MARK YOUR CALENDAR...We're having a going-away party!

Join us on Tuesday, July 10 from 6-8pm, for a going-away potluck party for Grace
Kenney, our Program & Operations Administrator, at The Writer's Garret / Lucky 
Dog Books. She is moving to Amarillo, and we want to send her off right! An invitation
will be coming, but please RSVP to Ashley [].

Beginning next week...


A Series of Panel Discussions
What makes contemporary art truly contemporary? Artistic currency is more than a
matter of how popular or "hot" an artist may be. Artistic currency has much to 
do with both how and why contemporary artists make the work they do, the contexts
in which they create, and what audiences are inspired to think and say in response
to their art.

These discussions are FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

Wednesday, June 27; 6:00 - 7:00 pm

For the YOUNG reader or writer

in your household...


The Writer's Garret and Oil and Cotton []
are excited to announce Paper Explosions: Zine Camp 2012, an art and literature 
camp experience for youth ages 8 - 18.
Through Paper Explosions, your young adult will create his or her own zine, learning
the tools for written self-expression while exploring the art techniques behind 
zines and their production methods. Our second camp session runs July 16 - 20, from
1 - 4 PM. The camp costs $150, and space will be limited.
To double down on the summer art, your child can also join our partner camp Taking
It to the Streets []
with Dallas Contemporary [],
which will happen during the same week from 9 AM - 12 PM. Parents can drop off at
the Dallas Contemporary at 9AM and pick up at Oil and Cotton at 4 PM. FREE TRANSPORTATION
from the Dallas Contemporary to Oil and Cotton will be provided by DART, and a healthy
lunch will also be included, with produce provided by Urban Acres [].

This summer, our students will explore their obsessions, define their margins, and
go viral, by hand.
