LESP: Friends with Benefit

photo12

Featured artist Derrick Adams showcased his new series of four prints, Game Changing, last Wednesday night at the Lower East Side Printshop’s Benefit Sale. Working alongside master printer Erik Hougen, he was able to achieve a narrative covering gender, race, and social status, all through a beautifully gilded series of “playing cards.” The works of over 50 artists were on display and for sale to support residencies for artists, while patrons mingled, enjoyed cocktails and even a gold-leafing demonstration. The sale continues through March 15 at the studio and the LESP website. -Kim Lyons and Lumi Jewell
