I have played a few shows at the Spot and have always enjoyed the vibe of the room.  The last gig was with ERB warming up for Rebirth of New Orleans and I really got a chance to check out the art in the comfy seating area. Nick is a a great guy who is genuinely interested in supporting the music and art scene in the city of Providence.  Providence is lucky to have him.
A heartfelt thanks to Nick and The Spot Underground for exhibiting my photography!
Such a great music scene, wonderful bar, food, staff and of course art!
I hope that you can visit soon and check it out.

Many thanks to Preservation Framer of North Attleboro for their support of "Asylum". Their professionalism and creativity in customizing my 18th century frame for "Asylum" is outstanding!
Folks, if you have any matting or framing needs, Rob Dziubek and the framing staff are simply the best.

I confess that I'm a little weirded out that you had this photograph framed but agree that Matt and Rob are the great. I met them through a close friend a couple of years ago and Matt recently invited me to show in the rock and roll themed art show. FYI, if you show with them they give you a 25% discount for framing on work you exhibit and thereafter. Something to keep in mind. I saw on facebook that your marching band won an award. Congrats! Thanks too for your kind words to Bill. That meant a lot to me. Happy spring.

"Geoffrey was thinking about how disjointedly time seemed to flow, passing in a blur at times, with single images standing out more clearly than others. And then, at other times, every second was significant, etched in his mind.
Then, it occurred to him, all moments are happening all the time."

I do love it when Spring is life-sized.
