The Backspace

Dead Men Tell No Tales
by Adam DeVarney
July 1 - July 30

Opening Reception: First Friday July 1, 5-9pm
DeVarney delves into the heart and soul of fighter pilots past, and lost voyagers of space and time. Vagabonds of the great beyond, these haunting characters search for love, lust, and revenge. Traveling up from an exhibit in Manhattan, this series portrays a collection of weary and weathered ghosts of aviation by a South End, Burlington artist.
The Backspace is pleased to showcase this series of work, with an additional new series of limited edition prints by the artist through the month of July.
