Cat Bennett’s new book isn’t really about actual pipes, even if the title is Making Art a Practice: 30 Ways to Paint a Pipe (How to be the Artist You Are). Instead, the title is a reference to Magritte’s famous “Ceci n’est pas une pipe” painting, where a pipe is used as a vehicle for understanding the meaning of art. In that way, Bennett’s book is a lot like Magritte’s pipe, and with it, Bennett will help you discover the meaning of your own art.
Perched on top of Museum Hill in Santa Fe, NM is a yearly festival called The International Folk Art Market. It’s brilliant with color and ripe with international artists excited to show you their craft, all impressive and masterful. This year was my second attending, but it was no less exciting. The art ranges from 2D paintings to metal work, to fabric and textile arts, and to ceramics, just to name a few. Coming away without a souvenir is nearly impossible, and your beiges and whites will thank you for it.
Lisa L. Cyr’s mixed-media fantasy-inspired work invites the viewer to participate in her imaginative vision. That vision inspires both Cyr’s paintings and her desire to encourage others in creative pursuits. “Create from the heart, innovate without boundaries, strive for greatness and speak to the culture in ways that inspire and motivate,” she says, explaining, “I often use this quote I wrote on my website and other materials.”
In my heart, I belong to Cincinnati. This town is known for loyalists, and even though I typically buck against the current, this is one instance in my life where I proudly flow along with it in content tranquility. That is why I always feel slightly guilty when I skip over all the cute little jars of buttons near the registers of all the cute little stores in Cincinnati. I do this because I know about a well-kept secret tucked on the second floor of a shop.
Charles Ritchie, one of the featured artists in the spring 2013 issue of Drawing, has spent decades creating a vast, fascinating, and reflective body of work centered around his home, studio, and neighborhood in Maryland. Many of his works include …
Murals are always a fun surprise. One minute you’re walking down a city street composed of muted grays and faded blacks, and the next, you’re staring at a colorful urban masterpiece, painted joyfully across the side of a building. We’re lucky enough to have some stunners here in Cincinnati, but Philadelphia is universally recognized as the World’s Largest Outdoor Art Gallery, and is home to over 3,600 public artworks. The Mural Arts Program has made them all accessible in their tours, by way of trolley, bike, train, or your own two feet.
