Culture Herd We Hunt – You Gather

Welcome

This sites content production happens in random spurts When I have time and can convince other artists into talking and/or working with me. I make no apology for it's infrequency as I'm probably making other cool things happen. I'M ONLY ONE MAN... who loves artists and writes articles and interviews about their lives.

Jan 1st Thursday Favorites

I took my daughter on her second artwalk. She's still officially the youngest person @ artwalk (3 months) and I'm not gonn lie, she's a critic already. For work that she doens't like she whines and kicks, work she's just "ok with" will turn her head away but glance back occasionally, and work that she actually likes makes her mouth drop open (usually dropping the pacifier) here's our combined favorites for this blustery Mid-winter evening downtown.

Harold Hoy
Via: Gallery IMA
Erector Set Panda
Galvanized Steel and Rubber
16 x 31 x 8 inches

At first you think, cool animals made our of home depot parts... But Your Wrong.

He uses galvanized steel and pipe hanger material (based partly on the erector set) to work around larger issues of man's predilection for claiming ownership of the natural world and our desire to manipulate and re-form it

A Piece that's not an animal


Olena Conover
Via: Pacini Lubel
Autumn Birches
Acrylic on Canvas
38½" x 38½"

Pacini Lubel found a gem once again.This is a shitty photo but it's all I could find online of her new stuff. She laces the whole scene with lines that tease your eyes away from the lush colors and draw instead to the framework of branches and limbs that turn a set of trees into a living breathing canopy. Again there are stronger pieces and I'm kicking myself for not getting photos.

Only one I could find: ArtLena.com


W-Scott-Trimble
Via: Soil
Concept Car #1, 2010
Wood, masonite, plaster, chalkboard paint, chalk
114 x 48 x 48 inches
note: I think the one Exhibited was larger

Soil posted an Exhibit Called "Transvalue" that was supposed to explore the transference of information and knowledge, based on how we learn from our elders, our institutions, and our environment...

But All I could do was wonder why the hell they built a huge Slate-board Hummer. Later I found out that I was too early and they hadn't put out the chalk for everyone to write with yet: shitty. I love this kinda shit. Makes people love art more because they get to be a part of it. hmmm....

Liquor Crack-Down

Just heard about a few galleries being busted by under cover liquor control agents. Apparently, a 19yr old got a DUI and said she was at artwalk.

The state passed legislation recently that Allows art galleries, furniture stores, and the like to offer complimentary alcoholic beverages to its patron during special events. (instead of making them get a banquet license every month) but its supposed to be for FREE beverages and most galleries are asking for a donation which turns into law breaking because thats technically SELLING alcohol.

My advise:

To gallery owners: you're only selling us shitty wine anyway. Give it away for free, find another way to make the $50/month and avoid getting fined/arrested/imprisoned.

To artwalkers: BYOB. Brown bag it bitches, the wine at artwalk isn't even worth a $2 donation as most of it is $2/bottle!

To underaged drinkers: next time you get a DUI tell them you were drinking at golden gardens, or on aurora. Shutting down artwalk because you can't handle your shit is weak sauce.

Here's a quick look at the new liquor provisions...

1) Art galleries are not currently required to have a liquor permit

2) Although you are not legally required to check ID's, you are required to check that no one under 21 is receiving alcohol (aka check the ID's of "youthful" looking individuals)

3) Your gallery is liable for what happens after an under 21 individual drinks liquor at your establishment. For example, if someone under 21 drinks at your gallery, and then gets into an accident, the liability will go back to you/your gallery.

Here's more on the story...
