Pulled that piece of gold right out of the neighbors trash. That’s right, the first years of our poor mans marriage was spent on a full sized mattress dumpster dive grade. Ignorance is bliss as all those years we had no clue what we were missing. Our minds were blown the day we finally purchased our first brand new queen perfectly firm, just enough plush. Take it from me, a good mattress is worth the investment.
In the world of Wade Guyton and Kelley Walker any mattress is worth the investment when it is a work of art. Rows of mattresses are stood upright to show off a unique collection of paintings by use of ink jet printer and scanner.  The boys have been busy whisking in design combinations like no other. Similar to a glitch in the system this art makes no apologies interrupting cuts of fruit with graphic patterns, putting the pause button on an image to give us new perspectives. Their presence leads us in a trance to a state of hypnosis.

Wade Guyton and Kelley’ Walker’s work was recently shown at Kunsthaus Bregenz

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
