The summer issue of A&P, our art and performance quarterly, doesn't come out until next week, so I can't link to anything about the 2013 finalists at this moment. But I can show you these drawings of all of their names. The names alone fill me with happiness. How can you look at this list and not feel pride in our town? It was Stranger editorial designer Mike Force who had the idea to hand letter each one in a different style.

If you want to meet these artists, I'd recommend you come to our beach-themed A&P party (in a non-beach space!! Because why not?!) next Thursday. Jen Graves will be there, dressed as a lifeguard. I might go as a palm tree.
