Sundays Are For Painting, Fiend!February 27, 2014 - Instagram it baby! We’re all amateur Avedons with our camera phones.

A Little Light Dusting Doesn’t Hurt, Fiend!February 13, 2014 - Well dust can be dealt with either Windex or Pledge but what if DUST is the base of the entire show.

Paulo Brighenti: Po / On View: February 13 - March 16, 2014 / Gallery Hours: Wed - Sun (12 to 7 pm) & Mon - Tue by Appointment / ROOSTER Gallery. 190 Orchard Street.
