I do thank Dave Wilby, the owner of the Dawson Street Pub, for the opportunity to exhibit work in his gallery (Manayunk is a Philadelphia neighborhood). In fact, every month for the past six months I’ve been curating photography exhibits here, coordinating the art receptions with the one-weekend-a-month celebrity chef takeover. My good friend Tom Bera is the guest BBQ chef, owner of award-winning Philly Blind Pig BBQ, which provides mouth-watering delicacies such as slow smoked beef ribs and brisket, pork ribs and pulled pork, BBQ chicken, salmon, and other specialties. The artsy crowd gets to rub elbows with the foodie crowd, and everyone has a great time!

While I have a number of photographs in various group shows around Philadelphia this month, you can get a good perspective on the range of my cemetery work at my Dawson Street solo show. It’s up for the month of December, and as I said, I am selling the work right off the wall. I assume there will be some left to look at on December 20!

There are a number of events occurring on December 20 at the Dawson Street. Stop by and enjoy the company, the wonderful food, the winter ales. Sit by the fire if you like (though that would be outside next to Tom Bera’s Philly Blind Pig smoker!) and wait for Tom’s Christmas Special for the weekend - Polish Lasagna (think layers of pierogies and kielbasa)! A Tap Takeover by guest brewers the Conshohocken Brewing Company is planned (let’s assume free samples) and live music will be provided by the band, "The Conshohocken Curve" at 9pm!
