Joyce Pensato opened a stunning solo show, "This Must Be The Place", at Parker's Box on October 20. I've often said it before, but I still can't even begin to undestand why Pensato is not more widely known and more higly prized than she is. I'd stand in line for this installation, but instead Barry and I were given a surprise private tour by the artist herself when we stopped by the gallery on the afternoon after the opening.

Unfortunately I was so distracted that I neglected to pick up a checklist while I was there. I found information on the gallery site, but one of these images will therefore have to remain pretty much unidentified for now, but like his strange friends this off-Donald seems to be able to speak very well for himself.
