As poetry rarely pays well, David McIntire (he/him) has taken on numerous occupations over the years including printer, flooring installer, delivery boy, factotum, retail manager, warehouse worker, pharmacy technician, security guard, handyman, Uber driver and roadie. He lived for a time in a converted school bus (dubbed the Poetry Bus). He now lives in a large house with several people and three cats. His third, and most recent, collection, Everything I Write is a Love Song to the World was published by Moon Tide Press in 2019, while his first two books of poetry, Punk Rock Breakfast and No One Will Believe You, were published by International Word Bank Press. In 2016 he toured Sweden with other poets and delivered a live radio performance in Stockholm. His poetry has also been translated into Swedish for local publication. He has released two CDs, one a spoken word album with musical accompaniment and one with his band 2-bit Whore.

UPDATED Statement on Healthy Spaces from Art at the Cave: We want to provide a healthy space to enjoy art. We have been practicing safety precautions such as regular cleaning, social distancing and mask wearing.
As a result of the removal of the mask mandate effective March 12, 2022, we will no longer require the wearing of masks. We encourage you to continue to wear a mask if it makes you feel more comfortable, and we will supply masks and hand sanitizer at the door. As social distancing has become a norm, please be mindful some will still need a bit of personal space while inside the gallery.
