“Amer Kobaslija – Paintings,” The New Orleans Art Review

Amer Kobaslija: Sputnik Sweetheart of New Orleans and the End of the World, 2007. Oil on panels, 85” high.

THE ROMANTIC IMAGE of the solitary painter, alone in a garret studio, strenuously working at a paint-spattered easel in the dead of night, certainly persists in many imaginations. That painter is charged, obsessed with the work – drunk on wine or turpentine, weary from extended periods of insomnia, living in relative filth. Despite the perceived stink of such a scene, it is an engaging thought that captures the creative vision of the uninitiated into studio practice in painting. From paintings by Amer Kobaslija at Arthur Roger Gallery, it appears that the imagined situation is not much different from standard, fanciful mental wanderings. Read More

“Vic and Nat’ly cartoonist Bunny Matthews announces he has brain cancer,” Gambit

BUNNY MATTHEWS
Bunny Matthews' first "Vic and Nat'ly" cartoon as it appeared in 1982.

Matthews, whose cartoons appeared in Gambit for years (along with every other local publication), has provoked, skewered and amused the New Orleans arts, music and media communities in cartoons and print since making his debut in the now-defunct Figaro in the 1970s. Two compilations of Vic and Nat’ly were published in the 1980s, featuring the flamboyant, buxom Nat’ly and greasy, cigarette-ash dripping Vic (whom Matthews said was modeled after former New Orleans Mayor Vic Schiro).
