An Afternoon at Storm King

We recently made the best of an opportunity to test drive the new 2013 Ford Explorer Sport, and took the midsize SUV upstate to Storm King for the afternoon. Ford has a rich history of Arts funding, so we thought it a nice tie-in. We made it to the magnificent sculpture park and back safely and in style, bumping selections from our Sound Advice series on the way. Add in all of this with the bonus of not getting a single speeding ticket during the trip, and it made for a great day.

Openings & Parties: ATTACHMENTS at The Hole

Great show, cool scene, and really just an overall enjoyable night. Go see this show, it’s up until November 3rd.

Re-Up: AJ Fosik’s Beer Sweaters

We did a little Q&A in March 2010 with Artist/Sculptor A.J. Fosik about his awesome Beer Sweater Collection. Now that we’re in Sweater weather, I felt it was the appropriate time to unleash it again.

Art Explanations: William Buzzell

Sometimes it’s nice to know what’s going on in the picture you’re looking at. Personally, I always like to know what’s happening in Will Buzzell’s work. Since he has a new show up, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to ask him the story behind each piece.

His work is on view along with Andrew Jeffrey Wright and Jesse Harris in Permanent Demand at Cooper Cole in Toronto.

Babes of Yore: France Gall

France Gall is a super popular French yé-yé singer.

Jonny Negron

Thanks to this newly published book through PictureBox, I’ve been introduced to the work of Jonny Negron. The best way to describe Negron’s art is if you took Robert Crumb, dropped him in on the border of Bushwick with a stack of King magazines, Japanese comics, and art supplies and told him to get to work. The results are colorfully addictive.

Pick up Negron on PictureBox’s website

Punk: An Aesthetic

For the most part, if you’re reading this website, you get it. So it is a no-brainer that you will appreciate this new title published through Rizzoli that’s edited by Johan Kugelberg and Jon Savage. Heavily illustrated and featuring rare artifacts from the origins of the punk movement, Punk: An Aesthetic is a necessary addition to that already top notch bookshelf of yours.
