    Flower Power - Blossoms provide the inspiration for contemporary work at Robischon and Sandy Carson.

    Using plants and flowers as source material for artwork is definitely an old-timey pursuit whose roots (pardon the pun) go back to the dawn of the Greco-Roman era. Here we are in the 21st century, and many contemporary painters -- not just realists -...

    Heavy Petal - Steel Magnolias is in full bloom at Miners Playhouse.

    Somewhere in the 1970s, we learned that women could like each other, that female friendship was precious, and that society's insistence that women's concerns were inherently more trivial than the concerns of men was blind and stupid. Though she might...

    Exit the Matrix - The Matrix: Path of Neo is more chop suey than chopsocky.

    Pop-culture pundits generally fall into two camps: those who think entertainment encourages a nation of knuckle-draggers, and those who say it's actually making us smarter. In the case of Atari's The Matrix: Path of Neo, both sides have a point. L...
