Yellow Jacket is having a celebration of the 13th year of chap books on Saturday, 3/10/18 at the Old Tampa Free Public Library (the oldest library in town!) starting at 4pm. It is located in Tampa Heights at 102 E. 7 Ave, Tampa, 33602.

A haiku from Jeff
Like black, moistened pens,
rowboats glide up to the walls,
signatures ready.


A good resource for y’all – show is over but still, Artists!

57 artists’ works span 3 museums and reflect 4 counties. The Ringling Museum, Museum of Fine Arts St. Petersburg, and Tampa Museum of Art share this exhibit of artists from the Tampa Bay area. All works were made since the beginning of 2016. There hasn’t been a survey of this kind in memory.

Curators of the exhibition and museums joined us today. You can listen back to the interview over there –>

Joining us were

Ringling Museum  ~ Chris Jones, Asst. Curaotor of Photography & New Media
Tampa Museum of Art  ~ Joanna Robotham, Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art, Seth Pevnick & Chief Curator & Curator of Greek & Roman Art
St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Art  ~ Katherine Pill, Curator of Contemporary Art & Robin O’Dell, Curator of the Photographic Collection

Guest juror Diana Nawi, Associate Curator at the Pérez Art Museum Miami participated in the process, to help give a sympathetic to the idea, but not connected to the artist eye to the final selection.

Magnetic Field: Expanding American Abstraction 1960s to Today book & MFA Family Pass (for Art in Your Ear)
Share this:

The art show of the year is at the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg right now, Magnetic Fields

We send you the book, which is the catalogue with essays and pictures of all the work, for the groundbreaking show at the Museum of Fine Arts. African American artists, and especially African American women artists, have been omitted from many accounts of American abstract art. You can look at it before, during or after your visit to the show with your MFA Family Pass (2 adults & up to 4 kids). 

This is about $120 value. Big thanks to the MFA for their donation!

More about the exhibit:

Magnetic Fields is the first U.S. presentation dedicated exclusively to the formal and historical dialogue of abstraction by women artists of color. The exhibition has also garnered major support and merit through the reception of prestigious grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The exhibition is organized by Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, Missouri, and co-curated by Erin Dziedzic, director of curatorial affairs at Kemper Museum, and Melissa Messina, independent curator and curator of the Mildred Thompson Estate, Atlanta, Georgia.

Magnetic Fields focuses a long-overdue lens on the contributions of women artists of color within the lineage of non-representational art making. As the first museum exhibition of its kind, Magnetic Fields aims to spark more broad and inclusive presentations of American abstraction going forward. Intergenerational in scope, this exhibition and the accompanying catalogue amplify the formal and conceptual connections among twenty-one artists born between 1891 (Alma Thomas) and 1981 (Abigail DeVille), many presented in conversation with one another for the first time.

Co-curators Erin Dziedzic and Melissa Messina stated, “As curators, we are honored to present this incredible, intergenerational group of artists.” They added, “This exhibition is intended to be a platform to further their visibility, as well as to generate more inclusive conversations about the history of American abstraction that consider the accomplishments and contributions of women artists of color going forward.”

New Courtney Barnett Cd Tell Me How You Really Feel – for Art in Your Ear/IMM
only 1 available
Share this:

Hot off the presses, Courtney Barnett’s new cd expands her sympathetic, deadpan rock’n’roll take on the world.  From Pitchfork:

The most Courtney Barnett line on Courtney Barnett’s second album is a quote from an online troll. “He said, ‘I could eat a bowl of alphabet soup and spit out better words than you,’” she recalls, on “Nameless Faceless,” and then offers an uncharacteristically cocksure response in a shruggy sing-song: “But you didn’t.” The anonymous critic’s putdown assumes that Barnett’s witty early EPs and debut album cemented her style, making it ripe for parody. Abandoning social realism and polysyllabic razzle-dazzle, Tell Me How You Really Feel in fact overhauls almost everything we’ve come to expect from Barnett as a writer while vindicating everything she promised of herself on her 2015 debut LP: “Put me on a pedestal and I’ll only disappoint you.”

Tell Me How You Really Feel Songs
City Looks Pretty
Need A Little Time
Nameless, Faceless
I’m Not Your Mother, I’m Not Your Bitch

It’s true, isn’t it. We all have dreams, and sometimes when we are sitting at our desk we have to pretend we aren’t thinking about [ fill in the blank ].

It’s okay! Put this on your desk, or next to your bed, or anywhere, and you won’t have to pretend anymore! Thank you from WMNF & Art in Your Ear & the Hostess Who Loves YOU the Mostess! (One per pledge please.) (Say that fast!)

Pair of Andy Nukes Stickers for Art in Your Ear
Share this:

I love these stickers, and hope you do too. Andy Nukes is a righteous artist who made these and other ones. There is the quite true, and slightly profane, Ten Commandments.
And the other truly accurate Jesus would have a problem with this, as bombs drop. I might even throw in a Peace sticker, if you don’t mind.

They measure about 3-4″.
