Ken Butler transforms objects into functional hybrid instruments and artwork. NOTE: He is performing this Sunday at Northside Festival in Williamsburg, Brooklyn at 3pm! Ken on facebook.

Andy Monk's recent plaster/ matchstick series represent floor plans of his former residences, etc. They are composed of thousands of matchsticks and are transformed, through burning, to leave behind the scorched remnants of memory. Andy on facebook.

Lavinia Roberts' work, as a playwright and creator of soft sculpture/ masks, is transformed from words/ object into social commentary. Her short play, Moment, is at the East Village Theatre Festival in June/July. NOTE: Catch today's performance, Sat 3/16 at 3pm ("EVA" on the calendar)! Lavinia on facebook.

Daryl-Ann Saunders' ongoing "Pioneers of Bushwick" photo portraits & text are on display at 3 locations in Bushwick. One of numerous objectives is to share stories of long-time Bushwick residents, thus transforming them from strangers to neighbors. Daryl-Ann on facebook.
