The last month or so we’ve been extremely busy, putting the finishing touches on our “Art Works Every Time” exhibition. We sifted through hundreds of submissions to pick 10 of the most exciting emerging artists around today. Since we teamed up with Colt 45 to present this one of a kind exhibition, we got to brainstorm all kinds of creative giveaways we thought you’d enjoy: free Colt 45, free T-shirts to the first 100 visitors (with Colin Strandberg’s award-winning graphic, above) and even never-before-made (or tasted) Colt 45 ice cream by local fave Scoops! Trust us, it’s delicious.
To top off the night, we’ve invited comedienne Charlyne Yi, who will perform with her band Flesh. Yi’s debut album was produced by none other than Tenacious D, and her live performance has to be seen to be believed!
Whew! Now we just have to hang the show! Can’t wait to see all of you at the opening!
When I think of Detroit I think of decaying buildings and poverty but this insightful documentary by Palladium Boots (Hosted by Johnny Knoxville) has given me new hope and enthusiasm about Detroit. Follow Knoxville on this 4 part documentary through the city and meet the people who are working to bring creativity and excitement to this once great city. Watch part 2-4 after the jump.
We often think of bodies as opposed to landscapes. The figure belongs to the portrait and natural scenery to the landscape – bodies inhabit the landscape. For Carl Warner‘s series of photographs, though, the bodies make the landscape. Twisting torsos, bent limbs, crevices, and folds are given finer than the typical attention. Layering of bodies and parts with such focus on detail create landscape like images. Mountains, caverns, and valleys seem to rise out of the figures and become a land of skin. [via]
Samuel Esq., freshly released from Bath Spa University (great name, by the way), has a way about his style that really makes me want to go back in time and introduce Queen Victoria to some New Wave music and watch the results. Esquire manages to make beautiful Victorian drawings and mix them with today.
