The show opens Jan. 5 from 5 to 8 p.m. as part of the monthly art walk and continues through Jan. 28. Gallery A3’s hours are Wednesday through Sundays from 1 to 7 p.m.

I have been thinking about the work of Aaron Storck and Nathalie Djurberg a lot lately.


Artists and Arts Organizations and Free Schoolers, and community members and...... I think it would be good to get a copy of Phone Book 3 for your reference library. This lovely directory (more than directory really) contains essays and information that helps guide one when looking to connect with independent art spaces, programming, and projects from across the US. It is available in hard copy and pdf.


"PHONEBOOK 3 is a directory of independent art spaces, programming, and projects throughout the United States and a collection of critical essays and practical information written by the people who run them. PHONEBOOK 3 includes artist-run spaces, public programming, unconventional residencies, alternative schools, and community resources; all of the projects that form and support art ecologies across the nation, as well as historical documents marking their past. Featuring essays and documents from Group Material, Renny Pritikin, Susan Sakash, FEAST Brooklyn, Ox-bow, Faheem Majed, Chances Dances, Paul Durica, Dara Greenwald, Amy Franceschini, Pilot TV, Jon Brumit and Sarah Wagner, PLAND, Andy Sturdevant, Robby Herbst and more."
