I’m getting one for a small wall which needs some small work, and one for a friend who needs something other than bills and junk in her mailbox.
I really wanted to keep this month’s subscriptions for myself. This happens a lot, but I have all this work of mine all over my walls and I’m starting to feel a little crowded by the visual catalog of my disposition.

Check out the current show, “Part and Parcel” at The Fridge. In all previous Project Dispatch shows the only artwork on view is that which is being sold for subscriptions. This is the first showcase of the artist’s more substantial artworks, and it’s a wonderful collection.
Work by Frank Adams, Keli Anaya, Deborah Anzinger, Chris Chen, Rachel England, Jessica Ford, Elizabeth Graeber, Becca Kallem, Chandi Kelley, Regan Kireilis-Helms, Stephanie Kwak, Jon Lee, Dana Maier, and Kristoffer Tripplaar
The expression “part and parcel” is used to reference something that must be done or accepted as a part of something else. Without the venue to sell works on a small scale, many artists wouldn’t have the means to create some of their more substantial works. Part and Parcel is an opportunity to showcase large scale works by Project Dispatch artists while emphasizing the importance of the subscription. We will be displaying one piece next to each large work that will be wrapped in brown paper to represent the subscription. Patrons will be able to purchase the larger work or take a risk on the smaller, wrapped piece by the same artist. These smaller works will be the beginnings of subscriptions, but will remain unopened until after they are purchased. By showing these seen and unseen works alongside each other, we want to emphasize that the project is an integral part of the practice for the artists involved.
