BETWEENERS: Catching up with local artist blogs

Any Gross's "Extroverted Biotope"
* Amy Gross shares some of her works from 5x5x5, a group exhibition she's participating in at Target Gallery Torpedo Factory in Alexnadra, VA. All of the works are under 5 inches.

* Eddie Arroyo posts about a unique opportunity that Locust Projects is offering to artist. Deadline is 5 p.m. Jan. 7 so hurry up and read it on Artisabout.com.

* Artist Autumn Casey shares video stills in which she screamed at the top of her lungs while in crowds during Art Basel ...

* Diana Contreras posts some of the cigar boxes she exhibited at Wynwood Cigar Factory and Red Dot.

What's the deal with this sticker? Cary Polkovitz probably has no idea either but that doesn't stop him from conjuring an imaginative story involving philosophers and cosmic intelligence.
* Last March, I did a Q&A with Cary Polkovitz about Often Overlooked, a little project he'd made of finding things, photographing them and making up little stories about them. Now he's trying to turn his fun little project into a book and has launched a Kickstarter to help the process along. Check out his Often Overlooked Facebook Page.

* Jordan Melnick (Beached Miami) posts his e-mail Q&A with the Awesome Foundation, which has formed a local chapter and is hoping to fund "flashes of micro-brilliance" through $1,000 grants.

* Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery in Lake Worth invites you to Turn On, Tune In and Spin Out this holiday season. The show, featuring poterry, wood turning and glass spinning runs 6-9 p.m. Dec. 21.

* Ruben Ubiera was the recent subject of a post by Jason Kaczorowski who took some photos of of the artist doing his thing in Wynwood.

* Jennifer Gironda shares some of her works in progress, and some pics from an Ugly Sweater party.

* Girls' Club posts about that Rosemary Duffy Larson Gallery is seeking proposals for exhibitions.

* Tina La Porta shares a pic from her Hand to Mouth series at Robert Fontaine Gallery.

* Writer Crissa-Jean Chappell explains why revision tastes like fresh pasta.


Betweeners is a regular feature that allows Arterpillar to justify her time spent reading other local art blogs and surfing for local art news ... and to talk about herself in third person in italics.
