Artist Spotlight 4: Tory Stolen, Dave Lethcoe and Eli Show
And now please give and almost overly enthusiastic welcome to Eli, Tory and Dave. All three are BFA alumni from the University of South Dakota. All three are members of the band We All Have Hooks For Hands. All three had ponytails with cat scratches as grade schoolers and didn't even know each other.
If you live in Sioux Falls and haven't heard of these guys you must be living under an old piece of sheet metal which covers a small hole in the ground in which there are no shelves.
Need I say anymore? Probably not.

Eli will be working on a screen printing project, perhaps involving other media. David will be making a mixed media sculpture requiring the use of power tools and
Tory will be doing some sort of interesting photographic transfer mixed media work.
New to Take the day., these guys will add greatly to the dynamic of the group. I am immensely gladdened by their involvement.
