Luke Yocum

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.

(Shared gofundme post from John Yocum)

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.

Election Night Excitement

We had a little bit of election night excitement tonight at Way Cool Beans when the coffee roaster overheated and filled the area with smoke.

The Williamsport Bureau of Fire were called as a precaution and did a great job of making sure everyone and everything was safe.

Way Cool Beans will be closed early tomorrow until they get the all-clear to open from the Codes Department.

Update: November 9, 10am
He’s open!

David Becker at the Genetti

Just got word that our own David Becker will be the featured artist at the Genetti in November!

If you haven’t seen David’s work, do get down to this show—his work is thoughtful and considered, with a philosophical quality to it, much like David himself. (Congratulations on the show, David—and love the portrait!)

Here’s a great thing

Veruschka Stevens

Cliff Stevens, who’s been quite active with Val Beggs’ sewing classes, took the pattern of a hand-woven Bolivian textile and had it printed online. When the fabric arrived, he reverse-engineered his wife’s favorite top and duplicated it with the new fabric, giving her a truly wonderful gift.

Not only is this very cool, it’s the kind of thing *you* can do, when you Make What You Wear! Thanks for sharing, Cliff!

Clever

Dave Becker demonstrates "an old sign painter's trick."

David Becker had the door to his studio open just now and took a moment to demonstrate what he described as “an old sign painter’s trick.” It’s a stick with a rubber ball mounted on the end, that lets you work more easily, while keeping your hands off the paper. (You’ll be able to see the finished product at a show in November we’ll be talking about more as its opening gets closer.)

Thanks for the demo, Dave!
