Trey Speegle: America’s #1 paint-by-number pop artist

Walking into artist Trey Speegle’s RePop Shop is a little bit like going back to the future. Filled with vintage paint-by-number kits and paintings, many of which have been transformed into art that can be described as ”pop conceptualism,” the area is a wonderful mix of old and new.

Most fishermen know where Cooks Falls is. Take New York 17 West past Roscoe, where it starts crisscrossing the Beaverkill River, then take the first exit, 93.

“I liken it to the process of cell mitosis, when an organism splits off into two new entirely whole organisms,” said Brad Krumholz, right, of the changes in store for himself, co-founder Kowalchuk and the NACL. “Each came from the first, but each is different and neither can be said to be the same as the original.”
