Cutting a wide swath across various niches of Philadelphia’s DIY community and art scene, the Philly Punx Picnic event group recently hosted a media and arts showcase at the now legendary Tattooed Mom restaurant and bar on South St. The 2nd floor of Mom’s was transformed into a gallery of paintings, prints, clothing, records, pictures, literature, pins, patches, and scores of other unique and rare items in distro fashion. We do not have a full listing of artists, but feel free to send us one here.
A few artists we did recognize included John Baizley of Baroness, who was displaying several pieces of mixed media from his aperfectmonster line of works. This being one of the larger and multifacited displays of evening. Blow The Scene’s own Senior Staff Photographer, Dante Torrieri had several unique prints on hand. He selected a handful of choice pictures to be printed on metal sheets in a special printing process that brings new life to already great work. Clones / Fashions, Black Mess Records, an others had great displays. As we zipped around Tattooed Mom‘s upstairs we found seas of interesting works to capture in stills.
Enjoy a large of collection of photos of the event’s proceedings by Joshua T. Cohen.
