Hello harlots, charlatans and all others of low moral standing —
It’s been quite some time since I have sent you an electronic missive from Waks World HQ. I’ve missed you so much, (insert name here)!
Although I haven’t recently pestered you with self-serving e-mails detailing my artistic exploits, I have been quite busy crankin’ out paintings and prints with Soviet-style efficiency, doin’ my college best to titillate and offend both serfs and royalty alike. My practice has been steadily growing, and I am über excited for what the future holds. In that spirit, I have two shows comin’ up. Here are the deets:
1) PCNJ EDITIONS: Print Matters!
Opening Reception - Saturday, February 23, 2013, 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
73 Market Street
Newark, New Jersey 07102
The show runs from Saturday, February 21 through Saturday, March 30, 2012.
Last year, I was fortunate enough to do a fellowship at the Printmaking Center of New Jersey (PCNJ), along with three other super duper talented artists, Ibrahim A. Ahmed III, Diana Gonzalez Gandolfi and Joe Ciardiello. This show, which was originally exhibited at PCNJ, moves to Newark’s wonderful Gallery Aferro and features the silkscreen print, entitled ” Buy now! .today!,” I created with Master Printer Randy Hemminghaus, as well as a dozen other pieces in the grand tradition of Waksian Kwaliteé®.
2) Solo(s) Project House at Fountain Art Fair NYC
Friday, March 8 through Sunday, March 10, 2013
69th Regiment Armory, Lexington Avenue & 25th Street
New York, New York 10010
Hours of operation:
Friday, March 8: 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. - VIP/Press Preview
Friday, March 8: 7:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. - Opening Night Reception (21+)
Saturday, March 9: 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. - Open to the public

Sunday, March 10: 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. - Open to the public
This is the second year that I will be showing at Fountain NYC with Newark’s premiere commercial gallery, Solo(s) Project House, which is a terrific institution that has be very supportive of me and my work. Fountain NYC is part of NY Art Week and if you didn’t get a chance to come on down last year, make the effort this year, because Fountain features more that 60 international avant garde galleries and a lot of krazeé shit goes on there! Plus I will have three - that’s right three - new paintings proudly hanging in the Solo(s) Project House booth.
Well, that’s enough blather for now. As always, thank you for your past and future patronage!
