last year dave and i went to a first friday and saw an artist (gregory prestegord ) that we both REALLY liked. we had been wanting to buy something, but never got around to it. i went to first friday in april and stopped at F.A.N. art gallery. as luck would have it, he was having another show, so we bought one of his amazing paintings. his paintings really capture philly, with all it's imperfections and grit and grime.
