Dime Bag 3 is the ninth in an ongoing series of events by Isip and Stevens, bringing together over 200 artists from New York City and beyond representing an extraordinary variety of disciplines. Painters, illustrators, graphic designers, filmmakers, photographers, product designers, and others have been invited to create artworks specifically designed to be exhibited in 3-inch plastic bags: dime bags. Each artist was sent one of the symbolic baggies and asked to fill it in any way they wished.

'Downright' show pics
When the server crash thing happened I was uploading some of these pics of the opening at PEP Gallery last week.  It was a great show, nice variety of work, reflective of what's being done out there.  Jashar did a good job of putting it all together. 
Just wanted to show you guys some of the pics.  Nice small gallery, fairly new to the area.  The folks that run it were very enthusiastic about the artists in the show, drop by if you're in the area.  It was also fun to see how my old Pratt neighborhood had changed, I hadn't been back in a while. 
The close up images are of one of Chang Park's portrait paintings and Sam Weber's ink drawings. Both were terrific.
