Three of my favorite artists (Caroline, Saelee, and Seonna) have joined forces for a show, I Know What You're Thinking, that opens next week in New York. Knowing the work these ladies do, I'm pretty sure it's gonna be a triple threat of awesomeness. See more of their work after the jump. Read More
This is the movie that Twilight should have been. Let the Right One In tells the love story between a shy 12-year-old blonde-haired, blue-eyed boy and his new neighbor who has a strange dietary restriction (she is a vampire). I'm rarely moved to tears at the end of movies these days, but by the end of this film I was crying as if I had seen The Lion King for the first time. It's full of cruelty, loneliness, love and redemption--the swimming pool scene at the end has more power and suspense than the entire 120 minutes of Twilight. Read More
I don't like to brag, but we won another Folio award for our fantastic and formidable Holiday Craftacular!! We won the Gold last year (for best Consumer Trade show) and this year gold for best Special Event and some other thing called the Grand Fame Winner! We'd like to thank all the amazing vendors and shoppers that make the Craftaculars so fun, as well as all the behind the scenes people like Susan, Maggie and our amazing staff and interns that work like dogs to pull it off. Award winning, sweetie. Read More

Prolific Japanese artist Nagi Noda has created some awe inspiring works, from her short films to her photography to her fashion line but I think it is safe to say these hats take the cake. Noda created these hats using the models own hair so all you need is a blow up picture of a dolphin and a can of hair spray to complete your Friday night ensemble. Check out the pictures up close here. xo, Alison. Ed. note. Whats tragic is that this brilliant artist passed away in September of last year at age 35 due to complications from a car accident.

Williamsburg Fashion Weekend!

BY Maggie in Arts

Don't miss checking out some of the up-and-coming Brooklyn designers this weekend. It truly is where fashion meets art.  The presentations are anything but ordinary or predictable, with show-specific live music scores and artist performances. Read More
I'll admit: I don't really get modern art. And I especially don't get Heide Hatry's art. Hatry is an artist who sculpts using clay and raw meat. In one series, Meat after Meat Joy (Meat Joy was a 1964 performance piece and I really don't get the art of performance art), Hatry created an American flag out of meat, complete with maggots. Okay, fine, it lacks subtlety, but let's assume she was going for a blunt and shocking political statement. Read More
So maybe you think Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander, and Larry Clark were some amazing photographers. You probably think they had an amazing eye, sense of composition, appreciation for color, and so on. But when you look at the incredible found photo collection of  the mysterious Superbomba , you may reconsider. Or, at  least, you'll have a newfound appreciation for the importance of editing in the art of photography. Superbomba's gallery of found images are so gorgous, so full of meaning, so memorable, they would make John Szarkowski proud. Read More

Opening tomorrow, February 14th, this exhibit documents those hard working ladies who've been slinging burgers, coffee, and familiar faces to loyal patrons for decades. Read More

Geek Girl Heaven

BY Sarah J. in Arts

I spent last weekend at the New York Comic Con, and as per usual, had a wonderful time. Comic cons might get a bad rap, but for me, they're just a place where people can unabashedly celebrate the things they love about comic books, sci-fi and fantasy, and more. Now the video games have taken over large chunks of the con floor, it's a little bit harder to get around, and Artist's Alley--the section of the floor where artists set up shop, sell prints, and do sketches for fans--seemed smaller than usual. Still, the best part of the con was the panel discussions. Read More
