  • Review: 'Cowboy Poet' lassoes a let down

    Sometimes we try really hard to like things and no matter how hard we try, it just doesn’t work.
    Let’s just preface by saying that sometimes if you have to try to like something, then something must be wrong.

  • Artists explore what it means to be 'Naked'

    Abandon everything that comes to mind when the word “naked” is spoken and try to see things in a different light without blushing or giggling like a teenager.
    The staff at the Fuller Lodge Art Center is hoping that patrons will do just that, as it presents its newest exhibit, “Naked,” opening with a reception from 5-7 p.m. Friday. More than 50 artists will share their interpretations of what it means to be naked.
    The range of work on display is as varied as the artists. From sketches and photographs of nudes, to ceramic and bronze interpretations of the female body, to photographs of stingrays and trees, each individual shares their vision.

  • 'Woman of steel' to discuss her work

    Sculptor Destiny Allison will talk about her work and the sources of art in everyone during a talk at 6 p.m. Thursday at Fuller Lodge. She will also sign her book, “Shaping Destiny,” after the talk. The Fuller Lodge Art Center and Otowi Station Bookstore are sponsoring the event.
    Working in bronze, stone and steel for the past 15 years, Allison first fell in love with sculpting while playing with her son’s modeling clay during a moment of writer’s block and domestic frustration. Since then, Allison has focused solely on the art of sculpture. Dedication, tenacity and what she calls “downright stubbornness” have yielded her current success.
