12 Things of Bourgeoismas (Extinctual Retrospectivism)

EFAC 2020

I had an idea to do this post on December 25th to commemorate the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Louise Bourgeois (above), but somehow sheltering in place & being unemployed keeps me so busy?! But here it is, the cusp of a clean calendar, and here are some of the many Things that we at the Extinct Flightless Arts Collective contrived to create in 02020...

Be Alone With Art

DCAC is still taking appointments for 1 to 5 people at a time (quarantine-buddies, masks required) to visit the Wallmountables 2020 and NanoGallery shows. Wallmountables ends Oct. 18th -- your last chance to see this chunk of rust (with bird's nest, rose, and safety glass), since evidently it has been sold! Hurrah for little red dots!

Worry Less -- Camp S'more!

Some of the wonderful Burner folks behind Virtual del Fuego came together this August for a small, COVID-sensitive outdoor party called Worry Less -- Camp S'more! I interviewed Diana Smiles and Scruffy Rob to find out how it went.

Walls and masks and things

The DC Arts Center is having a real art show! During a pandemic!

WALLMOUNTABLES is back -- the unjuried, all-are-welcome display of Anything That Fits In A Two-Foot Square. It's like a tiny Artomatic, all in one big pretty room, and you don't have to meet the artists. Er, I mean, you don't GET to meet the artists...

Books about shipwrecks (and other books)

unsorted photos of available C.R. Tucker books (maritime history etc. -- still in process of adding pix/info here)... contact us if interested!

We have SO MANY cool, old, eccentric, fascinating, historically intriguing BOOKS. We could send you a random one... a grab-bag... or the exact tomes you have been yearning after (especially if said tomes feature old-time shipwrecks &/or the Auckland Islands, or are by Patrick O'Brian!)

spring [carcass] cleaning

This mouse died quietly (no signs of foul play) in front of the corner china closet in our dining room, in January -- crawling to their final carpet nap almost directly below the fox-skull assemblage. This forced me to conclude that the mouse intended to leave their body to Weird Art.
