Robin Crutchfield: As a performance artist/writer/musician in the 1970s, Robin found critical acclaim as part of the No Wave movement with bands DNA and Dark Day transitioning into solo work with trancelike harp and drone. He continued his creative pursuits in various arenas, including recent endeavors exploring the use of cotton crochet slipstitch methods. His whimsy includes pointy hats, dolls, and colorful catch-call bags. Also, some of his music CDS and books-”Eleven Faerie Tales” and “A,B,C, Desire” an erotic alphabet, will be available. Perhaps even some handwhittled wands.
