This Thursday, July 16, 6-9 pm, stop by "Business Edition," a one-night exhibition of artist-produced editions and prints, and a selection from the recently inaugurated Kris Graves Projects - Pocket Utopia Flatfile collection. The evening's highlights will include: a new Pocket Utopia limited edition by Adam Simon, a 246 Editions by Sharon Butler (that's me), an intaglio hand-worked print by Andrew Piedilato published by Randy Wray's Element Editions, a Brece Honeycutt Byproduct, a recent Maggie Michael painting on paper from +KGP&PU Flatfile, and works in progress by Pocket Utopia's current artist in resident, Sharon Butler.

Note: After this month, Pocket Utopia will close, but Austin Thomas and Norte Maar announced this week that they are working toward creating a Black-Mountain-like school called Pocket U which will convene the last two weeks of July, 2010, at Rouses Point, New York.
