Nothing says "I Love You" like hearts & flowers. Here are a few things we think might do the trick.
In March we'll be presenting a show of new art from West Virginia cowboy artist Fort Guerin. Early 20th Century western comic books, movies, and dime novels are his primary inspirations, that and the old west mythos he absorbed growing up in Arizona.

From October 11 - November 27 Yard Dog will be showing art by Jon Langford, Eric Bellis, and Kevin Lycett. The three are associated with the British rock band/art collective the Mekons, which has been together in one form or another since 1976. Langford & Lycett were founding members, with Lycett staying in the band through 1983 or so. Eric Bellis joined in 1984, and he and Langford continue performing with the band to this day. They just released their umpteenth album, "Existentialism," the cd version of which comes with a 96-page book of writing and art. There will be a limited number of copies of "Existentialism" available at the opening.
Langford will be showing paintings incorporating his signature country singers, cowboys, skeletons, and skeleton cowboys.
Eric Bellis paints Western Americana: buffalo, cowboys, native americans.
Lycett is contributing a collection of mini-paintings of mini-monsters.
The opening reception on October 15 will also feature a short performance by the Mini Mekons, with Langford, Bellis, and Mekons singer Sally Timms. The band will play a longer set later that evening down the street at the Continental Club.
