with live poetry and part of the South FIRST FRIDAYS Art Walk
We love zines! This is our 8th “Art of Zines” show over the past 16 years and like the past exhibits, we will have hundreds of zines on view; but this year it will be a show of zines from all over the world; PLUS there will be a limited supply of exhibition zines available for sale so you can add them to your own collection and support the subculture. (Pricing varies from $1.$20. and is first come first served until we are sold out.) The legendary V. Vale will be present with his RESearch Publications in the gallery as will the incomparable Tiny Splendor.
While you peruse these DIY publications; Mighty Mike McGee & friends will be performing live poetry readings on the half hour from 7:30pm thru 10:30pm.
