Avtomobile on East Liberty

An artistic couple sets up shop

From the September, 2011 issue

Avtomobile, a tiny new shop on East Liberty underneath the Bead Gallery, is hard to characterize, but it's not hard to say. It's pronounced--pronovnced?--"automobile." Maris Turner, one-half of the young artist couple who owns it, takes the credit and blame for the name. "It's from pop-up art shows me and my buddies did in New York. Our logo was a structural drawing of a car. We called it avtomobile." He says people don't always get the Roman u, somehow more recognizable when chiseled into courthouse mottos about jvstice.
