    Winging It - With candor (and Ebb!) T3 salutes musicals; Angels flutter down at the Bath House

    Ever sat through a show thinking you've seen and heard it all before? The derivative tunes, the hackneyed lyrics. The creative duo Eric Rockwell and Joanne Bogart had--too many times--before deciding a few years ago to take out some comic revenge by ...

    Painting as Petting Zoo - Candace M. Briceo's sewn surfaces are touchy-feely

    The "painting sculptures" and puffy green felt "islands" of Candace M. Briceo are alive with touch. The tactility of her work is at once warranted and unwarranted. The invitation to rub your fingers up against the tiny archipelago on the wall or to ...
