Get ‘The Works’

The Works, the current exhibit at the RNG Gallery may look a lot different from the outside. At first glance, it looks as if somebody assembled a bunch of farm tools and slapped them on the wall. If you look in the window, it becomes apparent that an artist was behind this and that somebody thought this out very carefully. Stepping inside, it’s evident this took intense time and thought.

Art Harvest

The annual Bemis Center auction has always been one of the most anticipated Metro arts events in the fall, but this year things have changed. The auction, that is, not the anticipation.

Opposites Attract

It’s not unusual for a Chinese artist to interpret or integrate the principal of yin-yang. After all, it is a philosophical belief in a duality of opposite but interdependent forces endemic to Asian culture in all forms.

Nor is it out of the ordinary for yin-yang to be a major motif in Western art, including recent exhibits in the Metro area. That would include the two-person husband-and-wife show,...

‘Vermin.me’ & You

Hammering. Chopping. Pushing. Plumbing. Adjusting. If you think its work, it is. Jamie Burmeister’s Vermin.me, 4-inch human-like sculptures in caricature and engaged in ordinary, everyday activities and drama-- are hard at it in the new exhibition Jamie Burmeister and Company at Modern Arts Midtown.  The Company includes not only Burmeister's vermin, but also other figurative works by Byron Anway, Alexandra...
