Biz newz and flash in the panties


While trailing all the hot spots that Roberta visited the week before (23 Degrees at the Ice Box and Naked Paper at Tower Gallery) I picked up some bits of info worth sharing.

On the business side, the enormous Crane Arts Building is fully rented out as of Sept. 1, co-owner Nick Kripal said when I bumped into him at the CFEVA 23 Degrees exhibit. Wow!!! Busybee Design moved in to a first floor space, Pig Iron Theatre Company will be performing at the Ice Box space there for the Fringe, while an architectural sculpture installation (of rammed earth, a medium close to Mr. Adobe, Kripal himself) will fill the gray area. In some small-world weirdness, Kripal approached the sculptor in Louisville, Ky. about exhibiting at the Crane only to learn the sculptor, who does guerrilla art installations around the country, has studio in the Crane Building that he shares with another artist (oops, I didn’t get names here).

On top of this, Pig Iron’s scrim for performances at night will serve as a screen for videos during the day.

Flash in the panties

The guerrilla-action underwear postcards at Tower Gallery (see Roberta’s post) were made by artists Matthew Neff and Christopher van Auken. Both artists have work in the Naked Paper exhibit there.

And Neff is also in the CFEVA show. I want to add my own thumbs up to Robertas’ on both the Naked Paper exhibit, and to the CFEVA exhibit (Roberta’s post on the latter is here).
