Howard Windham To Present ‘Oo-Papa-Doo’ In Group Exhibit At Imago Gallery 

Howard Windham will present recent mixed media collages, drawings and sculptures he playfully calls “oo-papa-doo.”

The phrase, Windham notes, was coined by the popular disc jockey, radio and TV host Jocko Henderson in the 1950s. Henderson was known for his ad lib patter, including “oo-papa-doo, how do you do!” Windham has adopted this phrase because he always has enjoyed it. “Try it,” he says, “It is fun.

It would be a great name for a band, for one of Frank Zappa’s grandchildren, your next household pet … or for an art exhibit.”

The exhibit goes from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
