Assemblage Sketch by Ryan Gallagher: Ska With Ham


Ska With Ham
for Scott Pierce

highway
pipe
There
about us—
elbows. The
door, no
clearing

some
forest, for
men


and

into stones, lined up
multitextured dwelling
art with the authority
riotous despair

EYE
CON
TACT

on me
they count
their bones,

Mercutio

Derek's cousin "Derek Fener"

from our first Boston "fun"draiser. Derek's cousin spells his name with one n because it's easier.

This was before we started digitally archiving our art. Many of the projects from 2006-2007 were funded from this live auction. This 1 of 7 bourbons Kentucky Derek drank on stage over 35 minutes. He was asked to leave later that night after the auction.

Paintings 5, 6, 9 and the Buddha are Ryan's. The Dali over shoulder is Derek's and there is just a glimpse of Derek's painting of Varitek punching A-Rod (better image below).

The photo in center is the work of Zippy Corning and below it is a photo-collage from Ariana Krantzite.
