Got stuff that no longer brings you joy but might be another person’s treasure? Our month long Give & Take will transform the gallery space into a swap-shop-meets-free-store-meets-surplus-redistribution-meets-“curb alert!” Anyone is welcome to GIVE items to our rotating collection and anyone is welcome to TAKE items free of charge for oneself or as a gift for whomever. Please no hazardous material– other than that pretty much anything has the potential to find a new life or be turned into something new all together.

Clean our your garage, basement and closet! We will be accepting items all month long to replenish the shelves, but need to start off with a fully-stocked store. Drop off you items Monday, Nov. 29 12:00-6:00pm or contact us asap to schedule a convenient time for you! STORE OPENS DECEMBER 9TH.
Check here for store hours.

Witness To The Rain | Fidencio Fifield-Perez
Visible Records, 1740 Broadway St.

Fidencio Fifield-Perez was born in Oaxaca, Mexico, but raised in the U.S. after his family migrated. His current work examines borders, edges, and the people who must traverse them. In his work, Fifield-Perez manipulates paper surfaces and maps to refer to the crafts and customs used to celebrate festivals and mourn the dead, which he learned as a child in Oaxaca. For Fifield-Perez, these techniques are a way to reconnect with a time and place no longer present. Exhibit runs through 12/11. Click for more info.
