Artist to give encore performance Tuesday at Adams Art Gallery

November 17, 2012
The OBSERVER

On view through Tuesday at Dunkirk's Adams Art Gallery is critically acclaimed performance artist Abraham Ferraro's mid-career survey "Occupational Hazard: Pencil Pusher Pushing Pencils." It's the most comprehensive presentation to date of work by this remarkable artist. The "Pencil Pusher" portion itself is an interactive performance that integrates the production of art with the business of art. Ferraro has created a one-of-a-kind 18-foot-tall pencil which he uses as his place of business to demonstrate and create a full "day's work." Ferraro begins his work day like millions of people all around the world, but the work itself occurring within the giant pencil structure is at the very least, astonishing.
