Joel Baca carves trout. He’s also a barber. Both woodcarving and hair cutting are practices that have a long tradition in his family. In this week’s Arts Profile, the Alibi talked to Baca about his affinity for blades, and the show he has up at Ace Barbershop (109 Fourth Street SW) through the end of February.
