4. Tom Sale and Andy Don Emmons: The Illusive Goose Man of Bardwell and His Chicken Miracles
November 13, 7–10PM
Tom Sale Artist Statement:
Outsider, Odd Fellow, Parson, Professor and Artist
Tom is a recipient of a grant from Folsom Prison where I served time for stealing mugs and tie clips from the gift shop of The Amon Carter Museum. He has exhibited in group shows at Carl’s Jr and Neighborhood, though not at the same time. I currently spend my time between my studio and Berlin.
Andy Don Emmons:
Outsider, Odd Fellow, Cattle Man, Musician and Artist
This Farfield farmer curates his canvases from fallen barns and Canton Flea Market finds. His art style is a celebration of Folk Art that can only be created from his impressive knowledge of history in American Folk culture. So hide your scrap metal piles and vintage paints as Andy is known to be spotted rummaging through roadside left-behinds for his next great work of art.
