My new sculpture installation, Seahorses are fish. will be on display in The Whistler’s Window Gallery for the months of May and June. The Whistler is my favorite cocktail bar in Chicago and I’ve always loved how they use the window space so I’m very pleased to have my work on display there.
If you follow me on Instagram you’ve had some sneak peaks but if you want to see the final piece, there will be an opening reception on Thursday, May 2 from 6:30–9:30pm. Come have a drink with me!
I’m happy to have six sculptures on view in the Pearlman Gallery at the Art Academy of Cincinnati as part of their Sculpture Alumni Exhibition.
Lucky and Zonk (previously exhibited at the Contemporary Museum in Baltimore) are joined by a few of my smaller sculptures, a wall piece that I installed a few weeks ago and my screen printed Happy/Sad Pepperoni T-shirts. Other artists in the exhibition include Voss Finn, Jeff Casto, Lisa Merida-Paytes, Carla Johnson and Zach Rawe.
The exhibition is open now and runs through December 14, 2012. There will be a Final Friday Artist Reception on November 30, 2012 from 5–8pm. I will be there selling Happy/Sad Pepperoni T-shirts.
I interviewed The Seedy Seeds on Episode 11 almost a year ago but along with the passage of time comes change, including the introduction of a new member, drummer/multi-instrumentalist Joe Frankl. I try to unravel the mystery that is Joe and we discuss old-timey slang with banjo accompaniment courtesy of Mike Ingram.
Listen to the Seeds perform two songs live in my kitchen, “Ethel” and “Flooded”.

The 2012 Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival (AKA Sketchfest) offers plenty of comedy tonight with 24 groups performing on four stages (The Thrust, The Pro, The Box, The Cab) at Stage 773.
Many of the groups performing tonight also performed last night or last weekend.
For tonight’s 9pm slot I’m picking Heavy Wait featuring T.J. Miller (Late Night with David Letterman, Comedy Central), Brady Novak (Community, Raising Hope), Mark Raterman (Second City) and Nick Vatterott (Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Conan) but last night I saw Pangea 3000 and they were one of my absolute favorites this year so I also highly recommend seeing them tonight if you missed them yesterday.
