Dear Friends,

We hope you can join us this, Saturday, August at 7pm for a reading by
JEANINE WEBB and CATI PORTER. An opening reception for LOUIS M.
SCHMIDT’s “We’re All in This Together for Ourselves,” on display at
the gallery, will follow the reading.

Jeanine Webb’s work has appeared in ZYZZYVA, The Antioch Review, Louis
Liard Magazine, the San Diego Writers’ 2010 anthology A Year in Ink
and online in the Summer 2010 issues of The Latent Print and WTF PWM.
She holds a M.A. in Creative Writing from the University of
California, Davis, where she taught workshops in making poems. Her
manuscript Flash Paper was a finalist for the 2008 Cider Press Review
Book Award. Her work concerns images of apocalypse in relation to late
capitalism, sci-fi, connectivity, surf culture, historical realities
as shaped by technologies, modern mythography, media spin and pop
culture. Jeanine lives in San Diego. Look for the literary magazine
she’ll be editing, Greater Than Or Equal To, which should exist at
http://www.greaterthanzine.com/ sometime late this summer or in early
fall.

CATI PORTER is the author of a collection of poems, Seven Floors Up
(Mayapple Press, 2008), as well as the chapbooks small fruit songs:
prose poems (Pudding House Publications, 2008), (al)most delicious, an
ekphrastic series after Modigliani’s nudes (forthcoming in 2010 from
Dancing Girl Press), and what Desire makes of us, a series written
during NaPoWriMo 2009 (forthcoming from Ahadada books as an e-book
with illustrations by her sister, Amy Joy Payne). She is founder &
editor of Poemeleon: A Journal of Poetry . In June 2010 she will
receive her MFA in Poetry from Antioch University, Los Angeles.

LOUIS M SCHMIDT is an artist currently based in San Diego, CA. His
work addresses personal and societal unhappiness, the many failures of
history and myths of progress and upward mobility. Schmidt’s most
recent body of work, “We’re All in This Together For Ourselves,” is an
immersive, mixed-media wall drawing that presents itself as a cyclic
fragment, a frozen section of negative feedback loop that evinces a
dark pool of truths about humans, about Americans, about the now to
which our ideologies have delivered us.

Please share this information with friends and any interested parties.
Agitprop readings are free, but donations to the gallery are always
welcome. We hope to see you there and for festivities before and afterward!
