About Survival (detail)

Price, who is a Space 1026er, will be “showing a collection of brand new screen
prints and mono prints with 4 other artists… 2 are print makers from
Montreal, 1 from the Netherlands, and 1 from Brooklyn,” he said in an email. Price is an artist Libby and I first spotted when he was selling his wares on a 2nd Street sidewalk on a First Friday a couple years ago. He’s really connected now and the work — always good — gets better each time I see it.
