Wonderful post by Lee Gaizak Brooks in The Glass Quarterly Hot Sheet regarding Scott Darlington's glass hammer on display in the area artists exhibit at the TMA.
And, in my opinion the most remarkable piece in the current exhibit.
Taking a first place award at the 92nd Toledo Area Artists Exhibition at the Toledo Museum of Art (and on display through August 22nd), Scott Darlington’s Genetically Modified Corn Hammer (2010) may be one of the artist’s most compelling works to date.

We have just received these gorgeous etchings of native Michigan Brook trout. Brook trout require cool, spring fed streams and pools. They can be found under cover of rocks, logs and undercut stream banks.

These fine etchings are perfect examples of Hanka's mastery of technique and shine light upon his deep love and respect for the subject. If you have a place in your heart for trout and all the beauty and life that surround them you'll want to see these glorious prints.Brook Trout VI

As perhaps yet another nod towards the wonderful book, "Water for Elephants" by Sara Gruen this current show at the Ohio Art Council's Riffe Gallery has grabbed my attention. The exhibit, Sawdust and Spectacle: Under the Big Top in Small Town America is showing now through April 21, 2010. We've not yet had a chance to see the show but I still wanted to bring it to your attention/calendar. The book left such an impression on me that when I see anything circus related, especially early 20th century, I'm immediately hooked. We're planning to see it in mid March; can't wait. There's something about this imagery that's simultaneously nostalgic and creepy that always draws me in. If you get the chance to see it let us know what you think.
