Carve, cut, chop

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.

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.

Taco and a Haircut, Two Bits

Fades are out, Rough Edges are in

This month's tasty (and tasteful) exhibition at Ace Barbershop, Rough Edges, features the beefy, cheesy works of Gabriel Luis Perez. The taco and cheeseburger art—or more precisely, painted collages of beef, lettuce and tortilla colors—has inspired fresh gab topics in the tiny Downtown shop.

Culture Shock

Central Artsy Parts

There are so many cool art shows happening, all the time, everywhere in this city. I'm just going to cram in a mention for a few along the Central corridor right here.

Napkin Art #19: “Hand Holding Napkin” by Gabe Jaureguiberry

Gabe from Ace Barbershop drew this spectacular picture of a hand holding another piece of napkin art. Notice the drink in the background sitting on (yes!) another napkin? Whatever’s in that glass, I owe him one. We talked about having a napkin art show at the barbershop, too. That’d be cool.
