Smitty Regula: September 25 through November 6, 2010

Smitty Regula
Opening Saturday, September 25 from 8pm to 10pm.
through November 6, 2010.

Following the design revolution of appliances of the 1950’s, Joseph Buttle, a dreamer and schemer, created ShrineCo. in 1953. His dream was to make worship easier and more efficient, and sell this door to door. He did this with his patented shrines, a shrine for any icon, belief, or denomination of religion. Regula, eagerly following in Buttle’s footsteps has researched and carefully reproduced in his own artistic interpretation replicas of only a hand full of the hundreds of shrines Buttle produced and sold.

About Smitty Regula:
Smitty Regula was born in 1976, grew up, and has had many unsuccessful endeavors in his life. He started off quite a while ago informing the public about identity theft from major corporations. Smitty then joined a cult who tried to remanufacture the idea of American consumerism. After this he pushed “grind”, a failed street drug. Regula is presently attempting to follow in the footsteps of “Joseph Buttle” by selling custom shrines door to door. Now Regula drives a chicken.
