  1. Wonderful preview of the bicycle-themed art objects for the auction tomorrow night. Especially liked Troy Neiman’s ever so clever/crafted large two/half foot bi-plane and his jackson chameleon, plus others. Don’t miss the mysterious “Infinity stone” by Mark Doumas, a sphere made of chain links with a colorful ball of light inside. And Eric Bang (on stilts tonight) is back again with his well done lamps of bicycle parts.
