Short Press Blurb:

Interested in seeing an international art phenomenon? Then you will want to visit Willo North Gallery on May 6th for First Friday, 6 – 10 p.m. The exhibit, A Book About Death ~ Memento (ABAD), is brought to you by Phoenix based artist Patricia Sahertian and incorporates personal notions, feelings and expressions of death on postcards sent by artists world-wide. This is but one of the over twenty exhibitions started by Paris based artist Matthew Rose in New York City with subsequent shows in Wales, Italy, South Carolina, Texas, Belgium, Brazil, Long Island and more.

Sahertian’s postcard is based on Air Force veteran John S. Turner who was buried on New York City’s  Hart Island, the world’s largest potter’s field (see video below). There will be a special section of the gallery with John’s mementos and his sister Julie Lantz will be attending.
