Featured Artist: Blair Bradshaw

Blair Bradshaw's paintings and constructions tend to focus on the graphic simplifications of larger, more complicated organizational systems. Whether it's the periodic table, references to mass transportation, or simplified illustrations of war planes, submarines and tanks, his work uses graphical representations to bury the intricate vocabulary of each system.

Recently Blair's work has been featured in the New York Times, Scientific American, and an Absolut Vodka advertising campaign.

Featured Musician: Mike McCall

My music is focused mostly around Spanish Guitar, Flamenco Guitar, Classical and fingerstyle guitar. Some of the music I perform is lively and upbeat, while other pieces are very mellow and beautiful. I write my own pieces but I also love doing covers of songs such as "Besame Mucho", "La Llorona" and "Malaguena" just to name a few.
