This week we welcome Carol Radsprecher - @cradsprecher. A longtime painter, Radsprecher discovered the wonders of digital image-making and found that media well suited to her need to make a succession of rapidly evolving narrative images based on distorted representations of the human body, especially the female body.

This week we are taking you about 2.5 hours north to Chatham. We (obviously) love a good day trip, but there is something extra satisfying about escaping the city’s summer humidity and stickiness; a way to reset, if you will.
Automats first appeared in the U.S. in 1902, and while they all but disappeared, everything comes back in style eventually. NYC restauranteur Stratis Morfogen recently reintroduced the concept with Brooklyn Dumpling Shop - @brooklyndumplingshop
This week we are featuring work from JoAnne Lobotsky, @jlobotsky, a Bronx-based artist who grew up in a working-class family on a small farm in upstate New York. She graduated with a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in NYC with honors and also studied at the Art Students League in NYC. She has been a practicing artist for over three decades. Imperfection, abjectness and roughness coinciding with beauty and a kind of humble elegance are the main goals for her work. She often uses non-traditional materials in her work to achieve texture and the element of surprise.
