Welcome to Otis Street!
We want to thank everyone for their support of Otis Street Arts Project. Thanks for visiting us, sharing our news and telling everyone about us. (If this is the first you're hearing of us, you are receiving this because of your previous interaction with either Sean Hennessey or David Mordini, the Co-Founders of Otis Street Arts Project)
Our next event, and the subject of our first newsletter is the Artist Talk and Closing Reception for our very first exhibit. We were honored to host, live, and work with the fantastic art of Cory Oberndorfer and Jeff Huntington. As our inaugural exhibit coincided with our Grand Opening, we didn't host a proper reception for these artists. Please join us for a reception for the closing of this show. The artists will share with us their thoughts on their work and be available for questions.

m.l.duffy was born on Long Island, New York, a few hours after the winter solstice, on December 22nd, 1978. m.l.duffy died on the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico at the sunrise of the winter solstice on December 21st, 2012. (With the rest of the world.) If not, -duh!- then he will probably live with his wife and children in a large, cultured city until he is shot in the chest by someone modern civilization had ignored up until that point.

Scott G Brooks
Scott G Brooks lives and works in Washington, DC. His paintings are primarily figurative, and range from simple portraiture to intricate narratives. Often using humor, he depicts scenes using social, psychological, and political issues. Anatomical distortions separate the figures from the photographic ideal, which gives him the freedom to create his own distorted reality. His work is described as twisted and offbeat, sentimental, and disturbing.
