Dufala’s Ice Cream Truck featured in the Wicklow Times

Too bad the article on feuding ice cream truck drivers in this Irish newspaper has nothing to do with the piece or their 2006 show at 1026.
Way to go lazy photo intern!

Dwayne Boooone!

With more work than we could fit on the walls, a mural, sculpture, and 2 zines, Dwayne Boone is prolific to say the least. This guy will easily have enough to fill a museum in a few years.

Pieces are priced between $20-$40 so you can’t lose. Assemble your own series and become an instant art collector.

For those with a tiny budget, zines are going for $2, so something for everyone.

If you do stop by be sure to look in the flat files to see what couldn’t fit on the walls!

Visionary Artist Paints a Different Kind of Philadelphia

Artist Dwayne Boone of Philadelphia Developmental Disabilities Corporation (PDDC) will be having his first solo exhibition at Space 1026 Gallery this April. A prolific painter, Boone will be showing over 150 portraits, landscapes, wildlife paintings, and several sculptural works, all created within the last year. Boone will also be creating a large, site-specific mural in the gallery space. Boone, who was recently featured on Channel 6 news uses his paintings to create a world both gritty and magical – and his work emerges as distinctly Philadelphian.

Dwayne Boone’s artistic talent has been recognized by many in the disabilities field, but this is the first exhibition for Boone that is strictly based on the quality of his artistic style and vision. Boone’s fresh, folk art style and love of topical subjects, makes for a perfect match for the Space 1026 gallery. Please join us on First Friday, April 2nd from 6-10pm, for the reception and to meet the artist.

Dwayne Boone’s Art Gallery
April 2nd – 30th
Reception: First Friday, April 2nd, 6 – 10 pm
Space 1026
1026 Arch Street, 2nd Floor (only accessible by stairs)
