Cold Hands, Warm Heart

The staff of Larryville Artists are huddled together in our drafty offices during this cold snap.  Some are drinking coffee to stay warm, others are wrapped in blankets.  One brave staff member has gone outside to shovel snow.  However cold it may be outside, our hearts are warm inside. We are always prepared to bring you wonderful news about the art and literature scene of Lawrence.

Good Reads
Now is a wonderful time to snuggle with a book while drinking cocoa.  Here are a few suggestions that made some lists for top best art books of 2013:

"The World Atlas of Street Art and Graffiti"

(Artwork by Tec, Pedro Perelman, Chu/Photo by Tec)
The ambitious street art book sets out to become the definitive reference guide on international street art, covering artists hiding in all corners of the globe. From Shepard Fairey's iconic work in California to Tima Radya's political musings across Russia to Os Gemeos' magical characters sprinkled around Brazil, the anthology of murals and more illuminates the visual beauty of street art, as well as the rich history behind it.

"100 Illustrators"
Edited by Steven Heller and Julius Wiedemann, "100 Illustrators" is based off the Illustration Now! series, which profiles draftsmen across the world, exploring the career trajectories and oeuvres of illustration's finest. For "100 Illustrators," Heller narrowed a list of 600 possible artists included in the series over the years to a final roster of names like Mirko Ilić, Anita Kunz, and Christoph Niemann.

We love this photo of Catherine Ries.  Ries is the gallery manager of the Strecker-Nelson Gallery in Manhattan, Kansas. She studied studio art at Concordia in St. Paul and currently lives in Manhattan, Kansas.
