i just got this message from Ann Magnuson:

"I will be the guest curator at the CUE Art Foundation (in New York City's fabulous Chelsea art district!) for the month of December.

The artist on display is PHRANC, known to many as "The Jewish Lesbian Folk Singer" and Tupperware Lady Extraordinaire. Phranc also makes art and she will display her latest creations in whimsical 3-D direct from her Cardboard Cobbler's Workship here in L.A.

The big opening is Dec. 6 and we will also have a folk song hootenanny on Dec. 7 featuring performances from both myself and Phranc (and YOU TOO! As we ask you sing along around the campfire!) You will get a more detailed invite in a few weeks but wanted you to SAVE THE DATE now!

And read more about Phranc and the show in my L.A. Woman column in the December issue of PAPER!"

BUMPIN coz the first event starts tomorrow!

& a new message from Ann:

Hello all you wonderful New Yorkers!

I am so happy to report that the flu I had for one terrifying week has abated and I will be winging my way east to support PHRANC at her first New York solo art show at the CUE Foundation gallery in fabulous Chelsea! CUE asked me to be one of their two guest curators for the month of December and I could think of no better artist to invite than PHRANC!

What? You didn't know she made art?

See the fabulous and whimsical and socially relevant 3-D art from the Carboard Cobbler, a.k.a. The Jewish Lesbian Folk Singer, a.k.a Tupperware Lady Legend, a.k.a All Around Great Gal! (You can also read all about Phranc and her art in my L.A. Woman column in the December issue of PAPER!)

CUE is at 511 West 25th Street on the ground floor. (Phone 212-206-2583)
www.cueartfoundation.org

The opening is this Thursday from 6-8.
A free Performance/Hootenanny with both myself and Phranc will occur the following evening on Friday December 7 beginning at 6:30.

Don't miss it! Hope to see everyone there (or somewhere else on the isle of Manhattan during my stay!) xoxo, ann m

Folk Songs with Ann and Phranc: Songs That Speak to Now and Then

Ann Magnuson and Phranc put the Hoot in Hootenanny as they share the
stage -and one acoustic guitar- performing classic tunes of their own making.

Why waste money feeding the big-money art conglomorates at the Miami Basel Art Fair when you can stay in New York and GET REAL with three chords and the truth! Say goodbye to overpriced Cosmopolitans, deep-fried goat cheese canapes and $900-a-night hotel rooms and stick it to The Man while roasting marshmellows around our cracklin', flame-retardant campfire!

First 50 people arriving in denim will recieve free s'mores!!!

Kick off those painful high heels and pull up a flannel blanket in a safe, Kumbaya-free zone as Ann and Phranc serenade you with songs from their respective ouevres. Ghost stories! Protest songs! Odes to Billy Joes and Woody Guthrie sing-a-longs brought to you in one life-lovin' jamboree!

Don't resist! You know you've strayed too long. Throw off the shackles of those status-whipped, luxury-porn desires fueled by our inane, war-denying celebrity culture and get back down to basics with Phranc and Ann. And sing. Sing a song.

Folk music.

For just plain folks.

Who know deep down they are very, very special.

Because they live in New York City.

In other words - YOU!

Even if you are just visiting from out of town.

Be There.
