Book Release Party for Stephanie Barber’s new publication titled Night Moves
Friday, February 15 from 7-9 pm at Atomic Books
The book “Night Moves” is a collection of all the Youtube users’ comments which accompany the Bob Seger song “Night Moves.” It’s an epistolary poem from and to strangers, an exquisite corpse construction with all the wonder and ridicule that involves. It’s tedious and ugly, sublime and heroic. nostalgic nostalgic nostalgic. It’s simultaneously a sloppy, speedy anthropological survey, music review and piece of amateur erotic fiction.
A conceptual framing disguised as a book of poems. A book of tender electronic poems disguised as worthless dross. A moving, temporal marker. Night Moves is being published by Publishing Genius Press.
Kate Porter will move the night with her cello. Barber will do a short reading from the book.
**Atomic Books is 3620 Falls Rd. in Hampden, Baltimore

Sweet ‘art Artist Reception and Area 405’s 10th Anniversary Shin-dig
Saturday, February 16 from 6-9 pm
Sweet ‘art is a celebration of the collaborative and connective qualities that have grown Area 405 into a vital part of Baltimore’s arts and cultural community.
Area 405 invited anyone who has shown here, volunteered, interned, hosted an event here, has studios here, seen something here or in some way have engaged with us in the last 10 years to participate in this collaborative exhibition.
The 60 artists who replied to our call were paired at random with one another, creating a sweet, new connection. The artists were tasked to contact one another and begin a conversation. The results of these 30 collaborations will involve all new works, a confluence of existing works, new individual works with a common theme, and select pairings that have all been chosen by the collaborators themselves.
It is our hope that each pair of artists enjoys the process and is able to make a sweet’ art connection that will continue well beyond the exhibition.
We are excited for this exhibition and look forward to seeing what each pairing brings!
