Hello and good-bye to summer, I can not believe this is the last REAL weekend of our extremely well deserved summer break!
We have had an epic year so far. We held 16 openings between January 19th and July 19th. Exhibited 49 artists from around the world, not including the 17 artists who donated work for our first ever fundraiser, or the 52 artist in the Green Patriot Poster Salon. We also opened our official bookstore, and found a new home. Oh yeah, you don’t that part yet! Well, we are making it official very soon…
In the meantime, and in the spirit of moving and shaking, we have lent the good old 208 E. 7th Street to our friends from PERFECTION Barbershop. This pop-up barbershop will be in the OG EV space for the next 4-8 weeks, so if you need a FADE, CAESAR, MOHAWK, SCISSOR CUT, RAZOR SHAVE, SHAPE-UPS and TAPE-UPS these dudes are the HOOK-UP. They do kids cuts too. What can I say, we are family!
Enjoy your holiday weekend, and stay tuned! xoxo EV

This looks nice if you are in London…
Idioglossia is a glossary of texts and terms generated in and around the Goldsmiths Art Writing MFA seminars at the Whitechapel Gallery in 2011/2012.
Enjoying the perverse function essential to every glossary, this book presents words, names, references and concepts in a way that disavows, reconfigures, contradicts or makes more complex their general and original use. It is the outcome of a series of workshops hosted by the students of the Art Writing MFA from Goldsmiths, University of London, using the
11 Statements written by Maria Fusco, Yve Lomax, Michael Newman and Adrian Rifkin (as published in Frieze and Fillip Journal) as a point of departure.
The material of the book was generated through presentations and discussions between students, professors and general members of the public.
Book Launch, September 21, 3pm

Hey Guys, it’s summer break and Ed. Varie will be closed from August 5th until at least September 5th (my birthday) and maybe later… but do not fret, there are some awesome things on the cooker, like really awesome, but I can only say that much.
I know for SURE: We will participating in the NY ART BOOK FAIR this year for the first time and we are SUPER STOKED and are planning lots and lots of fun stuff.

We’d love to have a residency here!! Then we could visit with all of our Vancouver friends too! xx EV
ISLAND FOLD PART-TIME HERMIT :
What is it?
A cozy 500 sqft live-in artist studio available to rent for 2, 3 or 4 months.
Where is it?
The studio is set-back on a 1.5 acre property we rent, nestled in a forest on Pender Island, B.C, Canada.
Why is it?
After years of offering free of charge residencies in our home, we felt the time to turn a new page. Part-time Hermit offers a place for artists to look after themselves while creating new work over a longer period of time. It also helps continue relationships within the Islands Fold community and opens possible collaborations.
This studio has become available for us to find suited artists to rent it. We feel it’s a great opportunity for people to produce a body of new work in a semi-remote and beautiful setting.
What’s in it for Islands Fold?
The studio offers no monetary gain for us. We just want to be neighbors with like-mind and spirited artists, and continue the human connection that we’ve valued through Islands Fold. If we see a possibility to have an artist’s work on our online gallery, then we’d offer 70% of sales to the artist.
How much is the studio?
The studio rents for $600 a month plus utilities.
When is it available?
Sept 1st 2012 and onwards.
Who is this best suited for?
This will only work for artists who have financial support and stability. As an example, Part-time Hermit’s first artist in residence is a recipient of a grant that payed for 2 months rent and living expenses. The space is comfortable but isn’t large, so it’s best suited for artists who can work in smaller spaces.
How to apply?

Tacos, Tecate, and Teenage Teeth!!!
Last night was awesome, but you know that because you were all here, and by all here, I mean I think the entire world was here. (You know we are having a good time when there are no photos to prove it, well, I got a few…) Anyway, it was a spectacular evening, everyone was chilling/chatting/downing tecates and tacos in the most perfect weather ever…
If you missed it you are bummed, but the upside is that the show is up through the weekend, and Teenage Teeth the book is officially stocked and avails here at EV.
Gallery open extended hours for this special engagement exhibition…
Today til 8, Friday 2-8, and Saturday 12-6.
