Shift Coffee has established itself as the essential “slow pour” coffee shop of Denton, Texas, at which you can experience the uncommon art of coffee in a comfortable atmosphere. This Sunday, December 15, 2013, Shift will up its game with a salon style art show featuring artists local to Denton, myself included, for one night only, from 7-10pm. Adding to the evening of art will be a drawing through which you could win paintings by the inimitable Kelsey Anne Heimerman and your very own Hunter Wild at 9pm. Lose yourself in the art, find yourself in the coffee.
Glasstire is presenting Dave Hickey this coming weekend (12/14/2013) at Rice University. Hickey is one of America’s great intellectual art heroes, and the author of “The Invisible Dragon: Four Essays on Beauty,” “Air Guitar: Essays on Art and Democracy,” and his newest, “Pirates and Farmers,” all of which will be available (and signable) during his appearance according to Glasstire’s page. You’ll be able to (see and) hear him in Sewall Hall, Room 301, at 2pm.
