Fool’s Gold

Don’t let its title, Golden Guts, deter you from seeing the new exhibit in the Bemis Underground featuring new mixed media on paper, canvas and panel from Kim Reid Kuhn and Josh Powell.      

While Golden Guts doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, despite its forced alliteration, its inspiration, concept and realization are mostly pleasing and palatable. Powell and Underground curator Joel Damon have a history of...

‘Zones’ gets you out of your zone at Peerless Gallery

It’s quite typical to have your space invaded at an art opening—people drinking wine, gossiping in circles, bumping elbows and hovering to see the art on the walls.  It’s quite atypical to have your space encroached on in a gallery by a kinetic sculpture—a remote-control-car driven wooden trailer.
