Hotchkiss Grouping

Robin HotchkissRobin Hotchkiss died yesterday after a prolonged illness. She was an artist of marvelous wit, the owner of the Salon Des Amis Gallery in Malvern, PA, and a good friend to many local artists, including many members of the Philadelphia Dumpster Divers, myself included. Here’s just a few of her many works, which my wife, Betsy Alexander, and I feel honored to have in our collection.

A Steller Discovery!!

by Burnell Yow! on May 10, 2015 · 0 comments


What is Steller, you ask? It’s an iPhone app that allows you to create stories combining photos, text and video. The finished story can be viewed either online or with the Steller app. It’s a free download.

To date, I have created 23 stories featuring mostly my art. There’s one about my studio cat, Rennie. And one about the most famous of our cat colony, Nora The Piano Cat. I think you’ll like them. Check them out at

If you like, share and comment. But most of all just enjoy!

April 10, 2015

Turning 64 hurts. Well, at least it did for the 20 or so minutes it took for Kate Collins of No Ka Oi ┬áTiki Tattoo in Philadelphia to emblazon my inner forearm with my slogan “There are no rules, only materials.” The new tattoo, my second, was a birthday gift from my wife, Betsy Alexander. […]
