​LivingRoom presents “In the Phantom Tongue of the Mountain Witch,” an exhibition of ​art​work by Duncan Robert Anderson and David Shannon Harrison.

LivingRoom Realty is pleased to present the opening of In the Phantom Tongue of the Mountain Witch: Duncan Robert Anderson and David Shannon Harrison on Friday, May 4th, 2018 from 7 pm to 10 pm.  The event will be located at LivingRoom (1530 W. Superior St.) in the Noble Square neighborhood.


“Duncan Robert Anderson and David Shannon Harrison, friends and fellow makers of many decades, both hail from the heart of the Mountain Empire.  Perhaps coming of age in a place where iconic figures like Daniel Boone walked in flesh and blood makes you more attuned to the intrusion of myth and magic into lived experience; these works are redolent with the possibilities of Presence for better or for worse.
