More Info
Gallery Openings at All Along Press, Fort Gondo Compound for the Arts, Aisle 1 Gallery, and Los Caminos

All Along Press (2712 Cherokee Street)
Everything Must Go: Window Installations by Anya Liao, Rici Wittkugel, Katie Olson, and Anna C. Paszkiewicz.
[From 1940-2002 the printshop was a shoe store, Proper Shoes. The window displays in the storefront are once again filled with shoe boxes. However, in lieu of shoes, these screen-printed shoe boxes contain contributions from St. Louis artists in the form of zines, photographs, drawings, etc, functioning more like the shoe boxes in everyone's basement, filled with memories, photos, and keepsakes. This piece is an homage to Proper Shoe and the history of the area, yet celebrates the new growth of the artistic community on Cherokee Street.]
Also at All Along Press, Tate Foley will be showing an installation addressing the same themes of the destruction of the old, to make room for the new.

About the Artists
Ben Pierce ///
Joy Tiyasirichokchai ///
Joy Tiyasirichokchai is a self taught artist currently residing in Saint Louis, MO. Thriving on the enthropic beat of the changing world, she interprets this through the use of the feminine form, characters, and nature, mixed with artifacts that hold a special meaning or displays a moment of recollection. She hopes to remind the audience that beauty is found in all things and like layers of emotion, it takes time and effort to nurture.”

Summer Reading Series at Firecracker this Saturday - Erin Wiles and Mary Ruth Donnelly

Saturday, August 6 · 2:00pm - 3:30pm

The Firecracker Press
2838 Cherokee St.
Saint Louis, MO

More Info
This is the third installment of our 2011 Summer Reading Series. We have two wonderful readers lined up that are sure to entertain. How does this series differ from others...
1. each reader reads their work in the midst of the printshop... on the pressroom floor. There's not a bad seat in the house!
2. we've got presses set up, with lead and wood type, to print a broadside of each reader's work.
3. we print the words you're hearing as they are being read. Hear all the clicks and clacks and other noise of the printshop.
4. you take home a freshly printed broadside for the cost of admission... a slim $5 bill.
