Steely Style

Metal jewelry makes you feel like you’re in Blade Runner

The latest art show at Ace Barbershop is a futuristic, welded, stainless steel display. Consisting mainly of arm cuffs, it’s thoughtfully laid out by newcomer artist J.P. Rodman.

The Talking Fountain Still Flows

Gallery remains active despite Lead/Coal scramble

Walking up post-apocalyptic Lead Avenue to the Talking Fountain gallery, I wondered for a split second if it was worth it. The landscape was bleak. Like many businesses along the Lead and Coal corridor, the gallery has seen a decline in visitors, as it’s buried somewhere behind the pile of street-construction rubble. Despite the renovation inconveniences, the gallery and its local supporters are determined to put a positive spin on it.
