For the past 3 weeks we've been helping Duke Riley re-build the Dead Horse Inn. Guests were dropped off on the edge of the Belt parkway and led through the woods to the tavern to partake in drinks for a nickel, steamed mussels, boxing and the usual hijinx. Below are some snapshots of the build-out and set up. Here is what Duke has to say about it:

Well... yesterday I severed the final tie in my relationship with Priska Juschka Fine Art. Kitty Joe and I filled an 18' box truck with my work and distributed it between the drawing studio and a warehouse in Linden, New Jersey. After more than a year of feeling like I didn't fit with her stable of artists and being frustrated with the relationship, I was seriously considering moving on. Then, after I found out about the gallery's situation with Dana Melamed, I realized that I would be an asshole if I didn't leave. Too shady for my blood, not to mention confirmed suspicions. So... here we are, released from the dead weight and ready to try my hand at being a free agent. It's a good feeling.
