Mark Ryden To Yak It Up At SF Moma

It's about time some "contemporary" museums got contemporary. SF Moma is finally taking notice of home-grown, fantastic artist Mark Ryden. Not that they are exhibiting his works like they should have already. But they are having him do a book signing on August 12th, of his latest works and book titled "The Snow Yak Show".

Kristen Cumings on Rachel Ray

Yahoot! Finally, some food art on Rachel Ray! Last year, Eclectix tried to get Rachel to check out some of the art and artists in the "Eat It'' exhibit but never heard back. It would have made an interesting show and a nice break from the usual recipe routine. Ray finally did a segment with the wonderful mistress of the jellybean, artist Kristen Cumings, famous of late for her "Jelly Belly Mona Lisa". 
Check out the Ray segment here

Kristen also has a ton of sweet art that isn't made of jelly beans but actual paint. One of my faves from the "Dementions" Eclectix exhibit is her cyborg "Calculated", below...
