I recently purchased a signed William S. Burroughs art print on eBay. Turns out, the seller, Bruce Webb, is a researcher, collector, and dealer of art and artifacts related to fraternal organizations and secret societies! He also has a gallery in Waxahachie, Texas, where Burroughs exhibited before he died. Webb has a deep interest in "old handmade items such as painted or repaired objects, fraternal lodge items, carnival banners, tramp art, memory jugs, quilts, and just killer oddball stuff." In fact, the current Webb Gallery show is "Art of the Secret Society," which runs until November 8. I love when a simple eBay purchase opens up a portal into another weird micro-universe of fascinating people and things.
