Portland-based poet/photographer/collage artist Delilah Jones' groovy cosmic dreamscapes are steeped in magic-- and milkshakes. After falling in love with the Pacific Northwest on an epic post-grad road trip, New York-raised Jones took a job at an ice cream shop in Portland; she worked on collages between customers and admits she made "more art than milkshakes."  Her sundae-scooping gig ended a few months ago when the shop's owners sold the place, but ...

When I went on a class trip to Dumbo back in 2009 and saw the work of "yarn bomber" Olek (at the time unknown to me), I didn't think that the strange art--people in crocheted body suits-- would become the subject of much talk today. The crafty vandal is popping up all over the city (not to mention, the world!) with her colorful works of art that's stitched around everything from bikes and cars to people to the Wall Street bull!What's gotten her name on the ...

So now, when I look at photographs, I find myself not just staring at a picture with effects I probably can't name, but being enamored and drawn into a whole new  world; the eyes of someone else. Such is art, bringing out all sorts of things you didn't expect it to. Such ... Read More
