, many from the pages of the highly regarded Baltimore Sun. See this work in the residential context of an exquisitely restored 1929 Alice Washburn neo-garrison home where the furniture is as curated as the artworks.

boy treeSo flagpole sitting was a big fad in the US in the ’20’s. This kid was photographed in 1929 right at the end of all that fun. Doesn’t he look like he’s having a good time? I suppose there are stupider things to do. Let’s all think really hard and come up with a few. Well done, everyone. Now think of some stupid things that have nothing to do with Trump. Or go click the boy and find out more about this astounding photo.

FlamingogoThere’s no business like the pink flamingo business, especially at the Moss Bureau enhanced shop at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. These babies get a lot of attention. No surprise, really. Just the thing to be riding around your pool on these hot hot summer days. Giddy up, Divine! Eat your heart out, John Waters.
