Wake up, the Art Fair wars are over! The free booze has been drunk! The smoozing has subsided. So what do we do now. You come buy the hot of the presses new issue of Cabinet! (& and grab a copy of Proximity…if you missed out on its release this weekend) Wow!
Let the Art Madness continue! Its all way to conceptual in here. Peace I’m OUT!!!!!!

Wow that would be a strange battle, but seriously we got two great events this week. So get off the couch, brave the cold and check em out! As always all events at Quimby’s are FREE!!!
