A Public Hanging (out)
posted: December 10, 2014
I have a show up currently at the Thayer Gallery in Braintree MA. The opening (actually a middle-ing since the show was open two weeks prior) was last Saturday night and all sorts of great people were kind enough to attend. Here is photographic proof, an alibi if you will. 
The calm before the storm....
Scott Bakal, Me, Victor Juhasz...
Tom Luft, The Lovely Julia Luft, Hall O' Famer Satch (The Satch) Sanders...
The back of a gentleman's noggin with Skip James staring him down. John Lee Hooker looks ready to get Skip's back should the troubles present themselves....
Rob Dunleavey explaining to Theresa Seelye that this is probably not quite art. Still....
Casey Tebo, film director and Aerosmith videographer, his massively talented photographer wife Melissa Mahoney, and Victim advocate/kick ass attorney Wendy Murphy all amused by something amusing....
Fox 25 anchor Mark Ockerbloom and the wonderful Sheila Peterson....
I've wanted Carlos Arredondo, Boston Marathon hero, and Victor Juhasz to meet for a long time, simply because they share a deep humanity that I can only begin to understand. Each has gone the extra mile in his own way. ...
Tim O'Brien made the trip all the way from Brooklyn. I was very touched by that. It's hard just to get me out of the house. I saw Tim looking closely at the stuff on the walls at one point and I had to turn away. ...
Bob Pastore showed up! I think he sold Louisa Bertman a double spread in next year's Workbook....
My mother, Virginia Sanders and my high school sweetheart, who I still have a crush on....
It was a fun night, with the real stars of the show being the incredibly accomplished array of people who chose to come out on a cold drizzly Saturday night in December. Thanks everyone!

That guy genuinely admiring the work put into the Skip James piece should professionally noggin model...

It was a great show! :)

Nice words. The night was worth the trip, not only for the look at your career, but to see so many people who love you there to see it all. Love the shot of Dale and Carlos.

Spectacular!

Looks like a blast Dale. Too bad I was 2000 miles away. Oh yea, I am always 2000 miles west. Congrats!

It was so worth the slog through the ceaseless rain to be at the opening. Great to see you, Scott, Maria, (Tim was just leaving as we pulled up and I almost tagged his vehicle) and to meet and talk to a number of very cool people. Your large paintings of rock and blues giants are outstanding and portend a potential serious gallery career as well.
