AUCTION TIME: 1026 Art Auction PREVIEW & Merch Madness

6 to 9pm

Stop by the gallery and preview art auction items. Visitors in the gallery and online can place bids on our eBay auction that will run throughout the following week.

Merch Madness will be in effect as well with your favorite Space 1026 artists selling their wares.

AUCTION TIME: Live Call In Show from 7-9pm
Mary Beth Flannery and Eduardo Luardo come from a retail and performance art background. They are longtime fans of home shopping as they were both extremely overweight for several years and couch-ridden. They will be hosting a very special hour of Space1026 Shop From Home, “AUCTION TIME!” this December 5, 2008.

They started the show, “Auction Time” after a stint on The Antique Road Show where they were humiliated after bringing what they though was an authentic alicorn (unicorn horn).

They live and work in Narberth, Pennsylvania with their 3 cats, Chairman Meow, Col. Otis J. Whiskerson and Lord Alfred Powerbottom and their many collectible dolls.

Skateboarding, Action, and Architecture

October 23: PIFAS

Faculty-member Brandon Joyce shares his inexpert opinions on how it is action that anoints architecture with meaning. Calling on street-skating as a high model, he’ll speak about how use, misuse, and transformation can override- or even negate- intent and expression in architectural design.

The talk will be short and followed by a discussion on the topics… and, of course, more skate videos.

Coffee will be served.
Free and Open to the Public
