also, books – Aidan Koch

We first saw Aidan’s comic work all the way back in 2009 on our trip to the Pacific NW.  It was so fun to hang her installation and see her drawing style translated into physical objects like the flag above and the hand below.  We are sad that Portland is all the way over there and Philadelphia is all the way over here… hopefully we can video chat sometime!

Aidan Koch is a comic artist and illustrator from the Pacific NW. Her first graphic novella, ‘The Whale’ came out in late 2010 published by Gaze Books. Apart from a variety of small projects and playing in a rock and roll band, she is in the midst of an ongoing correspondence project with Finnish artist Jaakko Pallasvuo that can be seen here http://pagescomic.tumblr.com/

We were both laughing and cringing at the same time to this one. Ew/awesome.

Lizz will be conducting a reading at around 8:15pm on Friday night! Hope it’s gross!!

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.
