A Special Wow to the folks who were lucky enough to catch Lucky the Painproof Man's performance and sideshow artwork. Words can't describe it. If you would like to see the closing performance and party it is on Saturday, August 30th at 6 pm. Lucky will once again perform his otherworldly antics at 7:30 pm. Of course, it's free, but Lucky will have his shrunken heads, circus knockdown punks, sideshow banners, freak photography and many things that defy description for sale.

#2 Hellbent Hellion, An Exhibition of recent art by Nat Sept 5th and 6th, from 6pm-11pm Special guest performance on Sept 5th by Andrew "The Impaled". Sideshow Marvel

Nat is not your average chick. Most of her childhood was spent watching her father and uncles wrenching on cars in the garage... and she really enjoyed it. That had a huge impact on who she is today. "I wanted to be a mechanic, but Dad wouldn't let me. He wanted me to pursue a career in art. So, since I couldn't work on cars, I started to draw them".

If you go looking for hidden messages or meanings in her art, you are looking too deep. "People get so wrapped up in politics, religion, current issue and emotions and it bores me to death! My art is just simply...something to look at." Her subject matter usually consists of hot rods, tiki, tattoo art, pin-ups or vintage graphics.Nat and her husband, Chris, own Sign Works, a sign shop located in Lawrenceville where she is a Sign Designer. Most of her art is created using leftover sign materials.
