With Arcades Project (which was a smashing success if I do say so myself – pictures coming soon!) now out of the way – I can return my attention to scoping out other happenings, shows and events of interest with regards to the local, regional and global art scene. As for the local, Ithaca artist Josh Sperling recently mounted an ambitious new show which takes place at all seven Gimme Coffee locations during the month of May. Titled Compliance, this new series combines government regulated Hazardous Material labels arranged in intricate patterns. These objects are meant to invoke a stark contrast between the beauty of the overall composition and the dangerous content that these labels represent.
