Lost in Cyberspace.

We're back. After having been locked out of our blogs for numerous months we have miraculously found our way back to the dashboard.  It's been a frustrating few months lost in cyberspace. Stay tuned for an update on the current state of the union of nbWorldwide.

Burt Completes Amazing Studio Cleanup.

nbWorldwide is pleased to announce the completion of what might be the most remarkable cleanup and rescue of a studio space to have taken place on the North American continent so far this year. With the help of Sam Isenstein and the Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation, we were able to unearth, organize, catalog, and dispose of 22 years of accumulation at our Chicago headquarters.

We are excited to share our enthusiasm with the newly discovered knowledge that there is indeed a back door, and there are actually uncluttered surfaces to work on. Now that we know where the left-over hardware, tools, and assorted building supplies can be located, we won't have to keep buying the same thing over and over again at the hardware store (sorry about that Home Depot stockholders).

More At The Beverly Art Center.

The show is titled "Out of the West, Art From Oak Park" and features work by Nancy Gardner, Burton Isenstein, Margot McMahon, Elaine Miller, and Kathleen Waterloo.
The Beverly Art Center has a beautiful gallery with lots of natural light. It's one of Chicago's best kept secrets. This image is a small grouping of palm sized "blobs" made by yours truly. Earthenware and glaze.

Where has the year gone?

(We know it's been a while since our last blog post).
This installation and another two groups of plates can be seen at The Beverly Art Center Gallery, 2407 W 111th St, Chicago, IL 60655.
The show runs through Jan 31, 2011.

nbWorldwide Staff Photographer Discovers Evidence Of Intelligent Life At The Beach

On a recent weekend retreat to the Southern shore of Lake Michigan nbWorldwide's staff photographer stumbled upon this cluster of beach stones. Currently we are consulting experts who so far believe that the only possible explanation for this phenomenon is a landing of intelligent extraterrestrial beings.

When questioned about the formation, Dr. Beth Hooven, faculty emeritus at Notre Dame University in South Bend Indiana, exclaimed "Have you seen what people at the beach have been reading this summer ? It's completely impossible that any of these sunbathers have enough intelligence to invent something as unusual as this particular pile of pebbles."
