Stonecutter part of "Elective Affinities" at the Hunter College Art Galleries

We are very proud to be a part of Hunter College Art Gallery's "Elective Affinities," a fantastic temporary reading room and library loosely centered on the theme of family and community. Up until April 9, the library will function as a gathering space to host readings, screenings, performances, meetings, and workshops.

Included are selections from Archipelago Books, Blonde Art Books, Brooklyn Press, Ediciones Popolet, Explorers Club of Enrique de Malacca, Melville House, Miniature Garden, New Directions, Primary Information, Purgatory Pie Press, Roof Books, Seven Stories Press, Small Editions, The Song Cave, Stonecutter, Ugly Duckling Presse, Verso, Wendy's Subway, and Word Up Books, with works by artists Erica Baum, Joey Carducci, Kevin Everson, Barbara Hammer, Shigeko Kubota, Sondra Perry, and Bryan Zanisnik.

The curators Jocelyn Spaar and
Sarah Watson say: "Our hope is that the exhibition will evolve and expand through the creativity, intellect, insight, diversity, connectivity, and power of all who occupy the space."

It is an AMAZING and beautiful space and a quiet refuge from city bustle so if you're in the area of 205 Hudson Street, stop in and spend some time.
