New Treasuries at Etsy and Upcoming Reviews

"Plague Doctor's Mask"
by TomBanfield
I've made some new treasuries on Etsy. One celebrates masks, since it's time for Mardi Gras celebrations. The second treasury celebrates Icarus and his many artistic incarnations currently available for sale.

Last night, Michael and I attended an opening for sculptor Peter Calaboyias, whose retrospective at Shadyside's Gallerie Chiz I'll be reviewing for City Paper. More to come on this shortly.....I'll also be heading to the Warhol Museum next week to review The Word of God: Sandow Birk's American Qur'an . I'm excited to see this, since Birk's work brings together graffiti tagging techniques and Islamic calligraphy to amazing aesthetic effect.


  1. Liked both of the galleries linked here Savannah and glad you've got your hand in so much. As for the graffiti, have always admired Banksy.

  2. Yes! This is totally brilliant:
    Actually, his whole site is filled with excellent guerilla-style commentary. Thank you, Chris!! :-)
