listen, eat, converse, and drink with Matthew Stadler and others at the clockshop. $40 gets you a gourmet meal and great company. Wednesday, February 20th.
Matthew's a great friend, writer, arts advocate, and all-around good guy. My Beaverton work comes out of a loose and inspiring collaboration with him that began with a trip out there to eat tacos, buy Totoro t-shirts, and embrace the ruptures inherent in the Zwischenstadt.
Amy Stein's Domesticated is up at Paul Kopeikin. This is one of those galleries I've never had a chance to set foot in, but they show so much good work there that I've got to do so soon. The opening's February 16th from 6 to 8.

* please note, the idea of the "Battle photo" comes directly from Amy's blog and is one of my favorite things out there. Actually, another blog favorite used to be Matthew Stadler's Personal Weblog where Matthew used Amazon.com's "Mechanical Turk" service to hire strangers from around the globe to write his personal blog for him, without letting the readers in on it.
