Shannon Whalen, whose "Barbara Streisand" and "Bacon & Eggs" buttons were a huge hit last show, is a featured artist this month. Asked what inspires her art, she replies, "Jesus is usually around. My powers come from deep within the stone".

Lee Stringle has been up for days working on a new, large scale abstract painting for the event. "I can't even see whats good anymore" he says.

Both Mike Juneau and Dean Tzenos will be doubling as artists and musicians. Dean, as one half of the duo known as Dr. Jesus and Mike under the assumed identity: Powerbomb.

Filmmaker Jesse Ewles, will play his video for Wax Mannequin, the night's musical headliner. Asked about re-ocuring themes in his work, Jesse says: "Monsters and subtly disguised genitals seem to be the tie that binds; however, making props from thrift-store garbage will probably define me".

Exhibiting photographer Dan Novisedlak, has asked me to pass on his attempt to buy the affections of the viewing public: "Mention this article and I will take your portrait".

Picture This has been an increasing success over the past few months. All the artists involved are anxious to show off new work and mingle with the crowd. Come by and get lavished with a little creative pre-valentine's day affection.
