Opens March 20, 2014 at Apartment Earth Studio, located in downtown Charleston, WV
"Local fibers artist Adrian Blackstock will be taking over the studio this March with a display of her work. If you haven't seen her art before and even if you have, this exhibit is a must see. Each piece is a window into her life in different ways and the presentation is like nothing I have ever seen. The work somehow evokes nostalgia and newness simultaneously. It's almost as if she paints with fiber. For the first time ever at the studio, starting at 7:30pm just after Snakebox, we will be hosting a group of comedians led by Jacob Hall which include Annie Lane, Ryan Carrier, Daniel Weeks, Andy Frampton, Khalid Kalwar (Hassan), and Lynn Browder" -- Nik Botkin, Owner of Apartment Earth Studio

Beyond the Margin - November 29, 2013 - Charleston, WV
Apartment Earth and GoodNews Mountaineer Garage are planning a two-part event, Beyond the Margin, curated by Nik Botkin and Emma Fisher for November’s Art Walk. The event will feature live art-making and a contemporary art exhibition. Botkin and Fisher have invited 15+ artists whose voices have traditionally been excluded from the fine art world. Whether it is the art form, such as tattoo and street art, or a part of the artist’s identity, be it race, sexual orientation or gender, Botkin and Fisher will showcase a collection of artists who have been historically relegated to the margins.

In the Apartment Earth space, visitors will find street and tattoo artists from Artistic Creations Custom Tattoos and Piercingss, Black Eagle Tattoo, and Bent Schraders' Tattoo Shop collaborating on a series of artworks live – a rare opportunity to see each artist’s creation process in person. Some of the artists involved include Drew O'Neill, Matthew Graham, Tra Walker, Tim Parsley, Prestons, ONER, Tyrone Scott and Michael Parsley. They will be accompanied by Kevin Crump, Alasha Al-Qudwah, Adrian DeQuiros and David Stephenson of Snakebox performing live music.

In the Good News Garage space, artists participating in the live painting and others will exhibit work. The artists will showcase art in a variety of media, including painting, photography and video. You will see work from Anthony Young, Kevin Adams, Adrian Blackstock, Joe Bolyard, Andrew King, Gregg Oxley, Zac, Tru and others!

In support of World AIDS Day, Good News Garage will display four panels from the WV AIDS Quilt. There will also be HIV testing on site free of charge.
