BTW - Philadelphia First Friday's

Philadelphia's First Friday's are much more exciting than DC's rounds of gallery walks and openings. Tons of people are on the street, in the galleries and restaurants. Artists, performers and musicians engage in an informal, open air market along the main streets to take advantage of the exposure opportunity. I noticed a few artists with brisk sales and decided to give it a whirl myself. After getting the ins and outs and other particulars on set up, I headed to Philly for September's First Friday. I got there much later than expected because of holiday traffic. It took a while for me to park, find a clean restroom, find a spot to set up then go back to the car and haul my stuff to the spot. If you're considering it yourself, two is way better than one. Take someone to help with hauling and customers. I finally set up near a theater on 2nd St. a little after eight. Sales during my hour or so on the street were better than studio sales in a good month. It was definitely worth my while so expect to see me as a frequent First Friday's fixture.

Wayne TrappWayne Trapp
Abstract Paintings & Monumental Sculpture
October 21 - November 27, 2005

Opening Events to Meet the Artist:
Friday, October 21, 6-9pm
Saturday, October 22, 1-4pm

Wayne Trapp the sculptor has worked in stone and steel for years, creating lavish outdoor pieces for corporate clients and smaller more intimate pieces for private clientele. His hands and his shoulders are sore, sensitive, and scarred from sculpting, but he can no more give it up than he can give up breathing. If a fine piece of stone presents itself, if a flash of metal catches his eye or a woman turns her head just so, if the moon is right, well... the dance begins.

The painter emerged full-blown from the stone carver. He took what he could not say in bronze and marble and let it loose with oil and ink on canvas and paper. His oils deliver a feast of color, strokes saturated with childlike curiosity and adult confidence. Not for the meek, nor the abstinent, his work aims at the alive and well, begging appetite, thirst, and desire.

With unbridled energy and an insatiable passion for everything that crosses his path, Trapp forever seeks interchange, new ground, and a good time.

Wayne Trapp is one of the premiere contemporary sculptors working today. He specializes in large outdoor metal sculptures that can be seen at museums, hospitals, parks, university campuses and corporations nationwide.
