b.a.l.m. WHITE SHOW at Hausmann Millworks reviewed

June 21, 2010

The b.a.l.m. WHITE SHOW at Hausmann Millworks was a little lighter on the trek
back to Kansas.  Three additional art works sold while in San Antonio, Texas.
Congratulations artists!

We heard over and over how much people appreciated the level of quality that this
show has to offer.  We would like to thank the people of San Antonio for their
appreciation, requests for extension, supporting this traveling art show both in
purchases as well as attendance and by word of mouth.  Thank you to Rex
Hausmann and the Millworks for hosting and helping sponsor the exhibition.

The exhibition opened on March 6th, 2010 in conjunction with
Contemporary Art Month (CAM) with a well attended reception with many curators,
directors and art buyers and of course art lovers.  There was also a large closing
reception on March 27th, 2010, with art performances, bands etc and
because of numerous requests the exhibit was extended to May 5th, 2010.

There was an excellent review  By Elda Silva – (San Antonio) Express-News
‘White Show’ able to amuse and unsettle at the same time

SUNDAY BRUNCH, Clouds & Produce…

August 23, 2008

SUNDAY BRUNCH

Join us for some vegetable inspired food, music and creative conversations at our weekly SUNDAY BRUNCH tomorrow August 24th, 2008. We are making an egg fritata with fresh herbs and fresh vegetables with dips (and coffee). Bring something else to the mix to share and let us know if you are coming! We thought that you might like to see an interesting use of vegetables as a musical instrument in this amazing concert of the Vienna Vegetable Orchestra. Feel free to bring a musical instrument. We are going to try and make a carrot recorder.

Cloud recap

Last night we had a great time at the percolator for the “clouds are easy to love” opening reception. We jammed to Karl Ramberg’s unique music which I would consider a blend between experimental keyboard, electronic sounds of chaos, and off tempo/ miss-beats, with a little bit of ambient thrown in for good measure. I absolutely loved the sound. It takes an artist to keep a good sound going while doing so much. Karl happens to be an excellent stone carver as well. He has helped with Myles Mountain stone carve on numerous occasions. We unfortunately missed the poetry last night, but were glad to see some interesting and thought provoking cloud inspired artwork. One piece that stuck out as interesting (at least to a three dimensional artists) was an installation by Anne Bruce. It’s materials was cloth, gold fishing hooks, sugar and flour. The material was hung with fishing hooks on the end of fishing line suspending the varying heights of expanded cloth, SIFTING loads of flour and sugar. Some of the flour and sugar drifted below the fabric on the ground. Another piece that engaged everyone with interest and laughter was the paper mache cloud, on which a childlike face was painted, and below a group of simple paper cutout flowers that were attached to a crank that when turned made the flowers dance up and down. We enjoyed seeing many artists including Spencer Art Museum Director Sara Lynn Reece Hardy. Our kids while disappointed not to find the cloud themed inspired smores that they were looking forward to, enjoyed producing more cloud art for the ceiling of the art space. Add to this some cloud themed snacks, and other drinks, with a fanciful hop-scotch-esque spray painting on the concrete in front of the gallery by David Lowenstien to top off the cooler than normal artistic evening.

Dot Dot Dot ArtSpace Opening “Overcoming the Fears that Overcome Us”

Join us tonight at Dot Dot Dot ArtSpace (a Fresh Produce Collective Event) for a Show Opening called “Overcoming the Fears that Overcome Us” with artist Whit Bone. According to artist Ostaf Heller, this is Whit’s first solo show. Dot Dot Dot ArtSpace is located at 1910 Haskell, Lawrence, KS in a new gallery that was converted from a liquor stores back stock room. The space is simplistic and unassuming, but the art is as the name of the founding group suggests “fresh”. Here is hoping for some “fresh” art and creative characters tonight at the ArtSpace.
