A Gathering of the Tribes

Hey again bloggers, and in my lack of things to blah blog about in my blogaholicness when encountering that blaghers block, I find myself blaghing about art music, poetry, and events again since I seem to be on a roll or something in posting about art events this past week or so. And so along comes May Day, that workers of the world unite of a holy holiday day. And Steve Cannon’s Tribes Gallery, that cool creative and cultural building to be found in that neighborhood of the Lower East Side, now called the East Village for real estate marketing purposes maybe, will be one of the many venues having a May Day event on May 1st. And I know A Gathering of the Tribes Gallery will be having a Starter Kit for Collectors, Art Exhibition and Sale Benefit May 1st through the 16th because that email with that poster that one of their participating visual artist sent me says so. And so that poster from that email I received the other day reads something like as follows:
