The year long collaboration with Amanda Palmer and the Grand Theft Orchestra came to an exciting close a few weeks ago with their final concert right here at Boston’s Paradise Lounge. We had a great time, later visiting backstage with still newlyweds, Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman. The couple are making their home in Cambridge. Many may know that Amanda has blogged about canceling tours due to standing by a very sick friend.
This special long time friend happens to be a new author. Rick and I were fortunate to attend his book launch of Lunatic Heroes. just before Thanksgiving. Anthony Martignetti read 2 of his witty yet hard hitting stories, peppered with familiar Boston Italian / Catholic expressions and accents. Neil read from his novel to be published next year, The Ocean at the End of the Lane. So now we have to wait to know what happens! Amanda read her forward to Lunatic Heroes, and entertained us with ukulele and song. She was joined for a song by surprise musical guest, Jason Webley. In a rare appearance fully clothed, she looked beautiful in a 40′s style dress, perfect attire for her duet with Neil of that old favorite “Making Whoopee” Sweet! I just finished Lunatic Heroes and Rick’s grabbed it from my hands – raw, comic, real -recommended!
The paintings for this art exhibition series and book project will be returned to the invited artists early 2013. There is talk of an art auction, or paintings will be available for sale directly from the artists. When more information becomes available, we’ll send out a blog. If you want to be on preferred list, send me an email.

Neil Gaiman sent this response to Rick’s new works, a set of oils updating myth as metaphor in the metropolis. The Minotaur withdrawn in his maze, sits at the Fault Line, while Fury is the Cliff Dweller, urgent and teetering upon the tenement precipice. Both are available during “Sur-Realism”, June 16 – 30th at Arcadia Fine Arts Gallery, SoHo, New York.

Entering the Varnish Fine Art Gallery for the opening reception of “To have and have not”, the red dot tagged “FM Signal” as SOLD already. It was a wonderful show with work by artists we admire including Barron Storey, John Watkiss, Lee Ballad (also curator) and several more. Varnish Fine Art Gallery was packed with people enjoying the art and conversations, eventually spilling out into the warm San Francisco evening. More photos to come…in fact, send some if you have them to firstname.lastname@example.org -Thanks
