Summer-Long 'Used Art' Treasure Hunt

Do you love to yard sale? Or want a reason to try it? This event is for you!

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to spend summer scavenging through boot, estate, garage, jumble, moving, rummage, tag, & yard sales; bazaars; flea markets; swap meets; whole-house cleanouts; etc to find the best work of art at the best price. Both "best"s are subjective. Then, Saturday evening October 5 2019 at Espresso Bueno in Barre (see companion event below), attend the art opening & reception, where we hang our finds on the walls as an art show. You may buy, sell, or hold—as desired—but all art hangs for two calendar months.

Please read The S.L.U.A.T.H. Guidelines before participating, then email info@wooo.tv to register as a S.L.U.A.T.H. To reserve wallspace at the art opening, there is absolutely
NO PARTICIPATION WITHOUT ADVANCE REGISTRATION. SPACE IS LIMITED.

The Upside @ WBTV-LP, 99.3FM in Burlington VT @ 9:00am

If you're suffering withdrawals since WORST. SONG. EVER., or if you want to GET PUMPED (as in: your stomach) for this November's show, then join Gin Ferrara, Patrick Heltz, & Lovejoy as we tackle the hermeneutics of bad pop music. What are the elements that make songs go astray? How does dismantling bad songs draw us together? Why are some people's faves your least faves, and can we still be friends, or do we need to talk? From the discomforting & creepy, to the biased & ignorant, to the ill advised & just plain embarrassing. www.993wbtv.org/shows/the-upside
