Daddy Kool Records and KEEP ST. PETE LIT are coming together to showcase zines in monthly workshops at the Morean Art Center in St. Pete..
April's Workshop: In this collage-based class, you will learn the meaning of how to keep it Noodle, how to make your content relevant, and how to maximize your resources to make your own publication take off from inception.
About the Instructor:
Eva Avenue published the first issue of the Nightly Noodle Monthly on Oct 4, 2009 in Albuquerque, NM after having spent the previous two months in a Barcelona hospital recovering from a near-fatal viper bite from on top of a mountain. Nightly Noodle Monthly is in itself a work of art, the rock and roll of printed literature, documenting contemporary art history and the people of today as it all unfolds in the context of 21st century America. Four months into publishing the Noodle monthly, it was rated second in Albuquerque'sWeekly Alibi for Best Local Zine, beat out by the decades-long incumbent, Wig Wam Bam.
Inspired by my fave drawing of a chair I bought from pussy power street artist Andrea Cook in NYC for $5, I impulsively began drawing funky chairs for people (but mostly for me!) who love the personality of vintage armchairs but don't have the room to be constantly buying chairs. Use these chairs as inspiration to reupholster your own furniture and discover your own style of outrageous!

I have an essay on smell, that I subsequently published in the Nightly Noodle Monthly, in a zine accompanying the art the The Utopian Body, also featuring the dopest video-paintings and painting sculptures from my art homie Stacey Holder. The zine has essays on the five senses from five different writers, and three visual artists are exhibiting in the show. Opening is Fri. Nov. 4 at 7pm. Runs through Sunday - pick up a copy of the zine!

An innovative art class hair performance! (It's not low-budget, it's art.)
Tuesday Aug. 30
7pm till around 8:47
We will learn how to cut our own hair, or friend's hair. You don't have to cut hair tho - we are experimenting with hair sculpture too! On your own head, you can use bobby pins, sticks, flowers, cloth, anything at all really, temporary hair spray paint, and hair gel or hair paste to bring your hair to an innovative work of art. Bring your favorite hair tools and I will also provide tools for doing hair sculpture. Not with hair on the ground. With your real hair on your head. Like a geisha or a number of tribes in Africa - they use bits of nature and objects to create headpieces and take their hair to the next level. You don't even need hair - your bald head is a perfect starting point if you have jewels, long grass or some paint!
St. Pete: Why Hell or Paris?
Eva: I'm surprised i get this question so often, cause to me I was giving a very straight-forward name. I mean, as a generally theistic world, it all boils down to Hell or Paris. Good or bad? Both or neither? Your haircut should reflect the confusing melange of views across the globe, thus creating a beautiful explosion of hair and meaning and scissors and twigs and the life-force and scissors. Your hair should be the canvas on which you take out all your doubt and misplaced aggression, and I should be there to cheer you on as you lose your mind.
Paris has traditionally been the epicenter of style It represents, in the American mind, not only an elitist sense of perfection, but also of unattainability - a material and moral tower stretching to the sky. A modern tower of Babel, as man attempts to usurp the poewrs of Hair to create and to shape beauty in Hair's own image.
Hell is the opposite, specifically, the eso-hair-ic, rushy hair-o-ism of the ranger, cutting his own hair in the desert.
ST. PETE: What is hair?
ME: Nobody knows. .......................................................... nobody knows ......
ST. PETE: I am a normal yuppie and I don't want to do anything crazy to my hair. Is this class still for me?
ME: This event will feature guest artists and hair cutting and transformation experts.
For the closing reception of Eva Avenue's "Paintings from LALa Land" show of paintings she did in Los Angeles, along with April Hartley's show "That Child of Always", they will both give an art talk starting at 7pm in St. Pete, FL at Studio@620 (620 1st Ave S.).
