We're excited to announce that it is time again for our annual alphabet of oddball animal show by Peter Koronakos.

This year the title is Arctic Wolf to Zigzag Spider: An Alphabet of Oddball Animals 2022 and features all new animals that follow the 26 letters of the alphabet. All letters of the alphabet will be represented and you can find them all through the self-guided treasure hunt!

In case you don't know about the wonderful work of Peter Koronakos, here is little background. The stuff and junk we produce and use speaks to him--"The twist of wire in the street, the debris left over from a house remodel, the plastic toy found in the dirt, the .38's found in my grandmother's sewing basket, the paper and photos and rusted steel and old machine parts, the wooden spoon from the flea market, the fragments of safety glass in the parking lot of, the bits of washed up and worn smooth junk on the beach-all speak to me. I am attracted to the history they embody, the patterns of wear and use, the evidence of being part of someone's life. I find and gather and collect all manner of materials and use them in assemblage pieces, sculptures, mixed-media constructions."
