We welcome the work of Camille Hempel long-time Brooklyn-based jeweler and shop owner who recently relocated to Minneapolis.  CM has created a joyous lapel-pin project: Love Medals.

Inspired by the challenge of making Valentines gifts for her gender-fluid loves, the pins

resolved the conundrum of what can be gifted — and meaningful — to anyone. Her work will be displayed and for sale between 3-7pm. And then we crank up our anniversary celebration.  

Come join us for all of these events. We couldn’t have made it a great year without you!

Ed Askew, Dylan Angell, Jaye Bartell

Reading at Feels NYC March 28th, 2019

Ed Askew is a painter and singer-songwriter who lives in New York City. Born in Stamford, Connecticut, he moved to New Haven to study painting at Yale Art School in 1963 and took up, more or less, permanent residence there until leaving for New York in 1987.

After graduating from art school in 1966, Askew was called up for the draft. Not feeling particularly enthusiastic about going to war at age 26 (the Navy tried to convince him that he should apply for officer training!), he looked for a teaching job and found work at a private prep school in Connecticut. It was while teaching he started making songs; he also acquired his Martin Tiple at this time. "I must have written 25 songs that semester; all of the material on Unicorn and possibly some stuff on Little Eyes."

The singer-songwriter moved to New York for a few months n 1967 where he met Bernard Stolman of ESP Disk', who offered him a contract. Between 1968 and 1986, Ed lived, mostly, in New Haven; doing occasional shows with his band, and later doing solo shows there.

Around 1987, Ed moved to New York City, where he continues to write and record songs, and occasionally perform.

Dylan Angell is a North Carolinian who is currently based in Queens, New York. In 2016 he released the book, An Index of Strangers Whom I Will Never Forget A-Z, via his Basic Battles Books imprint. He has collaborated on two books with photographer Erin Taylor Kennedy; 2017’s I'll Just Keep On Dreaming And Being The Way I Am and 2018’s Beyond the Colosseum. He has been published in Fanzine, Fluland, Parhelion, The Travelin’ Appalachians Revue and Sleaze Magazine.

Jaye Bartell was born in Massachusetts, has lived in Asheville, NC and Buffalo, NY, and currently lives in NYC. He releases music through Sinderlyn Records, including Loyalty (2015) and Light Enough (2016), and In a Time of Trouble a Wild Exultation (2017). He was especially active with poetry in Asheville and Buffalo, during which times he released several books independently and through House Press.


Art Opening | February 27th, 2019

Works by STO LEN

Feb 28 – March 28

Subverting the techniques of suminagashi (or floating ink), Sto uses this ancient Japanese printmaking process to create floating paintings on water using oil paint, natural debris, and even pollutants found in the waterways of New York and beyond. These "tsunaminagashi" works are printed directly from the surface of water, creating ghostly imprints that contain both natural abstractions and anthropogenic residue. Colorful interventions on found paper, maps, Vietnamese war posters, wood and fabric create a magical cartography that remaps the global while worlding new worlds into being and unmaking the colonial universe. It is printmaking as visual incantation; a pictorial spell for the uncertainty of our future.
