The South Shows Off Its Trendy Side in NoDa

Where: North Davidson Street at E 36th Street [map], Charlotte, NC, United States, 28205
February 24, 2009 at 11:31 AM | by | ()

On your next layover in Charlotte, check out the city if you have time. There’s a lot more to do than to just chill out on those rocking chairs between the terminals.

Escape the shackles of your business lodging in Uptown and drive straight up North Davidson Street until you hit something a little trendy. NoDa starts, and pretty much ends, towards the finale of North Davidson around the intersection of 36th Street. The historic arts neighborhood is a funky collection of shops, galleries, and restaurants. It’s refreshing, especially when compared to some of the more cookie cutter offerings in suburban Charlotte.

Meat-y Art, Part Two

Where: 511 West 25th Street [map], New York, NY, United States, 10001
October 28, 2008 at 9:50 AM | by | ()

Wow. Ask and ye shall receive.

Yesterday, the Mona Lisa meat museum in Russia inspired us to demand a stateside meat-art exhibit, and today we discover there's already a fantastic one in New York.

Meat After Meat Joy is an inventive and unsettling group exhibit consisting of works of fine art crafted from meat products.

The show is currently on display at the Daneyal Mahmood Gallery in Chelsea, and will run through November 15.

Music Photography Gallery to Open at CBGB Site

Where: 313 Bowery [map], New York, ny, United States, 10003
March 24, 2008 at 2:15 PM | by | ()

How refreshing that the skeleton of CBGB's old 313 Gallery performance-and-art space on the Bowery will sprout something other than a Starbucks. The space will hang on to the rock 'n' roll spirit when it is reborn as a second New York outpost of the Morrison Hotel Gallery.

The new space will lend itself well to visiting browsers, as it's over twice the size of Morrison Hotel's smaller SoHo gallery. The opening show, featuring works by Steve Joester, will debut this Thursday, March 27. After that, on April 24, will be Bob Gruen's "Rockers" exhibit.

Fall Culture Travel :: Stuttgart's Art and Bonnie & Clyde

Where: Konrad-Adenauer-Str. 30-32, Stuttgart, Germany, 70173
October 11, 2007 at 9:15 AM | by | ()

Cold, rainy fall days make for the best culture travel. So over the next few weeks we're mapping the upcoming shows to see.

The middle of Europe is always a good place to gaze at art, mostly because it's often raining outside. And because plenty of the world's best painters and sculptors are from around these regions, the galleries are pretty well stocked. In Stuttgart the Staatsgalerie (state gallery) is no exception, although many visitors come especially to see the outside of it with its pastel-painted modern architecture. As well as a stunning regular collection, rolling exhibitions feature greats like Monet, Gauguin and Matisse.

When you need food and drinks (and, according to their slogan, also rock'n'roll) then it must be time to head for Bonnie & Clyde near the Stöckach subway station. As well as being a hang-out for local students, it seems to attract a mixed crowd of Germans and foreigners, and the staff speak good English so you'll be able to get exactly the beer you're after--important when there are so many good German beers to choose from.

Fall Culture Travel :: Iraq in NYC

Where: 120 Orchard St. [map], New York, ny, United States, 10002
October 9, 2007 at 2:30 PM | by | ()

Cold, rainy fall days make for the best museum visits. So over the next few weeks we're mapping the latest shows worth seeing--and a nearby spot to nurse your art hangover.

It's easy to hate on 20-something hedge fund dudes for their career successes, but we can't extend the same pessimism to Ashley Gilbertson, the 29-year-old photojournalist whose book chronicling the war in Iraq, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, will hit shelves in just a few weeks.

In honor of the book's release, from Thursday, October 18 to November 29, 10 life-sized photos and selected excerpts will hang on the walls of the hip Lower East Side space, GalleryBar. Selected images of the 2004 battle for Falluja, the early occupation and Iraq's recent national elections are examples of what you can expect.

After absorbing the realities of the world, grab one (or two, or three) of 39 beers at the newly-opened Spitzer's Corner at Ludlow and Rivington to ruminate on foreign policy and ponder how excited you are for the next presidential election.

Fall Culture Travel :: Alice In Chicago

Where: 1052 W. Fulton Market [map], Chicago, IL, United States, 60607
October 8, 2007 at 10:00 AM | by | ()

Cold, rainy fall days make for the best museum visits. So over the next few weeks we're mapping the latest shows worth seeing--and a nearby spot to nurse your art hangover.

Linda Warren Gallery in downtown Chicago's West Fulton Market opened its Fall 2007 art season with the work of Heather Marshall. The exhibition, called "Olio Tableaux," is her first time presenting solo. Her small, rich paintings demand a careful and close eye, and the longer you look the more you seem to see. In a separate gallery space, Kathy Ruttenberg's ceramics, with their creepy Alice in Wonderland feel, are on view. The dual exhibitions are the perfect preface for dinner at Sunday Dinner Chicago.

Go down the rabbit hole and enter the magical hidden garden of the private outdoor restaurant run by three friends who met in culinary school, including a cook at Chicago's trendy NAHA restaurant. The trio runs a monthly supper club, and for $55, you can join the group for dinner.
