Husband-and-wife team JW and Melissa Buchanan are The Little Friends of Printmaking, a pair of award-winning illustrators and designers. They first made a name for themselves by designing and silkscreening concert posters but soon branched out into further fields, designing fancy stuff for whoever would pay them money. In addition to their work as illustrators and designers, they continue their fine art pursuits through exhibitions, lectures and artists’ residencies worldwide, spreading the gospel of silkscreen to anyone inclined to listen. The Little Friends currently live in Los Angeles with too many animals.

Artist Statement
We illustrate and hand-print all of our work ourselves. We’re there from beginning to end, actively engaging with each step of the (sometimes extraordinarily convoluted) printmaking process. We’ve been doing things this way for years now, and what once was a dire neccesity is now one of the core principles of our art practice. The silkscreen process and the act of printing have informed our aesthetic as illustrators and designers completely. Engaging with the process directly has given us a greater understanding of the materiality of the medium.

While adding harmony to Drew's bluesy melody vocals.

Acoustic Tuesday: Live Music by The Lark & The Loon from Eureka Springs, AR

lark_loon_1.jpg

The Lark and the Loon are a husband and wife songwriting duo. Roots music by simple definition their writing and song choices traverse the Americana idea in what they call an exploration of the etymology of American music. Sea shanties, Irish dance tunes, Delta and Piedmont blues, jazz, country, and the often complex duets that have become their signature all weave together under the calm direction of their showmanship and love of wordplay. Their debut album "Songbirds and Fog"was the highest charted self-released album on the Folk DJ charts the month of its release and has been gaining steady fanfare from the listeners reached by this 74 minute 19 track catalog of an album. Tailored to their environment they deliver performances full of humor, insight, and history. Having several coast-to-coast tours under their belt the two enjoy the road. In 2014 they moved to a semi-remote location in the Ozark mountains to better position themselves for travelling the country. When at home they write, work the rocky soil, and hike the natural beauty of the area, soaking in the peace and quiet before their next venture.

Acoustic Tuesday: Live Music by The Loose Hinges from Nashville, TN

loose_hinges.jpg

The singer/songwriter duo, Eliot Houser and Kris McCarthy, transcend mainstream stereotypes and rise above the Americana militia defining everything contemporary coming out of Music City. Embracing a decidedly sophisticated and eclectic catalogue of mostly pop, rock, and jazz elements, Loose Hinges is unique, warm, and refreshing. 

Taking a cue from the dream pop sound that emerged out of the UK, Loose Hinges moves up and away from their self-titled debut in 2010 to a sound reminiscent of the adult contemporary chart-topping vibe of the 1960s. With McCarthy’s vocals leading the way down a path of silk and seduction, and Houser’s unique song structures, the duo veers off the congested thoroughfare of Americana roots. Loose Hinges can get down in the earthy ethos that is Americana with the best of them, but it’s hardly the sum total of their parts.

Skope Magazine says, “...[the] sky’s the limit for this duo,” and independent promoter, Bill Deutsch adds, “...very seductive, textured and balanced. The vocals are intoxicating.” The Muse’s Muse goes a bit further, “The strength of Loose Hinges is the impressive song-for-song musical exuberance that keeps coming at you.”

The metric by which all exceptional music should be measured is the balance between how the music sounds live versus the studio work. Without a doubt the energy reviewers hear in recordings is unmatched in their live performance. In the alternate, that recorded sound is real, and translates with even more emotion when Loose Hinges takes the stage. There’s tangible chemistry at work on the stage Loose Hinges set. It’s a rare alchemy restoring faith that music is art, and originality ultimately has the final word in that which is meaningful.

OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, October 6th from 6 – 9pm
First Friday music in the Courtyard by Southern Holiday Jazz Band from 7 – 10pm

EXHIBITION DATES: September 25 – October 29
Hailee Potter is a photographer located in Savannah, GA. Belle Nature de Lacoste is a collection of handmade Cyanotypes and Archival Inkjet black and white photographic prints that explore the nature of Lacoste, France.

Peseveretrees explores the dynamic nature of trees as if they were individual people. Their physical characteristics create a metaphor about the struggles of life. Where adaption is found, one can also find growth. By defeating challenges, strength is developed. Nontraditional perspective points and tight framing break the traditional norms of portraiture, creating balance
between chaos and peace. Standing firm on their own, these trees have persevered through many things in their life.

Beautés Bleues explores the Cyanotype printing process of picture making. By coating this archival watercolor paper with ammonium iron citrate and potassium ferricyanide, and using found leaves, branches, feathers and other objects found in nature handmade photographs are created. The images are exposed to the sun, leaving imprints of the objects, turning everything else blue. These handmade images are local to Lacoste, France.

Potter primarily focuses on issues of human perception, identity, and social norms that are present in today’s society. She wants to empower others to see the world in a different light, stripped of society’s expectations, exposing the raw truths of the human condition that are rarely discussed. Furthermore, Potter creates images that question the definitions of portraiture and its perceived meanings of truth. Her style is simple and straightforward, but complex in its process.

Her work falls in between straight portraiture and staged narratives. However, she leaves room for creating tree portraits. She thinks trees tell a story, just like humans do, but in a different way. You can find her work at http://www.haileepotter.com

Acoustic Tuesday: Live Music by Payne Bridges

A note from Payne: Music is something I sort of fell into in the last five years. I found myself being overwhelmed and inspired by different people and situations, and feeling the need to tell those stories through song. Since then, it’s been all about moving forward, taking the next step, and enjoying what music has to offer. Getting lost in lyrics and melodies is now one of my favorite past times, but performing with friends takes things to a whole new level. I’m blown away by the talent surrounding me and the community I find myself in.
