Asphodel, 20 Jay Street, Suite 837 – Karl Burkheimer’s aline, a “manifesto, travelogue, process, and documentation of thought: a living archive of calls and responses, and an elegy for object making.”

exhibit The City Dwellings.

Big & Small/Casual Showcase, 20 Jay Street, #M01 – a closing reception for Sjoerd Doting’s Days In A Life featuring 5″ x 7″ paintings of the view from the artist’s studio window.
