Yesterday I saw a post on my friend Jim Harper's Facebook page about a new PBS TV series beginning this Fall nationally. The show is called "A Craftsman's Legacy". Jim has a custom made motorcycle crafted by Eric Gorges and it is incredible....We love Eric's work and now we get to travel with him across the US looking at the best craftspeople!
Each 30-minute episode will follow Eric Gorges on a quest to discover true craftsmen in today’s world. Traveling across America, Eric will be interviewing men and women that understand the importance of craftsmanship. Every episode will explain the history of an old-world craft and the importance in the building of America.
Did a bit of phone chat with the man himself Eric yesterday...We have a lot of art taste in common....Eric told me a bit about meeting some of the craftsmen and women his has profiled on his show. Eric says their skills are fantastic and now we can't wait until October to see the 13 Episodes.... Watch a clip of the new show below!
To quote JIM HARPER: Please mark it down on your calendars, Friends. Saturday mornings beginning October 4th at 11:30am on WTVS Detroit Public Television. Check this page for air dates and times in your area. This is gonna be so great!.

The Royal Oak Clay, Glass and Metal Show features an amazing diversity of work within the flame worked mediums. Patrons are often surprised to see just how different artists are able to add their own spin on creative functional and decorative items. Our jurors work to find the most diversity possible so that you can see everything from basic plates to elaborate installations.

Each year as many as twelve artists are selected to demonstrate so that you can more fully understand the work you are seeing. Live glass blowing, wheel throwing and metal working make this event unique.
Music inspired, science fiction and fantasy combined in a way that revolutionized poster art of the Psychedelic 1960's-era. Famous for his rock posters, The Psychedelic Rock Art of Carl Lundgren, a Detroit, Michigan based artist, showcases his posters which were as important to the Detroit Music and Art history as were the music legends themselves; The Who, Jefferson Airplane and Pink Floyd to name a few.
The book's foreword is written by Mitch Ryder, who was lead vocalist of a Detroit 1960's rock group The Detroit Wheels. The introduction is by Russ Gibb, a former radio personality and rock promoter from Dearborn, Michigan, who played a major role in the late sixties/early seventies Motor City music scene. Whether looking for something fun, entertaining or reminiscent, this book has it all! The Psychedelic Rock Art of Carl Lundgren presents Carl's posters in a unique way that will evoke emotion and memories.
BEHIND THE ART "Bookies, Detroit 1979" Is a new drawing by Kent Myers, a rendition of the scene at Detroit's famous early punk rock nightclub (and parking lot) at the height of the era.
