Particular art

Lansing-area art galleries offer candy for eye and brain in May

by Jonathan Griffith
It’s not uncommon for an untrained eye to question the skill involved in an abstract work of art. Overlooking any subtext or form, some people may snicker to themselves that a child could produce such a piece. But “Reductive Uncertainty” at (SCENE) Metrospace, one of many opening exhibits at Lansing’s First Sunday Gallery Walk last weekend, features highly conceptual prints and sculptures by a cyclotron physicist — hardly child’s play.

Blue material

Williamston artist’s sculpture sparks orgy of debate in sleepy college town

by Lawrence Cosentino
Williamston sculptor Mark Chatterley´s primordial, rough-skinned ceramic figures inhabit private homes, galleries and public squares, from New York to South Korea. Last week, a cozy clinch of Chatterley´s “blue people” fired up a small revolution closer to home, in the mid-size town of Adrian, about 60 miles southeast of Lansing.

Open house pays tribute to beloved LCC photography professor

by Lawrence Cosentino
Longtime Lansing Community College photography Professor Steve Beck was famous for being easygoing, but there´s one thing he hated to hear: “I´ll fix that in post.” Beck´s directive, “do it in the camera now,” went beyond technical advice to become a life lesson for hundreds of students. Like a frosty spider web poised to melt at sunrise, life gives you one exposure at best.

Dropping the other Hsu

Young pianist brings mature skills to Lansing Symphony season finale

by Lawrence Cosentino
Andrew Hsu hasn´t touched Robert Schumann´s epic concerto since he performed it seven years ago with the Oakland Symphony, but the guest soloist at tonight’s Lansing Symphony season finale will revisit the piece with the mature soul of a man deep in his advanced teenage years. Did I mention that Hsu is only 19?

2014 Top of the Town Final Five Nominees

by City Pulse Staff
“It was an honor just being nominated.” That, traditionally, is what the losers say from the wings through clenched teeth and barely concealed contempt. But in the case of the City Pulse/News 6/MLive Lansing Top of the Town Awards, a nomination is a significant distinction all its own. Every name you see on the next 11 pages is a tribute to the best of everything that makes the Capital city so … capital, from Grand Ledge to Williamston, and from DeWitt to Dimondale.

Schuler vs. Schuler

Chelsea Handler in Okemos, Christopher Moore in Eastwood on Saturday

by Bill Castanier
A funny thing happened on the way to the book signing. Chelsea Handler, comedian, author and late night talk show host, and Christopher Moore, author of 13 comedic novels, have been scheduled for stops in the Lansing area on the same day and time — 2 p.m. Saturday — at both local Schuler Books & Music locations. Moore will speak and sign books at Eastwood Towne Center and Handler will sign at Meridian Mall. Schuler is taking this literary meteor shower in stride and expects both events to be packed with standing room only for fans of these New York Times best-selling authors.

After 29 years, Lansing comedy club kills the spotlight

by ALLAN I. ROSS
Wednesday, April 30 — Last weekend, stand-up comic Carlos Mencia took the stage at Connxtions Comedy Club, 2900 N. East St. on Lansing’s north side. Since the club opened in 1985, thousands of aspiring and professional comedians had stood in that exact spot under the club’s spotlight — pre-“Home Improvement” Tim Allen, pre-“Tonight Show” Jay Leno, post-“Tom Green Show” Tom Green — but Mencia has a singular distinction among them: He was the last act that will ever perform there.
