An Eastside weekend

The Eastside is the place to be this weekend for fun art-related activities.

Frost King publication reading/release party

"Please join us for a reading and the release of Heather and Ivan Morison, the companion publication to their new sculpture Frost King. Eric Fredericksen (Western Bridge), Betsey Brock (Henry Art Gallery) and Matthew Stadler (Publication Studio), will read from the Morisons' newest novella, a vividly pungent tale stitching togetherfact, fiction and graphic post-apocalyptic visions of the future.

This is the second release in the Open Satellite Publications series, a co-publishing partnership between Open Satellite and Portland-based Publication Studio. In addition to the artists' story, it is an image-filled reader featuring an interview by The Stranger art critic and visual arts editor Jen Graves and a critical response by Eric Fredericksen. The first 100 include a unique frottage print and will be sold as a limited edition."
