We Got Almost As Much Press As "Watchmen"

Hey, the Internet knows what it wants! And very clearly, it wants to talk about us. Who are we to stop it? Here's a little recap of all the people who fed our vanity lately. We love you like Matthew Barney loves Vaseline.

The esteemed Hrag Vartanian visited us at Bridge Art Fair and scored a fantastic interview with the force of adorable nature that is Marisa Sage. You can't miss it. You absolutely can't. Just be aware that the same article also covers "Queer Batman" and you may find some of the specific images not safe for work, so save it for when you're back in your cave. Unless your boss is Bruce Wayne or something.

Two Coats of Paint threw us a mention as a highlight of the weekend WGA Event. It was a great night for us, so we hope they had a fun visit!

Of course, if you weren't aware, Artmostfierce had a nice interview with Marisa as well. It's worth checking out, we think. And that's a good lead in to telling you that Marisa's radio interview with WNYU is coming up! We think it is tonight, Wednesday, March 11th, at 7:30pm, but we're not totally sure. The best plan is to just listen constantly until you hear her voice. Just like life.

Finally, we had a visit from Manna From Brooklyn, and we're very happy they liked the show. Always a treat to meet a new blogger!

Remember, Towers & Portals is here for a while yet, so there's plenty of time to visit and then talk about your visit and then visit again.

Like A Bridge Over Troubled Waters, We Had To Lay Us Down

But now we're awake, sort of, and ready to talk about how much fun we had at the Bridge Art Fair last weekend.

Being out amongst our peers is always great, because LtS is all about seeing and being seen. We decided to show off a little by bringing some of our favorite pieces.

Over on this wall, we were rocking Ross, Rachel, Dean and Nicole. It's okay to covet our wall. We understand. Take a closer look.

Ross's digital drawings are always a big hit at the art fairs. You can probably figure out why. Check out his other work too!

Rachel Beach's "Rabbit Hole" got us a lot of attention. And, in case attention is something you haven't been paying, Rachel's solo show, Towers & Portals, is here at the gallery right now. You really need to make time to see it. You know you do.

Making up that arrow-like shape were the cubes of Nicole Stager. We can't get enough of Nicole. She'll also have work on display at the Tribeca 92nd Street Y, starting March 19th, from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. If you'd like to see those fantastic little cubes in person, stop in.

There was a different feeling on the other side of the space, but it was no less wonderful, as you can plainly see.

The work of Dean Goelz is really so much better in person, but these photos will give you a rough idea. Dean's been with us for a while now, and we've blogged about him before, so we won't go into too much detail here. Besides, we think the quality of his work can speak for itself.

Another artist we can say that about is Jenny Morgan. Jenny's just finshed a very successful solo show. In fact, we often found ourselves wishing for a bigger gallery, so we could keep her show up forever!

Jenny's collaborations with David Mramor are up to her usual high standards. We noticed this particular piece catching more than a few eyes. Not even counting the staff.

Our lovely and talented assistants (you can decide for yourself which is which) worked so hard keeping the booth together. So many, many people passed through! It was great to see our friends new and old, and we're already looking forward to next year. Thanks to everybody who came out! Oh, wait, you want to know more about that flamingo painting?

Allison Edge will be our next solo show here at Like the Spice. Her new stuff is so new that we don't even have images ready. So keep an eye on our web page. We're pretty sure that once you can see it, you're gonna love it.
