Puppy Attack bearded cutie!
While your mama might have taught you how to crochet some booties for you ken doll, I bet she never taught you the in and outs of crocheting your anatomically correct parts. Us gays are NEVER short on ideas!
Jack Davis’s crocheted penises will grace Magnet’s gallery wall throughout January, with an opening reception on Friday the 7th at 8pm.
Davis’s three-dimensional penises are made from yarns that are cotton, silk, wool and synthetic. Sometimes he recycles yarn from by taking apart thrift-store sweaters and a few yarns are hand dyed. Some penises are crocheted from found string. While there is an element of humor in his work, he does take his work seriously. Whenever Davis talks about his work with people, it isn’t long before they start laughing about questions like “How are your penises hung?” He uses the word “penis” instead of “dick” or “cock” specifically because I think it’s a more serious term.
Back in the old days when he entered art shows using slides, there were several times when he was accepted into a show, but his work was rejected when it arrived after the gallery realized they weren’t crocheted abstract forms, the pieces really were penises.
The reception is free and open to all ages.
Now I cannot even pretend that I am objective on how great 3rd Ward’s Membership Community is.
I became an unlimited member about 6 months ago to help round out my web skills and my life has never been the same.
Working for a Tibetan Non-Profit at the time the evening classes, practical subjects offered and the short distance from the L train were the initial draw.
A lot of the skill set I used at the time were things I learned on my own or on the fly between fund raising campaigns and computer work.
All I was expecting was take a class or two and continue the selfless grind that is working for a non-profit. I called to register for a class and it was suggested I take a tour of the space before I made a commitment and see the benefits of becoming a member. I was informed that if I did take a tour I would receive a $50 credit towards my first class.

I am starting a movement and giving props to non art object and will be objectifying them. The word art, artist is used way to loosely these days. Unintentional or Accidental Art. Does taking a picture of something instantly make it art?
Finally a reality show I’ll have no trouble NOT watching.
No Im not going to pull out my Birkenstocks (although they are comfy) or cover myself in patchouli. For the last 48 hrs hours I’ve been obsessed Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeroes, listening to their many versions of the song Home. There appears to be about 12 members and resembles a side show variety act (PLENTY OF BEARDS). Jade Castrinos (vocals) gives a physical performance as great as her vocals. Her seizure-bopping-LSD-trance dancing captures my full attention.
