Come celebrate the whimsical art of Sharri Phillips! “The world of the carny, the gypsy, the fairy, the whirling dancer – these are the places Sharri Phillips explores in her art. Working with fabric, paint and paper mache, Phillips creates works of art filled with her vibrant dreams, memories from her childhood and a dark mystery. ‘I am very drawn towards whimsical and magical themes,’ she said.” (Excerpt courtesy of xeniagazette.com compiled by Whitney Vickers)
Sharri Phillips was recently awarded the Lee Miller People’s Choice Award for her piece entitled “Fairy Dollhouse” in the 71st Annual Members’ Juried Exhibition at the Springfield Museum of Art where she will be showcasing her art again in April 2018.

He was a founding member of art-collective the Mekons, one of the longest-running and most prolific bands from the first wave of British punk.

The Mekons have released 20 albums since 1979, and the band is featured in a 2014 documentary, Revenge of the Mekons, directed by Joe Angio. The Mekons’ most recent album is a book-and-CD package called Existentialism. Langford records and performs as Jon Langford and Skull Orchard, and is a member of the Waco Brothers and the Pine Valley Cosmonauts (in Chicago) and Jon Langford’s Men of Gwent and The Three Johns (England and Wales).
