I feel that my work is complemented by S. P. Dinsmoor's Garden of Eden www.garden-of-eden-lucas-kansas.com and the work at the Grassroots Art Center www.grassrootsart.net. There are several other artists in Lucas who do very interesting work.

Eric Abraham's Flying Pig Studio and Gallery is located in Downtown Lucas, Kansas next door to Brant's Market where the most fantastic homemade Czech style meats are available! Lucas is 16 miles north of I-70 - Exit 206 (Wilson, Kansas Exit) on K-232 (which is a Kansas Scenic Byway) If you come to Lucas, it is an all day adventure to check out the "Lucas Triangle"! You will want to call ahead to make sure I am here (I go out to quite a few shows - check "where to fine my work") -- 785-525-7722. OR - the Grassroots Art Center can let you in during their normal Open Hours.

In April 2004, I sold my school house and studio in Wabaunsee, Kansas and bought a 6000 square foot former Chevrolet dealership building in Lucas, Kansas - www.lucaskansas.com While redoing the building to suit my needs and aesthetics, I am finally getting more work done. There sure was a lot more to this job that I figured on - there always is! This fulfils my long time desire to have a New York City loft (without the hassells of New York City - which is still one of my favorite cities) with a large studio, retail gallery and living space. The "Flying Pig" name came from the fact that I have made Flying Pigs now since 1968 when it startid out as a joke that would never go away - no matter how hard I tried! In graduate school there was an architecture student in the ceramics class that made about 30 thrown piggy banks - we all said "that is NOT what you do in a serious ceramic class" -- so, I thought: "If he can make tsotskeh piggie banks, so can I --- ". I made this incredible twenty inch tall piggy bank mounted on a tall base with a Greek Temple inscribed "First National Oink" with a Mexican style piggy bank on top. With such an outrageous creation, I had to follow up, and have been out doing that piece since! In the gallery space, I plan on showing other artist's works from time to time along side my work.
