Barry Stone, “Porch Swing Orchestra,” at Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery:
Yall, this is my first solo show with all work drawn from PSO. There are past PSO pieces printed and framed IRL, images made from mixes of those images directly adhered to the wall, a new sound piece, AND if that weren't enough, a new special lathe-cut record featuring new and unreleased extended pieces created this spring in WEST TEXAS.
