As you may have heard, Luke Yocum, an artist who lived for a time in Williamsport and who had a studio at the Pajama Factory, passed away the other day in New Orleans. Luke was vivacious and colorful, like his paintings. He will be missed.
Please consider making a donation of any amount to help his family bring him home and lay him to rest.
My brother & best friend passed away on December 15th. He was only 35 years old and resided in New Orleans Louisiana. He grew up in a rural Pennsylvania town but always had big city dreams. He spent the last 17 years of his life living by the brush as a starving artist. The world will seem quite plain without his talent & creativity.
There’s an excellent new blog in town, one with a heavy emphasis on art and entertainment, which is, of course, something very near and dear to our hearts: PortObserver.com.
Started by Pajama Factory alumnus Matthew Parrish, it contains some very high quality writing in a format that allows them to dig deeper and find the story behind the story. Case in point is this piece on Tim Miller’s piece at Converge Gallery.
