by
2/7/14 Posted 2/7/14

Google's Doodle is really gay To coincide with the opening of the Sochi Games today, Google protested Russia’s anti-gay “propaganda” laws through its Google Doodle, a rainbow banner with bobsledders, snowboarders, and figure skaters. In addition to the doodle, Google quotes the Olympic Charter's anti-discrimination clause. This, apparently, not only to imply that Russia is not acting in the spirit of the Olympics, but also so that we don’t confuse it as simply an... [more]

Poetic Justice emoji illustration by the author The pen may be mightier than the sword, but it ain't a shield. A drunken debate between a poet and a prose writer turned tragic last week when the poet knifed the prosateur to death. The 53-year-old former teacher and poet has already confessed to stabbing his friend in his apartment in Sverdlovsk after the friend said only prose was real literature. The man faces up to 15 years in prison. This isn’t the first time philosophical debates... [more]

(Image: Robert Brennan, The Dance, 2007, Shaped canvas, mixed, 72 x 108 x 8 inches; © Robert Brennan) Robert Brennan (b. 1936, New Haven Ct. USA) Brennan's shaped canvas constructions are a search for the expressive potential of abstract form. There is a sense of peace and tension, the softness and flow of a curve, and the structural bones of a skeleton emerging beneath the outer skin. He states: “It is through the stark white works that I ultimately push the edge of painting... [more]

Fiona Kelly at 126, Artist-run Gallery 1/26/14 Posted 1/26/14

Missing Something Which No Longer Exists, a multi-disciplinary solo exhibition by Fiona Kelly addresses isolation and the interim. Kelly's observations of the manmade landscape, topographic movement, stagnation and metamorphosing debris are representations, characters for her contemporary fables; a legacy of longing, disposability and escape. In uniting objects, reclaimed materials and text she endeavours to generate happenings. Through visual combinations the viewer is invited to join in a fundamen... [more]

The exhibition is good, and congrats to the artist. A good friend of mine told me a rather disturbing story recently. He had been working with scott for years, and scott has helped him a great deal. Recently scott has not been able to sell as much art to pay his bills and has resorted to throwing events to sustain his gallery. Scott openly admits his failure, in his bathroom there is a painting that says 'BLACKBALL' which he says he got an employee to make in order to remind him how his ex-wife ha... [more]

McClure (b. 1945, Hugo, OK) I am influenced by my environment, nature and the land. Living on a ranch in northeastern Texas for a number of years has heightened that influence tremendously. I am surrounded by trees, pasture lands, sky, pond and a meandering creek. Looking out my windows in the house or the studio is such an inspiration…even in bad weather;... [more]
