This Friday, 6-8pm, our favorite gallery, Pocket Utopia, will be celebrating its one-year anniversary on the Lower East Side with "Club Pocket Utopia," a big party and pop-up group show. Look for work by Liz Atzberger, Hovey Brock, Sharon Butler, Paul D'Agostino, Kris Graves, Ellen Letcher, Amy Lincoln, Matthew Miller, David Storey (pictured above), Kay Thomas, Anton Würth, and Brenda Zlamany.

And while you're there: Check out Pocket Utopia's new neighbor S & J Projects. Independent curators Rebecca Jampol and David Sedgwick Smith have opened a gallery in the space next door. According to Benjamin Sutton at In The Air, both Jampol and Smith are veterans of the Newark art scene. She founded the experimental project space Solo(s) Project House; and he co-founded the non-profit Index Art Center. Their inaugural show is called "Introduction," and features work by Dahlia Elsayed, Daniel Patrick Helmstetter, Mark Fox and Todd Pavlisko.
