They will be free to curate and organize an exhibit/performance/community event of their choice.
• Exhibits will be voted on by all members of the collective before final approval.
• Work of all types is permitted.
• Members will have the opportunity to use the gallery space for temporary or short-term projects during our winter off-season,
and a traveling show of members' work will be organized annually.
Important: While we do not prohibit members from exhibiting their own work when appropriate, we are not looking to give members solo exhibitions or to continually feature the work of little berlin members only.
• We allow and encourage our members to curate shows that include the work of non-members.

• Gallery sitting shifts during your assigned month (approx. 10hrs/month)
• $25 monthly membership fee.

ERIC DOERINGER: Bootlegs, Homages, and Recreations November 7 — December 28, 2008>> The FUEL Collection is thrilled to present a solo exhibition featuring the bootleg paintings and radical artifacts of Eric Doeringer. Crafted in imitation of the originals, Doeringer’s Bootlegs copy the work of over 100 contemporary artists; from Baldessari, Barney and Bleckner all the way Judd, Katz, Kippenberger, Kawara, Koons, Levine, Prince, Richter, Walker and Warhol; his paintings recreate murals of Saddam Hussein that were defaced by American troops in Iraq; his fraudulent VIP cards and collection of admissions stickers from the Whitney Museum comprise a collection of artifacts that employ his paradoxical “aesthetic strategy.” Doeringer’s work is characterized by contradiction: he, the artist, is crafting objects which can be used for their face value, the value for that which they depict—an admission sticker, a VIP card—but only at the expense of its value as an art object. In being an artist, Doeringer endows value onto the pieces by producing them, yet challenges the viewer to make use of them and simultaneously comprise their efficacy. An Honors BA graduate from Brown University MFA holder from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Doeringer has hosted other solo exhibitions in Soma NYC, Apex Art, and Katharine Mulherin (Toronto, Ontario) while also participating in innumerable group exhibitions and art fairs. His work has traveled as far as Leon, Budapest, and Paris. *Visit www.ericdoeringer.com for more information*
Also, the GRAND SMALL WORKS show has been extended almost another month, and they now have all of the artwork labeled and priced accordingly.

Ducks make very entertaining pets.
If they've been raised alone, they tend to think that they are part of whatever flock they're around. Sometimes they'll believe that they're human, a chicken or even a dog. They're just plain quackers!
- A male duck is called a drake, a female is called a duck. Babies are called ducklings.
- Ducks are related to geese and swans. The duck is the smallest of them all and have shorter necks and wings and a stout body. Ducks can live from 2-12 years, depending on the species.
- Ducks have webbed feet, which act like paddles. A duck waddles instead of walking because of its webbed feet.
- Ducks' feet have no nerves or blood vessels. This means ducks never feel the cold, even if they swim in icy cold water.
- Ducks' feathers are waterproof. There is a special gland that produces oil near the tail that spreads and covers the outer coat of feathers. Beneath this waterproof layer are fluffy and soft feathers to keep the duck warm.
- Ducks keep clean by preening themselves with their beaks, which they do often. They also line their nests with feathers plucked from their chest.
- Ducks were once wild until they were domesticated by the Chinese many hundreds of years ago.
Most farm ducks are of a species called "Pekin". It is harder to tell a male from a female with the Pekin ducks because they look almost the same. Pekin ducks have white or cream coloured feathers and orange coloured bills. They do not fly and do well in captivity. They are also excellent for egg and meat production.
Ducks as Pets
Pet ducks will entertain you with their antics and eat pesky slugs and snails. A female will produce abundant eggs.
To look after ducklings all you need is a large cardboard box, some shavings or straw, a heat lamp, a feeder and a waterer. As they grow, they will need more space and less heat. Keep an eye on the birds; if they stay away from the heat, turn it off, if they get their pen messy quickly, they need more bedding and more space. By 5 or 6 weeks they can probably be outside all the time in good weather.
Ducks need a deep enough water bowl so they can dip their heads in water 2 or 3 times a day. They need to wash their eyes otherwise they can get dry eyes and cataracts.
Ducks are social animals and will suffer if they don't have companionship. So if you can't make this commitment for the full 12 or so years a duck can live, you should get two or more ducks.

For the past several years Daniel Bozhkov has been involved in realizing projects taking various forms from ambitious interventions, media events, to discrete objects, paintings, and photographs. Given Bozhkov's fine art training in Bulgaria, his conceptually-driven work is often anchored by a traditional craft or skill, converging old world and new world practices in order to pursue new meaning, surprising connections and provoke philosophical inquiry.
Daniel Bozhkov studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Sofia, Bulgaria where he was trained in the traditional painting techniques of fresco, egg tempera and oil painting and completed graduate studies in Fine Arts at Hunter College in New York City. He teaches at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Columbia University, Yale University and Rhode Island School of Design. An award -winning artist, Mr. Bozhkov works and exhibits nationally and internationally.

The development of inter-galactic space travel with an emphasis on the physics of pertaining too massive warp speed
What is your favorite sport?
Recently this summer I became the number one international competitor of the sport Spur-Bo-Peez its a combination sport involving Spurlunking, Bocce Ball, and the Trapeze with an emphasis on a mixed martial art performance. Spur-Bo-Peez was actually going to become the 200th introductory sport in this year's Olympics, however a late July accident involving a loose Bocce Ball, faulty wing nut, and some frayed climbing wires killed he previous number one international ranked competitor of the sport. Unfortunately the games commission removed the sport from the Olympic circuit deeming it unfit for international competition. Fortunately for me I was catapulted into the top seed position after this unfortunate accident and myself and fellow Spur-Bo-Peez are confined to performing this overly competitive tasks in back alleys and old mobster basements trying to keep the tradition of this great sport alive.

Arcadia University Art Gallery presents
A CLOSER LOOK 7
Phillip Adams, James Johnson, Kocot & Hatton, Lucy Pullen, Linda Yun
Curated by Sheryl Conkelton
Director of Exhibitions and Special Programs at Tyler School of Art
November 13 - December 21, 2008
Thursday, November 13 at 6:30 p.m.
Stiteler Auditorium, Murphy Hall
Panel discussion featuring the participating artists and exhibition curator.
Opening Reception following immediately in the Art Gallery.
Arcadia is pleased to offer FREE ROUND-TRIP BUS TRANSPORTATION from Center City to Arcadia University Art Gallery on the evening of November 13, 2008. The chartered bus will depart from the front of Moore College at 5:30 p.m. and arrive at Arcadia University Art Gallery by approximately 6:15 p.m. Following the panel discussion and opening reception, the bus will depart Arcadia at 8:30 p.m. to return riders to the front of Moore College by approximately 9 p.m. To reserve a seat on this bus, please e-mail gallery assistant Jamar Nicholas (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone him at 215-572-2133. Reserve now as seats are limited.
"A Closer Look 7" continues a ongoing series initiated in 1995 to present in greater depth the work of selected artists who have preciously exhibited in Arcadia University Art Gallery's juried "Works on Paper" shows. The exhibition features recent work by Phillip Adams, James Johnson, Kocot & Hatton, Lucy Pullen, and Linda Yun, all of whom (with the exception of Pullen) currently live and work in Philadelphia.
Curated by Sheryl Conkelton, Director of Exhibitions and Special Programs at Tyler School of Art, the show builds on affinities between the selected bodies of work and projects-some of which have been realized expressly for this occasion. The seventh iteration of the series, this exhibition offers a speculative review of aesthetics that foregrounds perception in a range of material experience. "Each of these artists has developed a conceptual artistic practice that engages the material world and perceptual pleasure," Conkelton says, "using perception as a means of gesturing towards or modelling conceptual and theoretical spaces."
Phillip Adams' life-size charcoal portraits subtly complicate the viewer's relationship by replacing her with an imaginary reflected world. James Johnson expresses the ambivalence of the artistic position with a brightly lit but partially obscured construction. Kocot & Hatton present glowing hallucinations that record the moment of waking from sleep. Lucy Pullen's sculptures model invisible physics using simple shapes complicated by reflective surfaces. Linda Yun uses patently artificial materials to convey a natural phenomenon, crafting her representation through visual and aural rhythms.

The theme for the 2009 Members' Juried Exhibition at the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts engages the latitude, limits, and attitudes with which boundaries are either upheld or transgressed. Lines demarcate parameters, thresholds, borders, and territories, which in turn define the evolving notions of value systems such as nationalities and geopolitical or gender relations.
Crossing Lines can be about accidentally, deliberately, or serendipitously mixed signals in communication; paths crossing or colliding at an intersection; and the blurred, erased, or reinforced boundaries of time, place, tradition, and genre. Artists working in all media are encouraged to follow, trace, push, or cross the lines of this theme.

ARENA is based on Shetabi_s examination of live performance, crowds and public space. How does a performer inspire a crowd? Where does this energy come from? Where does it go?
Shetabi came across footage on YouTube of Freddy Mercury, Queen_s flamboyant and charismatic vocalist, and was intrigued by its connection to ideas being explored in the studio. At a 1985 Live Aid concert at Wembley Stadium, Mercury whips an adoring crowd into a frenzied and ecstatic state. The connection between the performer and audience is palpable. In a recent BBC poll, this performance was voted the greatest live performance ever.
In The Public Sphere, the viewer looks through a peephole lens installed in the gallery wall, and adopts the view that Freddy Mercury saw from the stage of Wembley Stadium in 1985. A vast, undulating crowd waits for the show to begin. The viewer, like Mercury, has become the focal point of the spectacle. Several small and intimate paintings depict Mercury at this performance, both before the crowd and in isolation.
Paintings of amplifiers and a large-scale painting of a drum set, shown up close, face off against a large image of soundproof foam. Ideas of amplification versus absorption come into play.
Forms associated with a sonic blast are painted in a quiet palette of grays. The objects are seemingly in a state of dormancy, waiting to be used. In Fog Machine, a stage and drum set are illuminated in spotlights, either awaiting the performers, or, empty after they have left.
Mark Shetabi is a Philadelphia-based artist who received his MFA in painting from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. He is a recipient of a 2002 Pew Fellowship in the Arts. This is Shetabi_s second solo exhibition with the gallery, and he has had previous solo exhibitions at Locks Gallery and Project Room, Philadelphia, and Ratio 3, San Francisco. His work has been included in numerous group exhibitions, including White Columns, New York, and the Hecksher Museum, Huntington. Shetabi currently has work on view in the group exhibition Empire and Its Discontents at Tufts University, Aidekman Arts Center, Boston.
