The Modbo Goes on Hiatus

I’m sorry to say that I’ve decided to close temporarily due to COVID. My current plan is to open in February, but it’s of course impossible to promise. For me, the beauty of The Modbo lies in the interaction between the patrons and the artists, the patrons and the art, the art and the artists, etc. Online is a paltry facsimile for that model of art experience, and I’m frankly not up for a foray into that realm. This means that Small Works is unfortunately not happening this year. It would be a social distancing nightmare. I’m sure it’s possible, somehow, but it boggles the mind. Those of you who have experienced intake or opening night can imagine what I’m talking about here. Also, sales for Small Works have declined in the past few years, leading me to wonder about its ongoing relevancy and if it is still a worthwhile endeavor. I’ll update here when I decide to reopen, but regardless, stay safe and well, and remember that no matter what: You Need Art. Art Needs You. Ruefully, Lauren Ciborowski, Owner and Impresario

NOW that’s what I call art


This art is a wonderful example of art from this period of art production. Some say its the best of those arts while others reserve judgement. First painted by world renowned art guy “Arty” it has since been aged like fine wine and had a fancy frame put around it to enhance its aesthetic assault on your taste.

Birds of a Feather


Put together as a tribute for the great “hair de jur” of 1890 this piece features exquisite use of water color, crayon color, and sun color, truly displaying the mastery of the artist and his wide range of talents. The authors identity remains a mystery to this day but some say it was the work of a poor farm boy in the Mississippi Delta who learned to read by way of twig bundling.
