Mystery Spot: A Fundraiser and Zine-Making Party at Soo Visual Arts Center on August 6th from 6 - 9pm. Tickets are $10 and available at the door. With entry, enjoy a local brew from Fulton and a DJ set by local musician Wooden Antler. Take part in a zine-making party and peruse a selection of locally made artist publications for sale, featuring titles by over a dozen individual artists and publishers working in photography, collage, drawing, conceptual practice, and more. Drawings from the TV Objects book will also be exclusively available for sale.

The number of visual artists using the book format for the creation and proliferation of work has exploded in the last 15 years even as the end of print media is supposed to be upon us. This fundraiser will support the work of local artist book publisher Mystery Spot Books. Proceeds will go toward printing and distributing Mystery Spot’s upcoming publications, including Drawings of Background Objects Seen in TV Shows, the night’s featured title, containing the work of over a dozen local artists.

Artists/Publishers with printed matter for sale: Eric William Carroll, Jan Estep, Anne George, Sam Gould, Good Weather, Monica Haller, Peter Happel Christian, Jess Hirsch, Houseboat Press, Brett Kallusky, Paula McCartney, Michael Mott, Mystery Spot Books, Erika Ritzel, Areca Roe and Lex Thompson
