Remember when you were a kid and you'd eat pretty much anything? Well, that's not exactly the guiding spirit behind Taste Addison inviting dozens of artists and craftsmen to peddle their wares next weekend, but even though you shouldn't bite into the work of woodworkers, glass-blowers, etc, you are encouraged to buy it. Beyond Gregg Studios and Mistura Timepieces, here are a few of weekend's best:
Daryoush Ababaf: The Iranian-born inlaid-wood artist covers all manner of awesome, from Michael Jordan and Steven Spielberg, to re-creations of European paintings, to lions and eagles -- the animals, not the franchises that between them have as many Super Bowl wins as Steven Spielberg. Get all Ababaf's wood right here.
Metal Motif: From a woman who spent decades in sales, advertising, and graphic design, these 3D metal sculptures for yard or wall include dragons and monkeys that hang from trees, orange longhorns & purple horned frogs, and even peacocks and cacti, signifying NBC's Friday-Wednesday dry spell. Get heavy with her metal at her site.
MF Fine Art: Monica Fallini uses bold strokes to create a 3D effect across her literally hundreds of paintings, notably the Deep Ellum water tower, and Club DaDa, a good place to hit if you're still into eating rock. Check out her bidness here.
