So long, Culver City. It’s time for us to go…
& Pens Press is closing it’s Culver City location and setting it’s sights on moving to the east side of LA. The last day we’ll be open for business in Culver City will be June 1, 2014. It’s been a great year, but we’ve decided to not renew our lease. We’re looking to relocate to a new spot in the Silver Lake, Echo Park, or Atwater Village areas.
Do you know of a great location that would suit us well or do you want to host us as a pop-up in your coffee shop or laundromat? We’re open to ideas, drop us a line at andpenspress (at) gmail.com. In the mean time, you can keep up with us here – the online shop will continue to serve your zine + art book needs, and of course if your in San Francisco at our sister shop Needles & Pens.
BUT before we go, we’ve got one more dynamite show planned for the gallery – Bitches Rule, Cycle 3 Zine Release/Show
Bitches Rule is an occasional “queer centric” art event and casual collective created to foster and showcase the artwork of LGBTQ artists of Los Angeles in an unconventional, non-traditional environment. Bitches Rule cycle 3 showcases both the work of emerging and established artists, exemplifying the sense of community and support that queer artists share. Some of us are in the 2014 Whitney Biennial, others show internationally and others simply just create. But one thing is clear, all these Bitches Rule!
Brian Gainey, Juan Martin Del Campo, John Arsenault, David Rasmussen, Zackary Drucker, prvtdncr, Bodega Vendetta, Paul Gellman, Brandon Andrew, Darin Klein, artist unknown, Duane Paul, Enrique Castrejon, Jesse Bernea
