The undeniable Crunt and Biscuit

Chris Brown and Bradford Hastings come through again with two unbelievable pieces.

Originally written by Nathan Wolfe Coleman for Bob Costas, Chris and Bradford have captured the excitement and awe the crowd must have felt when Bill Oolie threw the first (and only) pass ever to break the sound barrier.

Justice Marosa's Radio Dramas are known the world over for their twisted plotlines and their historical value. Written by Fionn McCabe and Produced and recorded by Chris and Bradford, this episode is one of the best known of the series.

Championship Rings!

Amazing Photographs of the incredible collaboration between artists Allison Layton and Leslie Shershow. These rings capture childlike playfulness while displaying unique and beautiful craftsmen ship. Each ring is one of a kind and sheds light on the individuality of many of the players on the Corn Team.

They are awesome!

Home Coming A Success!

Oh Nancy; Home Coming Stories

June 13th - August 1st, 2009

Oh Nancy founded by Nate Wellman and Fionn McCabe
Home Coming Stories curated by Brian Burkhardt

Opening Reception June 13th 2009 7- 10 p.m.

Oh Nancy is a vehicle for artists that provides them with a pre-existing narrative structure into which they can fit their work. By having a constantly open submission process Nate Wellman and Fionn McCabe become instigators of a larger phenomena which has grown to include jewelry makers, photographers, sculptors, conceptual artists, and various other kinds of contemporary thinkers and object makers. The narrative, which includes a classic heroine and battling forces of good and evil is manifested through traditional American characters such as football players, monsters, and blonde damsels in distress. The exhibition at Gallery Diet will bring together all of these media, and the work of over thirty artists.
