The Addiction and Art show was reviewed by the Frederick News Post in the "72 Hour" FNP magazine. A link to the article is here.
The Addiction and Art show displayed basic information about the program in four large yellow blocks, shown below.
A poet purportedly living in Lowdown County, BraSh, attended the Artomatic show at Frederick and wrote poems for all of the artists. An example of BRASH's work is in the PDF below. A PDF is used because the poems even have musical tones (created by Grunge, BraSh's partner in this) that go with the words and in order to get the tones right they must be positioned precisely with the words in the poem. Read this blog for a complete explanation of the music for BraSh's poetry and Grunge's music.
BraSh also brought the hamper shown below: "The hamper was modpodged for me by Alana Maubury Hunter using images from previous AOMs (Artomatic Shows). She is a master calligrapher and runs Gallery 141 in Lancaster PA and the Feathertree Calligraphy Yurt at Glen Echo Park. She is a very dear friend, but she intended for me to WEAR that hamper around my neck, so that I would have something to write on, and apparently so that I wouldn't call any attention to myself at all....BraSh
