Globetrotters

Many is the man or woman who wanted to take that voyage “across the pond” — seeking one’s fortune, a new beginning or maybe just to escape with no intention of returning. Let the record show that most such movement has been east to west across the Atlantic. Yet, today, “The land of opportunity” is no longer an exclusive reference to America. Just as many Americans are rediscovering roots in their...

Wood Works

If there was one thing proved by Out of the Woods, an interesting Hot Shops group exhibit last summer, it is that wood sculpture can be more than craft or hobby for its artists.

KANEKO Block Party recap

* Last weekend’s KANEKO block party drew a large crowd to check out (and bid on) 50 or so works by local artists. Much of the work took the creative assignment literally, and many pieces were piles of various sized square blocks that somehow fit together. Rob Gilmer’s block pile focused on health care, while a series of blocks created by an anonymous artist were covered with maps. Some artists created wall...
