Crystal Frontier

Crystal Frontier

Sonoran Glass School is the only place in the desert southwest that offers lessons in and provides facilities for each of these disciplines.

Answering Machine

Live Theatre Workshop's production of The Lady With All the Answers allows us to get a literally up-close glimpse of the down-to-earth advice mill that Ann Landers was for decades grinding people's problems into flour for their daily bread.

The Show Must Go On

They did it!

A Whole New Works

It's no small thing that the Tucson Pima Arts Council provides the opportunity to individual artists to receive grant funding unattached from a formal group or troupe or collective.

Flappers and Floppers

Once again, the Rogue Theatre has invented a theater presentation adapted from a work of fiction.

Reveling in Rain

The Day Before Raices Taller's annual monsoon show opened, a real chubasco drenched Tucson, showering the city with more rain than it had seen on one day in 118 years.

Curtain Call

How could it have come to this?

The Artist’s Eye

Bea Mason doesn't have a rule that employees in her framing shop have to be artists. It just turns out that most of the people who've worked for her over the years are painters or photographers or architects.

Unbound, Unwritten

They come in all shapes and sizes—ages, too. Some seem pretty comfortable and others, a bit nervous. They've all come voluntarily and with purpose. They leave, having bravely shared a bit of themselves, to friends and strangers.

The Quantified Life

The current show, Tucson 3 Ways: A Foray into Digital Alchemy, is another big installation, again made by out-of-towners. This time, it's a pair of Los Angeles-based artists, Steven Joyner and Jason Pilarski, who operate as the duo MachineHistories. Unlike their predecessors, though, they've barely set foot in Tucson.

Dare to CREAM

C.R.E.A.M. (cash rules everything around me) is a to-the-point mantra for a business, but the Wu-Tang Clan song of the same name has been a steady source of inspiration for Patrick Foley, who, along with Chris Hall, started CREAM Design and Print four months ago

By Design

Graduates of Arizona's two major university dance programs will go head to head at a rare summer dance concert this weekend at ZUZI Theater.

Wax On

"My vision for the space is definitely disco roller rink," Marina Cornelius, the founder of Floor Polish says. "I've always thought of it as a place that can have a little bit of showbiz, a little bit of glamour to it."

Learning Curve

Some things are best learned through trial and error. Others, not so much. Wood turning, with its reliance on obscure tools and heavy machinery, likely falls into the latter camp, but that didn't stop local artist Jon Mavko from giving it a go.

Reality Check

Over the last several months the Acting Innocent Theatre Company has produced a season of three shows that tackled some heavy-duty issues.

Skin Deeper

Miles Conrad imagines the body as a thing of pulsing beauty, where white ligaments shoot over pumping red corpuscles, and blue-black veins glisten.
