LXII.

TO EQUITY.

O Blessed Equity, mankind’s delight,
Th’ eternal friend of conduct just and right:
Abundant, venerable, honor’d maid,
To judgments pure, dispensing constant aid,

A stable conscience, and an upright mind;
For men unjust, by thee are undermin’d,
Whose souls perverse thy bondage ne’er desire,
But more untam’d decline thy scourges dire:
Harmonious, friendly power, averse to strife,
In peace rejoicing, and a stable life;
Lovely, loquacious, of a gentle mind,
Hating excess, to equal deeds inclin’d:
Wisdom, and virtue of whate’er degree,
Receive their proper bound alone in thee.
Hear, Goddess Equity, the deeds destroy
Of evil men, which human life annoy;
That all may yield to thee of mortal birth,
Whether supported by the fruits of earth,
Or in her kindly fertile bosom found,
or in the depths of Marine Jove profound.

— Hymns of Orpheus

Pop Époque Tour Program

On April 19, 2014, in Art Events, by squirt

Pop Époque – The Serigraphs of Chuck Sperry – Made in California

Last summer at the end of Chuck Sperry’s “Flowers of Popular Victories” Tour in Italy, he stopped in Paris to meet Magali Bru, owner of l’Oeil Ouvert Gallery. Sperry and Bru hatched a plan for a show in June 2014, with a small introductory show to happen at l’Oeil Ouvert in Paris, running from October to November of 2013. Well, the introductory show was such a smashing success that all the posters Chuck left to Magali were soon sold, more posters were sent to Paris, and Sperry’s “introduction” was extended to January 1, 2014. In February, the French Government, quite unexpectedly, included about a dozen Sperry posters in large well-atteneded overview of world-class graphic art at Les Docks in Paris. There was another wave of inquiries at l’Oeil Ouvert for Sperry’s posters and more press and television bringing attention to his art in France.
