Kidnapped Spider

Have you seen this spider around?

Yesterday, Rabi found this ransom note attached to a can of Raid: Wasp & Hornet Killer.

Although he abided by the directions yesterday, we still don't have the spider back on the wall of the Q.arma Building. Rabi stopped at the Diamonds Coffee Shoppe after noon today and saw that the ransom money was still taped to the trashcan lid. The folks at Diamonds didn't know why they were the drop spot.

Give us a buzz if you see the spider around. Obviously we're hoping the Wasp & Hornet Killer doesn't work on spiders and that this prank ends well with the safe return of the sculpture.

Movies, Brats and a Bonfire
Weather permitting. The lights go down, the film starts up. We’ll of course be showing Barnstormers, a delightful short film showing many artists painting on the side of an old barn, and a few others!

Rabi will also have work at the
Frank Stone Gallery all weekend long, and a piece at the NEMAA Silent Auction.
