FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
For additional information, contact: Brad Rogers 503-236-0600 KILL: September 2nd 2010 WHO: Clovis von Tavel Crummett 1908-1988 WHAT: Collages and Construction
Exhibition Notes: Clovis Crummett spent most of his life in the Army or in Military service, working as a freelance photographer, US Army photographer and photo officer in the Far East and at various US posts. He retired from military service in 1963. After that he worked as a civilian at Webb Air Force Base near Big Spring, Texas, and for the Naval Photo Center in Washington D.C. before retiring from Government service in the early 1980s. Clovis Crummett was not what you would normally think of as an artist. Mark Crummett recounts his father saying he started making art while stationed in Korea in the late 50's. Many of the early works were primitive paintings, but in an effort to create a more realistic still life, Clovis started putting actual objects on them; if he were painting a wine bottle he would include an actual wine bottle label. It wasn't long before the painting became more three-dimensional with the inclusion of wood and found material. Clovis was always bringing something home that he had found beside the road or pulled from the dumpster at work. Many of Clovis's works are semi-autobiographical, recounting places he lived and jobs he held, covered with souvenirs of a long life in the military and beyond- ticket stubs from air travel, fast food wrappers, postcards, keys, old letters, color swatches and whatever ephemera life handed him. Brad Rogers/ Plan-B Gallery is proud to give Clovis von Tavel Crummett his first show. WHEN: September 2nd thru September 30th. WHERE: Brad Rogers /Plan-B Gallery 120 NW 9th Ave, Port, OR. 97209 HOURS: 11-6:00 Tuesday thru Saturday 12-5:00 pm Sunday.

Larry knows this equipment like the back of his hand. In fact, he designed most of it and oversaw the installation, testing and operation of it. Over time, he began to think of these machines as his children; he never found the time to marry.
He's hired and mentored generations of mechanics and engineers on this equipment. He's watched it, and them, grow and change. He can tell by the vibrations through the floor if there's a problem.
And so now, more than 50 years after he entered this hall for the first time, he's leaving for the last time. New ownership and new Homeland Security rules mean he won't be able to come back and visit the way he had planned to, to see this equipment, his equipment, or his proteges again. As he leaves his office for the last time, he stops to say goodbye to his world.

I've got a show opening this First Thursday, 7/1/10, in the re:Vision Gallery in Portland. "A Sufficiently Advanced Technology" combines high tech and natural materials to make the working tools of the post-apocalyptic info-shaman. The title comes from a quote from scientist and science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
Also being shown are the "Demon Modules," torn from the charred underbelly of God's Own Motherboard.
Join us for the reception on Thursday, 7/1 from 6 to 8 p.m. The show runs the end of August at SCRAP, 2915 NE Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. in Portland.

Try Jim's Gun Supply for all your colorful gun needs! It starts getting weird about halfway down the page. Sadly, they don't actually sell these guns (these are photos of some of their custom work), but they will colorize your weapon however you want. They have a whole section of just pink guns and accessories!
It seems like I recall there being a law now that toy guns, water pistols, etc. cannot be colored like real guns (or maybe that was a reaction from the toy weapons industry). I don't suppose there's a law that says real weapons can't look like toys, is there?

Having a new blog is a good excuse to try out new software. This is being posted with Blog Entry Poster from my Ubuntu laptop. It's a pretty bare-bones interface, and a decidedly unimaginative app name, but it's easy to configure (at least for Blogger) and easy to use. Doesn't seem to be a way to add a photo, though. Too bad. Shall we post, then? Yes...
