Framing parts-hardware (Montrose)

Date: 2009-05-20, 5:27PM CDT

I have a variety of parts for artists who frame and hang their works. Here's sample of the types of fasteners, wires, hooks screws, etc. If you need a small bag or very large, let me know; the price will be real cheap compared to anywhere else.

Some People Have All The Fun

Pottery needed! Please make me a pot. (I'll pay you. Richmond, TX)

Date: 2009-05-20, 10:54AM CDT

I would very much like a cookie jar, with a lid. About one and a half gallons, but the exact dimensions aren't important.

It's for a gift. I'd need to get it (and I'll pay you cash) by June 5. She has the butter dish in the attached picture.

I'm hoping to get a cookie jar that matches it. The colors, etc. If you could get a star on it, like the butter dish that would be great.

Please let me know if you can help, and how much I could pay you for your help.

Magazine On Film

Buffet is a new project being launched from the center of Houston to the furthest corners of the universe. A carefully curated, experimental, video-based DVD periodical, Buffet seeks to function as one-part art venue, one-part subscription-based publication, and one-part magical mystery tour.

A video magazine of sorts, this periodical will arrive at your doorstep as a delicious and nutritious DVD of fiction and non-fiction video shorts, including but not limited to documentary, narrative, animation, and found footage. You make it (or find it). We show it.

What makes this periodical different is that we are really interested in you. Yes, you. We want to see the world through your eyes. For our inaugural issue we’re interested in focusing on Houston. We’d love to see work by Houston artists, former Houston artists, or anyone interested in our fair city. It could be about a subject that bears a certain relevance to place or it just belongs in a portrait of Houston, a portrait of “us”.

We’re looking forward the seeing what you have for us!

Bon Appetit, Buffet Chefs

DEADLINE: June 16, 2009

If If You

I’ll say that it’s a book about two guys playing chess in a smoky café in 1916 in Zurich, Switzerland. Only the two guys are Tristan Tzara, the founder of Dada, a radical art movement, and V. I. Lenin, the architect of the Russian Revolution. Oh, and it’s the most important chess game ever played, because the world’s never going to be the same when these guys get up from the table.

I would like to give young people solid intellectual, historical support for saying “screw you,” which is what they do anyway, even unsupported by serious scholarship.

I’d like to remind older people, too, that refusing war and thinking radically new thoughts are vastly preferable to institutionalizing the little we think we know.

Dada has never received its full due in critical literature because it’s still alive. Dada is pure dynamite, it mocks attempts to grasp it, and it is perennially rediscovered and in use by the discontented young. Dada’s most recent period of new glory was punk and postpunk cultures, but it flourished also in kitsch, camp, pop art, and street theater.

We are all tourists in this posthuman world that we don’t yet know very much about. Humans used their skills in the past to conquer and live with nature, an option no longer available to us. We have, for better or worse, become the custodians of nature, the grown-ups who must care for an infantilized and domesticated nature. If we don’t, we go down with it.

The Artery sez:

Bill Wolff, Howlin' Forest, The Artery Sculpture Park

Concert tonight! Friday's event with Gypsy Dance Theatre drew about 140 people, the show was stunning, everyone left happy and we have outrageously beautiful footage to edit in the coming months. Last night's jazz concert was inside due to the weather threat. My congratulations to the artists for a powerful presentation.

Now on to TONIGHT... one of the last chances to be comfortable outside in Houston until October... the weather and the talent have aligned to offer us another perfect evening, come if you can!

Screen Printer? Want some screens?

Screen Printer? Want some screens? (Houston)

I am moving to the east coast soon and I can't pack my screens. I have 7 screens that are all around 17 x 20. A Few are a little larger, a few smaller. You can find my post in the for sale section - it's about a week old.
I would like to get $50 for all of them, but like I said, they're going to be on the curb sometime this week if noone wants them. Feel free to make offers, whoever offers me the most by the time i have to leave, be it five dollars, can buy them. Oh yeah, and don't be LAZY! Boo-hoo, I'm an artist but I don't want to have to leave my house to get these ridiculously cheap screens, I think I'll just wait until I feel like doing a new print in three months and then I'll just buy one for $25. You know what, I'm just going to DIY it and staple some cheesecloth to this frame i made out of old rulers. Or maybe the problem is that you can't fit all of those screens in your backpack making it impossible to come pick them up on your fixed-gear schwinn. COME ON! I NEED GAS MONEY!!!!! (p.s. if you do ride a bike i'll bring them to you.)
