Preparations Enter Final Stretch

While we may not have posted very much here over the past few days, that doesn't mean that nothing is going on.

On the contrary, things have been busy recently.
On a positive note, the folks at MilkBoy are doing their best to reopen the Ardmore cafe by September 7th. Everyone is crossing their fingers and hoping for the best. We'll update as soon as we know the final word.

Also there should be an article on the show appearing in next week's Philadelphia City Paper, so keep an eye out for it.

Much of last weekend was spent unpacking 10 boxes of fresh frames, and matting and framing our prints. It was a large undertaking but well worth the effort. The prints look amazing, and are going to look great on the walls.

We also received more prints, which I will post up here shortly. Some really great work from Philly artists Sutter and Patrick Theaker, and from Bjorn and Peter of BRLSQ.

Finally, we've also been getting a lot of questions on where these prints will be available. The first opportunity to buy the prints will be at the opening night receptions (Sept. 6 at Mugshots, and Sept. 7 at MilkBoy). Every poster will be made available on both nights. After that, posters will be available online at our Etsy store, All posters will be available there, except Jay Ryan's print. Due to high levels of expressed interest, these will be sold separately.

On Saturday, September 8, at 2PM Eastern, email The subject of the email should be Jay Ryan Print, and in the body of the email please put your full name. The first 15 people (or however many prints there are left, we will let you know how many are available before 2PM), will be contacted by the end of the day with directions to purchasing the print. These will be limited to one per customer on-line and will be $100+shipping.

We hope to see a lot of people at the shows next week, and don't forget, we're always looking for more riders to join the Screens 'N' Spokes bike team in the MS150.

Venue Update: Milkboy Coffee Floods

Unfortunately, late last week, Milkboy Coffee in Ardmore was flooded when a sprinkler pipe in the offices upstairs burst. Thankfully no one was injured, but it will likely take a few weeks for everything to dry out and be replaced.

We'll learn more in the next couple days, but we will likely be unable to have our opening night in Ardmore on Friday Sept. 7. Instead, we will have the Friday opening night at the smaller but equally cool Milkboy Coffee in Bryn Mawr, right next to the Bryn Mawr Film Institute:

Friday, September 7th, 6:30 PM
Milkboy Coffee
824 Lancaster Ave.
Bryn Mawr PA

We don't know what this means for the benefit concert we were also scheduling as part of the opening night reception. But we'll update this site as soon as we know

Screens 'N' Spokes: The Cricket Press

Lexington, Kentucky's own Cricket Press loves bicycles--you can see the motif pop up in many of their prints. And I think it's evident in their Screens 'N' Spokes entry:

Artist Contributions

In order to get the great list of artists for Screens 'N' Spokes, we had to contact a lot of people. Many artists were interested in contributing, but didn't have the time to create and print a unique piece for the show.

Some of these artists have kindly donated existing posters to be sold, or auctioned at our opening night events. I'm pleased to say we'll have some beautiful posters from :

Rob Jones
Jon Smith
Diana Sudyka
Dan McCarthy

I will post a complete inventory when I have received all the prints.
