At a squint the inside looks like this:
Ben Fong- Torres= Former editor of Rolling Stone.

Carlos Donjuan=Culture and Subculture with a splash of colour.
Nathaniel Russell= Cosmic mysteries and connections.
Jamie Brett Treadwell= Cat meet dog.
Erik Parker= Visual soundtrack and snapshots of past experiences.
Parra= A late bloomer now a leader.
Joram Roukes= " I think the paintings steer but not dictate."

I tried asking the guy at the beer store once, if I could have a bunch of free beer for an art show and he just looked at me like I was an asshole."
Time to go in...
