Some gems from the first IPAS

Thanks to Ken Mcmillan for sending me these images from the first IPAS. Sue Burdan's still lifes that started the whole idea. Leslie Robison's "Presidential Chips" that Tommy Lee from Bulls Hit Ranch bought the day of the show, Ken Mcmillan's "Pete's Adventure" and Rama Malone's shepards pie. She had extra potatoes and parts so folks could make their own potato sheep.

Mario Sevayega at the 2nd annual IPAS

We were lucky enough to have Mario Sevayega who played the 2009 Harvest of Hope Festival at the St. John's County Fairgrounds come to the 2nd annual IPAS and play a set. He sounded great and we got one song on video. Thanks to my friend Sarah for taking video of Mario's performance. Thanks to Phil Kellerman (front row) of the Harvest of Hope Foundation for bringing Mario out to play the IPAS. For more information about his music visit

2nd Annual Potato Art Show Pictures

The 2nd Annual Show was a big success. Dr.Chad Hutchison's lecture about potatoes, great potato-based art, food served by Warriors(HYAC) football players and live music made for another really cool event at Johnny's Kitchen. Big thanks to my buddy Christian who was visiting from Chicago with his wife and son who helped me hang the show the night before.(It's hard to get into a busy restaurant like Johnny's and do a complete re-installation of all the artwork).
Leslie Robison's video of a woman who lost her arms in a tragic stone carving accident and found her new medium to be potatoes and Theresa Lawrence's Village Potatoes were crowd favorites
