Art imitates life imitates art imitates life

A couple years ago, I gave my friend and fellow artist, Anthony Morgan, a collage inspired by Kurt Vonnegut's "Slaughterhouse 5". He placed it prominently in the Black Gryphon, a restaurant that he owns in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania. This week, a fire broke out at the restaurant. Although fortunately no one was hurt, a variety of artworks were lost in the fire and heat and smoke (including artwork of Donna Durr, St. Bradford Brooks, and Anthony Morgan). Here is the residue that was left of my collage. Ironic that a Slaughterhouse 5 collage was destroyed in a fire. So it goes...


  1. Not so merry a Christmas for your friend. Still we hope for a fabulous 2017...for you and all your friends.

  2. Same to you Jo! It's difficult to be optimistic with our recent elections. But we shall try.
