Art Machine Productions Opening Night Reception

Tomorrow, June 12, is the opening reception for a new gallery space in the Fishtown area of Philadelphia. I will be featuring three works at this event that includes artwork by over twenty artists, sword-swallowing, performance art and tattoos! 

From a writeup by the Philadelphia City Paper:

Fishtown welcomes a new addition to its artistic community, but this ain't your mama's gallery space. Art Machine Productions is a unique workshop that combines art and tattooing, headed by Tim and Suzi Pangburn. The former tattooed for nine years and dreamed of a place where he could provide his customers with a prime tattoo experience away from the stresses of the parlor. But obtaining proper zoning proved difficult, which led to the change in vision. "We wanted a space that could be not a shop, not a studio, not a gallery ... but a place for artistic growth and experimentation regardless of the medium," says Tim. The bilevel space features Tim's private tattoo studio on the second level, with a large workspace for local artists below. The opening reception includes a group show featuring more than 50 mixed-media pieces (including a yeti head!) from about 20 local artists; entertainment by local sword-swallower Lenore Lovelace; plus snacks and music.
