oOo Ad Hoc Art Opening November 17th in Bellows Falls. oOo

New Exhibit Opening in Rockingham, Vermont in Bellows Falls

The public is invited to take part in welcoming a new art-based business to the Town of Rockingham Vermont by joining the official Grand Opening of Ad Hoc Art Gallery at 23 Canal Street in the Historic Downtown of Bellows Falls. The Grand Opening will be Friday, November 17th from 5:00 to 8:00pm rain or shine. Original artwork in many mediums will be displayed, and delectable refreshments will served

The Gallery is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11:00am to 4:00pm, and all other days by appointment.

The micro-coop space was formed by three local artists who needed a centralized and active location to create and share with a supportive community. They saw a need for a gallery in the town of Rockingham, located on the Great Falls of the Connecticut River in Windham County. The history of, and present population of people with creative energy and vision in this “city-center” of rural America was essential in opening a startup like the Gallery. The choice to be in Rockingham was made more obvious by its close proximity to the Northeast’s major urban centers, as well as the area’s opportunities to market to the region’s year-round visitors and neighbors’ alike.

There are many positive art-focused activities that are happening in town that the Gallery will compliment with original art to filling its walls.  Within this space the three original artists work together to administer all shows and programs in the Gallery.

Wow, what a shindig and anniversary celebration! The doors were indeed blown wide open and the familial freaks came out in full force. 

Luna Park was in full effect moving serious stacks at the launch of her first book, (UN) SANCTIONED: THE ART OF NEW YORK STREETS. This jewel shows some of the best action around through the eye and lens of one of graffiti and the street’s most respected photographers. You can buy it by clicking here!

“Heavy on New York artists, particularly her favorites and dear friends, the collection captures a splendid offering of the spine tingling pieces of ephemera one could stumble upon here in the last 11 years – if they did the hard work. Expertly collected and selected, this above all is a reflection of one personal journey.” – Brooklyn Street Art

We are honored to have written some words for it too.


The exhibition showcases the eclectic history of art in public spaces, from pre-graffiti to now, and the incredible talent that has come out of the streets and through AHA over the past decade; from old school legends to next level up-and-comers. 

While the exhibit was only viewable in the flesh for one weekend, it will be up online soon!

Participants Include: Alison Buxton, AVOID, Becky Fuller, Billy Mode, Caleb Neelon, Cash4, Cern, Chris RWK, Christopher Cardinale, Col Wallnuts, CRASH, Dan Witz, Daryll Peirce, Dave Loewenstein, Don Leicht, Elle, EpicUno, Ewelina Koszykowska, Ezra Li Eismont, Gaia, Garrison Buxton, Gigi Chen, Greg Lamarche, Halcyon Buxton, Hellbent, Icy & Sot, JC, J Corp, Jaime Rojo, Jenna Morello, Jennifer Caviola, Jennifer Harris, Joe Iurato, Joe Russo, John Ahearn, John Breiner, John Fekner, Jonathan Villoch, Jordan Seiler, Josh Macphee, Kevin Caplicki, Kimyon Huggins, Lady Pink, Lmnopi, LogikOne, Luna Park, Mike Fitzsimmons, Molly Crabapple, Nathan Pickett, Noh J Coley, Patrick Chirico, Peat Wollaeger, Peter Carroll, Praxis, Pufferella, Queen Andrea, RJ Rushmore, Ray Cross, Royce Bannon, Reid Harris Cooper, Ryan Seslow, Sam Horine, SeeOne, Sest2, Shiro, Sinned, Specter, Steve Harrington, Stikman, Subtexture, Swoon, Tod Seelie, Thundercut, TooFly, Veng RWK, Wane COD, YesOne & more.

oOo Burners Berning in the Bronx for Bernie! oOo













For immediate release


Graffiti artists paint for Bernie Sanders

Bronx, New York – Along the Major Deegan Expressway, in the shadow of Yankee Stadium, a small team of respected graffiti art veterans joined up to show their support for the Vermont senator and hopeful presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. The crowdfunded 120’ long x 3 stories high mural production was organized by Garrison Buxton and Alan Ket, and designed by Noah McDonough.

The diverse lineup of artists are: Garrison Buxton, Ces, DOC Tc5, Ewok One, John Fekner, Ket, Noah McDonough, Queen Andrea, Part One, Python, and Rath. The reason behind the art? “Bringing attention to Bernie Sanders during the New York primary so that he can win the nomination for the Democratic party. It is crucial to have a candidate that supports working people and is a voice of reason in this critical time in human history. Climate change, fossil fuels, and the destruction of the planet are but some of the issues he brings to light in a healthy and progressive manner,” states Alan Ket. “He is a once in a lifetime candidate and this is a once in a lifetime moment. Sanders has a lot of love and support coming his way and we wanted to show him in a big shout-out from the Bronx to all of NY and beyond.” voiced Garrison Buxton.

A huge thank you to everyone who helped make this happen. It was an honor and a pleasure to work with such a great crew and treat to see it come together, all in less than a week! Big love to the Bern!

An Art Event Celebrating the Streets, Solidarity, Community, and Culture

WHEN: Opening Saturday, June 14th, 2014; 12-8PM, then viewable 24/7/365! FB link to the event is here: 5th Annual Welling Court Mural Project

WHAT: The Welling Court Mural Project began in 2009 when Ad Hoc Art was invited by the community of Welling Court to slay some aesthetic blights in their neighborhood. The first project debuted in May 2010 with over 44 murals, fitting for the diverse and lively inhabitants. Each year since, spectacular crews of legendary and groundbreaking artists have come together to transform the neighborhood into a creative celebration and public art experience.

These renowned artists create site-specific works to provide new arrays of visual experiences which change how people experience and interact with their environment. This grassroots project has received remarkable appreciation as it brings art from around the world directly to the heart of this eclectic community, which grows more vibrant with each additional wall, creator, and enthusiast.

Artists Include: Abe Lincoln, Jr., AM, Alison Buxton, Beau Stanton, Billy Mode, Brian Life, Cake, Caleb Neelon, Cern, Cey Adams, Christopher Cardinale, Chris RWK, Chris Stain, Clown Soldier, Col Wallnuts, CRASH, Cycle, Dan Witz, Danielle Mastrion, Dennis McNett, Don Leicht, El Kamino, Ellis Gallagher, Free5, Fumero, Garrison Buxton, Gilf!, Greg Lamarche, Hellbent, Icy & Sot, Jamie Hef, Joe Iurato, John Breiner, John Carr, John Fekner, Katie Yamasaki, Kimyon Huggins, Lady Pink, Lmnopi, LogikOne, Mare139, Mensen, Mike Fitzimmons, Never, ND’A, Pablo Power, Peat Wollaeger, Queen Andrea, R.

This fifth round continues the project’s tradition of showcasing the artistry with the annual block party where the multi-talented hosts display their cultural culinary, music, and dance skills. While this tiny neighborhood provides some major ambience & hospitality, it cannot provide for all attendees, so think of this as a big picnic-potluck-art-fun-social and bring some of your favorite tasty foods, beverages, or other contributions to share.

If you would like to support this project, please email us and let us know how you would like to contribute. Always useful are: monetary contributions (which are tax deductible) as well as tools and materials like spray paint, bucket paint and primer, paint rollers/brushes/pans, ladders, scaffolding, etc.

Volunteers Are Always Welcomed and Encouraged!
If you would like to help out, there are many ways to get involved. We appreciate and need your assistance to make this as amazing as possible. Some areas of interest: videography, social media/outreach, press/PR, PA, on-site support, manning greeting locations & looking after residents, artists, and attendees.
To volunteer, email us at

* In addition to the murals and festivities, there are special events and projects happening throughout the day, such as:

– Art activities taught by participating artists.

– Music from the eclectic AtotheK & Sleptember, and more of our favorite DJ’s blending sublime block party beats to massage your eardrums and keep you moving. Bring food, water, and things to share with your creative comrades while experiencing stupendous art & aural delights.

2nd Opening is Saturday, May 14th, 7-11pm for 2nd Saturday ArtWalk



AD HOC ART presents a stunning and eclectic group exhibition, “I have a dream, I have a nightmare: Friday the 13th…”

An electric charge of vast consciousnesses, expression, and neural synapses connects and seeps into Los Angeles’ New Puppy LA located at 2808 Elm Street, Los Angeles CA 90065.

We are living in very fascinating and unprecedented times on the cusp of something, undoubtedly.   What that “something” is, exactly, is not clear.  That we have are in the thick of it is palpable.  Is what lies on the other side beautiful or horrendous?  Sustainable or cataclysmic?  Truthful or deceptive?  Just or fraudulent?  The verdict is out.  We all play a role and help guide the sweet unraveling that is to come.

Around the world, energies are coming together, allegiances are forming, and the future is so bright we gotta wear shades.  Is the blinding light from the shining smiles of a just and humane democratic existence that gives us life or is it from the glistening bomb blast dropped a sociopathic ceo/politico determined to take all or nothing?

Dreams, nightmares and Friday the 13th energies have been channeled, harnessed and will be unleashed this 13th of May in the City of Angels. Check out these visual nuggets and then help us forge the future. Be prepared to be lovingly horrified as artists from around planet earth share their visions with you, glimpsing through the art and minds slipping swimmingly through the realms of the real and imaginary.  Exhibition runs through June 18th, 2011.

Artists include:

Beau Stanton
Bill Fick
Broken Crow
Bunnie Reiss & Ezra Li Eismont
Chor Boogie
Chris Stain
Dabs Myla and Greg “Craola” Simkins
Daryll Peirce
David Loewenstein
Garrison & Alison Buxton
Joe Iurato
John Breiner
John Carr
John Fekner & Don Leicht
