Ben Robinson a short order cook by day at Say Cheese Philly and a freelance artist by night. He received his AFA from Montgomery County Community College, and just recently (May, 2013) a
BFA from UARTS. He produces a broad range of artwork ranging from doodle inspired ink drawings to psychological paintings that are heavily influenced by surrealism and abstraction. A common theme in Ben's work tends to deal with the relationship between contradictions and how they
simultaneously affect and defect scenarios. He executes this idea through contrasting colors, shapes, composition, objects, etc.. Ben started out his painting career doing more rendered paintings and
character driven compositions with a surreal edge to them. Recently, he's loosened up his painting technique and have been experimenting with abstraction ever since. Ben Robinson is influenced by
skateboarding, music and graffiti mostly but he's been discovering new influences in things like architecture, social issues, and people in general. Ben says"There's always new influences to be
discovered so I try to remain open and be aware of my surroundings while painting and in every day life".

Luckydog Essentia and Curios is operated out of Royersford, PA by Katie Lightcap, owner and entrepreneur, and Jason Peterson, co-owner and head of order fulfillment. We upcycle, repurpose, refinish and recycle! We hate throwing things away. Period.
I, Katie, majored in Graphic Design and Fine Art, and specialize in making useful arts and crafts that can be incorporated into everyday life. I almost never make the same thing twice and my favorite medium is collage and decoupage. I also make all of the soaps and scrubs.
Jason manages inventory, online sales and designs and builds almost all of the tile coasters and all of the tile tables. We both also have full time jobs, but are very proud to be able to say that in the past year Luckydog has improved and grown to full blown part time jobs for both of us.
For this year's Fun A Day, I will be making at least one art tile each day, using mixed media to create clever and humorous fully functional coasters. We will display these along with our normal tile inventory and everything will be available for purchase at the show.

We are about halfway through the Fun A Day month, I hope everyone is doing well with their projects and having lots of fun. I wanted to letparticipating artists know about set up and show details. The show will be at 7pm at the 3rd and Walnut ( 53w 3rd st Lansdale PA). Set up will be from 2-5pm that Friday. You can either have a table or rack space. If you are using a table make sure to bring a table cloth. If you are going to hang your work make sure you have an idea of how you are going to hang it. I will have some binder clips and pegs.We will be taking the show down that night after the show. Feel free to sell your work, no commissions will be taken. I'm asking for a contribution of artwork to the auction. If you could hand out fliers and invite people to the show that would be a great help as well. If you have any questions let me know. No registration is required, just show up and have fun.
