Prints Charming

Who you callin' unfinished?
I got a call just now from Amanda Verbeck, owner of the brand-new Pele Prints studio in Crestwood (9400 Watson Road; 314-750-7799). She'd just read an item in our Night & Day section that features an opening this evening from 5:30 to 8:30 at Pele, a show called Works in Progress by local printmaker Brandon Anschultz.

Drawing on a press release Anschultz sent that describes the show as "a preview of works in progress," Jason Toon riffed on the notion, comparing it to a last-ditch all-nighter when a big school project is due.

The blurb has Verbeck regretting her choice of a title. Anschultz's prints weren't finished when the release went out, she explains, but they are finished now, and she's afraid readers will get the wrong idea.

She's got a point.

"Do you grind on through the night, or just turn in what you've got so far and hope it's enough for a D?" Sorry about that, Amanda. Sounds like Jason soared off on the wings of a college-days flashback.

"I've learned my lesson for sure," Verbeck says. "'Works in progress' can send the wrong message. I'll never use that term again!"
