Gallery Review

Mama, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Gauchos

Memory Boards: Exploring Hybrid Histories at Trevor Lucero Studio Artspace

The primary motif galloping through these paintings is the gaucho, the cowboy of the southern South American grasslands. In these complex, multi-layered images, artist Fabrizio Bianchi, whose parents are Argentinean, explores countless surprising facets of this romantic icon from his ancestral motherland.

Book Review

All the World's a Stage

A Company of Three

Most people don't love, or even like, the theater. I know this. I encounter people every week who are utterly indifferent to it, yet for some reason I'm always surprised to learn this about them. What's wrong with these people? Someone once told me that only 15 percent of the population will even consider spending their money on tickets to the theater. Most people in our society, let's be blunt, just can't be bothered. Why see Hamlet for $15 on stage when you can see a scintillating rerun of "Friends" on the idiot box for free?

Singapore's Christina Sng writes dark verse. While I have seen her work in such distributed titles as Space and Time, among those sci-fi, fantasy and horror periodicals not carried in stores, such as Wicked Hollow and Hadrosaur Tales, it seems difficult to pick one up without coming across her name.
