The Man Show

Let's face it, even before Don Draper, the men of the art world have always been, and always will be, rock stars. If he can fix your car and paint your portrait, it's a sure bet that he's getting a first AND second date.

Artist Kevin Hebb sent this postcard last week for "The Man Show" featuring his work along with Gordon Carlisle, Scott Murry, Jeff Badger and Tim Yankosky. The work is being shown at The Three Graces October 7th - 31st. The same gallery that shows The Teeny Tiny Art Show twice a year, a pull on the heart strings just by mention of the title, does it again with a brilliant line-up. And we thought we couldn't love The Three Graces in Portsmouth, NH any more than we already did!

Design meets Art… and brings the beer.

Boston based Glovebox artist Tod Craggio aka local Award-winning industrial designer Craig Rubino shares with Glovebox his project for the Pabst Blue Ribbon “Eye F*CK” event  @ North Star next Wednesday.  Using Design of the Times award-winning point-of-purchase display designed by Rubino and plenty of PBR cans, Craggio is creating a sculpture that will be shown at the event. 

“When PBR representative Rob Reilly told me about the show, I knew exactly what I would make.” says Craggio.

Utilizing a DNA (double helix style) prototype display that would have met its demise in the landfill, Craggio is refabricating it, and cloaking it in PBR cans.

Come check out the finished piece this Wednesday from 8-11 @ North Star. 222 Friend Street in the North End of Boston.  There will be other local artists work there as well.
