Natural Selection: When Art and Darwinism Collide
A One-Night Only Exhibit Hosted by Tom Sale Benefiting Rhino Conservation

Thursday, May 22, 2008
5:30-9:30 PM

Gray Matters Gallery !!!!! (YAY)
113 N. Haskell Ave.
Dallas, TX 75226

Entry donation $5 (all money collected goes to Dallas AAZK)

Zoo keeper and local artist, Tom Sale, is hosting a one-night benefit art
exhibit featuring art by his alter-ego, Pinky Diablo, Ken Craft and the
artistic duo known as The Tom and Judy Show. Tom and Pinky are raising money
for the Dallas chapter of the American Association of Zoo Keepers and their
Annual Bowling for Rhinos fundraiser.

Works include preliminary studies by Ken Craft for a series of painting
about Charles Darwin (of course, Pinky Diablo was the model for Darwin.)
Ken has graciously agreed to show original drawings and watercolors (even
before this fabulous series is completed). Prints of these studies will also
be available.

Judy Vetter, fabric artist extraordinaire, has teamed with her studio
assistant, Pinky Diablo, to create a line of fabric art based on animal and
zoo themes. Their collaborative work is exhibited nation-wide under the
moniker The Tom and Judy Show.

In his spare time, Pinky writes stories. Lots of them. Trilobite Press in
Denton, Texas has produced one of them in a chapbook entitled The Sad and
Lovely Life of Mr. Loomis. Signed copies of this book will be given to folks
who donate $10 or more.

Please come out, have a beer, see some art, and visit hosts Tom Sale, Pinky
Diablo, Ken Craft, Judy Vetter, and the ubiquitous Zebu Queen, Miss Love.

(A false rumor is being spread that Pinky will be performing an excerpt from
his upcoming opera at this event. When could Pinky possibly find time to
write an opera?)
