LIFE ON THE LEFT BANK: ART GALLERY BLUES

Peter Paul Payack, LIFE ON THE LEFT BANK: Art Gallery Blues

This is a sad story, and unfortunately not that uncommon in Cambridge. I’ll miss checking out what’s new in the Out of the Blue windows as I walk down Prospect Street almost daily. I’m glad to hear the gallery is pursuing a new location in the city though! You can read more about this story here and/or donate to keep Out of the Blue alive here.

You can shoot me cartoon ideas by email (peterpaulpayack@yahoo.com) or by tweet (@PPPayack). Visit peterpaulpayack.com to see more work!
