Not to wax too political in a column meant to be for general entertainment, but I think Noah Van Sciver has made a point in this week’s strip that city developers should take to heart as they continue to gut our streets in favor of the latest and greatest in steel and glass.

Franklin Cain-Borgers exhibition “Back Problems” at Corrugate

“Back Problems” will feature five sculptures, including two large-scale works newly created by Cain-Borgers for this show. The pieces were made by pressing house siding into molds, filling the molds with concrete and then removing the siding framework. “It asks what a material is,” Cain-Borgers said. “The siding is plastic that mimics a wood grain, and then the concrete retains that same grain. It’s removing the idea of what a texture can be.”

“Surfaces” group exhibition at Hammond Harkins

This group exhibition features the Columbus debut of Pennsylvania native and NYC artist Alteronce Gumby. The recent Yale University MFA grad is headed to first London and then Paris for a combined 11 months of artist residency (although Hammond Harkins does hope to have Gumby here in early September for a program). Gumby said his recent work is “perfect for this show.” “My paintings have a keen sensibility for gestures, for marks. ‘Surfaces’ is right up my alley,” he said.

Full of Hell plays The Summit

Both lyrically and musically, the bandmates in Full of Hell — guitarist Spencer Hazard, drummer David Bland and bassist Sam DiGristine round out the current lineup — are drawn toward extremes, favoring blistering tempos, grinding instrumentals and growled, grizzled vocals that sound largely inhuman, like David Naughton recorded amid his beastly transition in “An American Werewolf in London.” “I’m not under any illusion about people understanding what I’m saying or reading into the lyrics or getting a message,” Walker said. “But I love singing this style, and I enjoy making the most alien sounds come out of my throat as I possibly can.”
