This Saturday January 16th, _Quarterly will celebrate the release of issue 4 and their first year anniversary at Silent Barn (915 Wycoff Ave, Ridgwood, Queens). Doors open at 7pm and music by Ctrl Top, Weekend, Soft Circle, and Lichens begins at 8pm. The $10 entry fee also includes a copy of issue 4.
_Quarterly is an art and literary magazine with themed issues, edited by Jesse Hlebo. The most recent issue revolves around the theme of ‘Sea’, and they’ve stepped it up a notch with a larger newsprint format and full color printing. The layout is also much more sophisticated. This issue is guest edited by photographer Grant Willing and features photographs by David Schoerner, Ruth van Beek, and Marten Lange, along with a nice text piece indexing the sightings of the Loch Ness Monster by Daniel Gustav Cramer, and a microscopic copy of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. If you aren’t familiar with any of these artists make sure to click on the links to their websites. I’m excited to see future issues of this new publication.
