Snarks vs. Bears, Pigs, Nutcrackers, etc.

Cece's brain fell out a couple of weekends ago when several of the Snarky bunch forced their way into a high-security compound in the heart of scenic Grants Pass, Oregon. This was not a secret military base, nor a defense contractor's 'Skunk Works'; even juicier, it was the dreamland called the 'Bear Hotel'. The BH is the artist's version of the aforementioned 'skunk works'; a place where artists huddle in a ghetto of cubicles
and are alternately whipped with rusty chains and promsised sushi bites to force them to produce large scale art pieces around a theme dictated by the evil overlord, Bradystopholes. Naah, just kiddin' Brady Adams is a local banker/art patron/recovering politician who has this crazy warehouse full of past pieces;

Like all these crazy bears. The Snarks are gazing in awe at Treegeek's bear pair. For a few shots of this project in process, look at our posts from Feb. 09.

Above right is 'Babyfoot bears' by our friend Lane Cosner; an artist who lives near Cave Junction. Lane is working in his home studio on a door for this years show.

...This year the artists are basing their works on a big ol' solid wood door. The artist for this piece was not around for me to get relevant info, so I'll just claim it.

"Hey, I paid my damn dollar, where's the nekkidity?" I seem to be saying in this here photo of Treegeek's piece. It may be hard to belive but there are over thirty people smershed in back there, admiring and snarking.

Big Timber and the American Eagle; let's git us some freedom fries, Bubba.

Yep, you guessed it, leather fish. The second one with a saddle is about six feet long. LEATHER, hello.That's so hot.

These people were rounded up and fed to famished ferrets soon after this snap was taken.

A photo is worth a thousand words, so whisper "What the hell?" to yourself about 334 times.
kelly wasted this four minutes of your life, sorry.
