In his month’s WG News, Hyperallergic devotes its “Off the Wall” column to our picks for what to do and see during this upcoming weekend’s Northside Open Studios. The event has expanded in collaboration with L Magazine‘s Northside Festival, which is “a four-day showcase of the best in recent music, film, art and ideas held within a walkable radius of Williamsburg and Greepont. That area is loosely defined as everywhere north of Grand Street.”

The artists who have registered for Northside Opens Studios will be welcoming visitors to their studios on Saturday, June 18 and Sunday, June 19 (noon – 6om), though check the online listings for specific times.

We are a proud media sponsor for the event and will be taking part with our mail art show, Presents: Three Months of Mail Art for Hyperalleric HQ, which kicks off this Friday with an opening party from 6–9pm.

One of the things we’re most excited about during Northside is Booklyn’s Zine & Print fair. Located at 37 Greenpoint Ave. (4th Floor), the two day event will feature some of the best of north Brooklyn’s indie publishing and print culture.

The WG News is a north Brooklyn-based alt month that is available free of charge at stores, cafes and bars all around Bushwick, Greenpoint and Williamsburg.
