"Fish Here, Get Your Fish!"

Just a few weeks ago when autumn seemed a million days away, Brooklyn played host to the Renegade Craft Fair.  If you were one of the many walking through the maze of artisan booths you might have stumbled upon what at first glance looked like the world’s only odorless fish market.

Fake fish on fake ice and her real dog Sheila.

Nic Annette Miller, a print maker from Utah now based out of Brooklyn, set up shop with her new series of seafood woodcut sculpture prints— Campbell’s Coho Salmon, Ayres’ Largemouth Bass, Hayley’s Halibut, and Sebastian’s Shrimp.

Nic has been creating hand printed animal sculptures for some years now.  Her process in handcrafting begins with researching her latest choice of species, then hand carving her desired image on wood.  She then produces a series of prints, all slightly different from the one before, and adheres them to a slab of wood before cutting out each individual print and adding watercolor accents.

Other sculpture prints by Nic include blue birds, black birds, robins, buffalo, bear, deer, moose, elk, and… Chewbacca.

These woodcut sculpture prints and other work by Nic Annette Miller can be viewed on her website: http://www.nicannettemiller.com/

Follow her on Instagram @Nicamiller to catch her exciting posts of new work.

And in case you missed the Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn, do not fret!  The Manhattan Renegade Craft Fair (which is free to also attend) will take place November 15 + 16 at the Metropolitan Pavilion.  You can find more information about the fair and its other locations by clicking HERE.

Heels aren’t just shoes. They can make women feel powerful, sexy, tall, intimidating, or a whole host of things a shoe shouldn’t really be able to provide. 

And to the curators at the Brooklyn Museum, high heels are art. 

Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe combines intense thigh-high erotic boots with glass slippers and a heel hat, in addition to shoes from prolific designers and historical periods. 

Heels are a part of history, exhibit curator Lisa Small said in a question-and-question, so the exhibit is actually “a form of material culture that can reveal quite a bit about the personal, social, and cultural concerns of the era it comes from.”

The exhibit, which runs through February 15, hosts shoes from Christian Louboutin, Zaha Hadid X United Nude and Alexander McQueen, among others. 

The collection also brought to the forefront just how much high heels mean to women’s lives.

A wall at the end of the exhibit is filled with Polaroids of women in heels, accompanied by words like “ouch,” “control,” “sneakers > heels” and “sexy.”
