More locals-only stuff but if you are one to go to North (Interstate/Rosa Parks area), then this gallery is the shit and Chase has a piece in this show. 
More info at Rocks Box online.

Coloring Frosting with Food Dye {click pics and links for LARGER view}

You can use this chart to make frostings of ALL these colors with just a standard box of these basic colors:

  1. red (r)
  2. yellow (y)
  3. blue (b)
  4. and green (g)

Each box has the number of food coloring drops/color combinations needed to create ALL the colors you see above (for cake frosting or white cake batter)! 

**don’t be too alarmed: 100 drops is only 1tsp! 

I feel like this is also a lesson in “don’t let your basic or cheap tools limit you, push at their fucking boundaries.”

Jonas Etter - Wallpieces (2009) - Burnt liquid sugar, maple and swimmingpool coating

An object the volume of which consists of viscid burnt sugar, melted due to air moisture while being another work of art. Put on the wall immediately before the opening reception, the content slowly starts to flow out.”

Artists @libbybulloff and Stephen Robinson at last night’s opening reception for their show “Nightmares: Real & Imagined” (up through July). (at Sequential Art Gallery)

This show is hella sick and worth seeing if you’re downtown. One of a kind tintypes of intricate scenes of the dark and mysterious, set into shadow boxes that invite you to peer close to take in the delightful detail. Plus, there are lots of “seconds” that are gorgeous but not up to their crazy high standards of finished perfection.

McRib is Back by Jonathan Devis

His teacher told him to take art more seriously… and here is his rebuttal on his final project.

Brilliance. 

Good for him. Teachers. Meh.
