Christina and The Conjure Movement

    There is a certain feeling that is conjured when you are at a stranger’s house looking at family photos adorning foreign walls. The poses are familiar—grandma with grand kids, a photo of uncles, kids playing in a plastic pool—and this confuses the mind because your mind finds these people familiar strangers. I get…

Things are afoot. Spring is here. Sara Roan is employed again. A pallet of hilarious writers from Chicago have just arrived from Craigslist (cough, Liz Garcia) and have been making all of us at the International Headquarters lose our shit laughing. At the office the groundhog, emerged from his hole, saw the alien’s shadow, and then…

Sharonlee: Artist, Photographer, Poet, Aging Gypsy/Hippy

Below are four pieces by Australian artist Sharonlee. Her work has a dreamy aura, like vague images that remain foggy in our mind when we awake suddenly, transported from a world we suddenly have to admit was not reality at all but some other place our mind retreats to nightly.  

Artist Profile: Steve Driver

 Art is something that defies defining. You’ll find as many definitions for it as people attempting to define it. Yet usually, people sense it when they see it.

Rabble Rouser Of The Month: Dorman Dorey

I think it’s natural to want to trace things back to their origins. It’s why when you first meet a couple you inevitably ask, “How did you meet?” There’s something wistful about being able see how trivial ‘whatevers’ can lead to the defining changes of our lives. The “Rabble Rouser of the Month” for June, is…

Play by A. R. Ammons

A few days ago I visited a friend of mine in Ottawa. I hadn’t seen him since I met him five years ago when we were both traveling in Nicaragua. I’ve been thinking about something he said on the visit. His New Year’s resolution this year was to fail. Meaning, he decided he was going…

The Grumpy Goat Gallery

I met Pam and Cara like I meet most of my friends: Google Image Search. I was looking for a picture of the devil. More precisely, I was looking for a picture of the late artist who sold self portraits depicting himself as the devil on Prague’s Saint Charles Bridge. But that’s a different (and…

The House of Balls

When you cross the threshold of the House of Balls, you leave the familiar behind. The studio/gallery studio/gallery is creation of found-object sculptor, Allen Christian. You’ll find it tucked into a corner of the warehouse district of Minneapolis, in the neighborhood of condos, cafés and chic shops. But you never know what’s behind a door. Even…
