also, books – Beth Heinly

Beth Heinly has been furiously installing for the past few days in the gallery. She is now the master of silver reflective mylar, as seen above.  The coral figure is the artist. Looking good, Beth!

We’re so excited for her performance Friday night from 7pm to 8pm.  Let’s get ripped.  Also, see you at her performance on Tuesday, August 23rd – Celebrity Fitness Hour – to keep up that toned beach bod, babe.

Beth Heinly is a Leo, born on August 16th 1981.  She is a collective member of Little Berlin gallery where she curates exhibits and manages a zine library.  She has exhibited throughout Philadelphia and Paris mainly concentrating on performance.  When she is not performing she draws comics under the pseudonym, the 3:00 book, aka, 3:00.  Amidst her obvious identity  crisis she lives through the prerequisite, do not take life so seriously.
