Gentlemen, Thieves and Art

Compound was broken into last night. The youngsters threw a city trash can lid through one of the front windows around 3 or 4 in the morning. They took hats and t-shirts. Obviously they are forming an after school baseball team. I breathed a sigh of relief that the art was not touched. An elderly woman brought a couple hats back this afternoon. She said two kids with a handfull of clothes dropped the hats as they passed her on the sidewalk. She now will be given the keys to the city for her good deed. She actually gave the police a really accurate description of the two people. We have been closed all day today. The last of the broken glass has been escorted to the dumpster. Back to the art........ Gentlemen of Spring is up now. The Willamette Week has a small review of Dennis Browns work in last weeks issue. Mari Kubota is now confirmed to be joining Oksana Badrak and Marie Blanco "Mijn Schatje" for our November show. Mari told me yesterday that "her baby will be coming out in June".

thats it for now
