Towers On Fire: Jimmy Cauty's ESTATE

Jimmy Cauty's 1:25 scale representation of a British housing estate is currently occupying a carpark in Edinburgh. Dave Pollock investigates. On the north side of Edinburgh, on the border of the Muirhouse and Pilton housing schemes, the blades of a chinook attack helicopter shudder overhead, spreading panic below. In the concrete tower blocks around us, signal fires burn and decay and destruction is everywhere. Floors and walls are smashed into rubble, unattended televisions glow in the darkness, the remains of an ad hoc hospital are visible.

Where in Chicago can you rent a yacht, monitor barges unloading gravel, see red and white rotating cement trucks head out to a job site, watch cowhides treated at Chicago’s remaining tannery, and experience world-class art within two blocks of one another? And if you’re lucky, you might also see a Great Blue Heron or a flock of cormorants.

Mural brings life to museum storage container

SANDPOINT — In one corner, leaves and native plants fill the canvas. In other colorful flowers beckon bees that playfully swoop in. While a bright spot of color that effortlessly fits into its surroundings at Lakeview Park, the mural created by local artist Savannah Pitts also disguises what used to be a generic 40-foot by 8-foot corrugated metal container purchased by the Bonner County History Museum to help address its storage needs.

Studio Visits: Kostas Seremetis

Kostas Seremetis doesn’t just make art, he “jams.” The New York-based artist redefines the aforementioned musical term of improvising with other musicians, especially in jazz or blues, in his artistic approach. Brandishing a paint brush or pencil as his instruments, the artist loses himself in his work as a musician would if he were engaging in an uninterrupted, solo melody.

Art gallery attendants are usually occupied by ensuring that a respectful silence is maintained and that no one strays too close to priceless masterpieces. But from Saturday, staff at the Tate Modern’s new exhibition inviting visitors to sketch on the gallery’s floor will be tasked with monitoring the drawings in case some who take part are tempted to daub the kind of rude graffiti normally seen on the back of lavatory doors.
