Remembering Earl

There's an article in today's Times Union about the late outsider artist Earl Swanigan and the growing value of his work: "From $5 to $1,500: Hudson folk artist finds auction success."

This picture of Swanigan, which is included in the article, was taken by Gossips in June 2010, at the opening of the exhibition Local Self Portraits at the Hudson Opera House. His was the first self-portrait in the show to be sold--even before the opening reception began.
