SPACE 1026
Spaceman, a print by Drive By Press

Space 1026 tops our agenda with a print extravaganza that includes printing “in the gutter” according to the press release. We don’t know what that means, but we love the way it sounds. This is a collaborative printmaking exhibition
featuring works by Cannonball Press, Howling Print Studio, Drive By Press
and many, many more! So we will be there. Many affordable prints will be for sale so bring some bucks and get one or two.

Vox’s goal is to open for First Friday at 6 p.m.

Hollywood poster treatment for the one night performance Breakfast at Tiffany’s Redux at Copy. Is this nostalgia for the 60s or what? BAT is a 1961 movie.

Impresario Nick Paparone at Copy has gone Hollywood, with a one night performance he’s organized — Breakfast at Tiffany’s Redux– with music and costumes and presumably some skinny kids sachaying around with champagne glasses and cigarette holders and looking like Audrey Hepburn. It’s Hollywood north of Vine and should be fun.

-Guitar by Adam Cooper
-Costume by Elsa Shadley

Charles Burwell,
White Clusters & Blue Figures, 2007
Oil on Canvas, 16 ” x 16″

Charles Burwell’s layered prints and Suzie Brandt‘s layered installation at Bridgette Mayer Gallery look good too. We are especially happy to see Burwell’s debut exhibit with Mayer. The work is a great fit with the gallery’s aesthetic.
