Fairborn, Ohio, local Cherry Fullam’s display at Dayton’s Side Show made my heart go pitter patter.

Featuring and blackened heart, a stained glass heart, a heart seemingly locked away in bands of iron, and the much beloved and recognizable video game heart container, th...

Interweaving amazingly detailed insects into vividly decorated tarot cards, The Six-Legged Tarot is a project that can be appreciated even by this squeamish entomophobe. Christina Lewis’ depiction of these little creepy crawlers on immaculate nature scapes is a testame...

Gary Mitchell’s mastery of the camera is nothing less than astounding. With a focus on nude photography, his work is magnificent and a true artistic feat. There is nothing remotely crass or perverse in the nature of Mitchell’s art, only vision and beauty.
