Big Sale at Altered Esthetics this Saturday (1/25/14) as Altered Esthetics Gets Rid of its Walls.

Our friends and collaborators at Altered Esthetics gallery (1224 Quincy St. NE Minneapolis) are having a big sale this Saturday from 12 to 5 as they prepare to move out of their current space to pursue AE Without Walls. Please check out the kickstarter for that for more information, and to donate.

The sale this weekend will include all of the collaborative comics projects we’ve done with them that they still have in stock, including Lutefisk Sushi volumes D and E, Just Add Ink, Rock Ink Roll and BIG FUNNY… they will all be available at DEEPLY discounted prices. Hopefully we can find good homes for most of them. Much original art and other good stuff will also be for sale, including their furniture.

Here is a Craigslist post about the sale with the furniture for sale shown and some photos of other items.

More on AE Without Walls:

Altered Esthetics is excited to commemorate our 10th year with the launch of “Ae Without Walls” – a pop-up exhibition tour of the Twin Cities.

We have exciting news to share with you!

Celebrating a decade in the Arts District, Altered Esthetics will bring exhibitions directly to the audience in a series of pop-up installations and exhibitions around the Twin Cities entitled “Ae Without Walls.”

No stranger to pop-ups, Altered Esthetics has hosted exhibitions in alternative venues. From the Dinkytowner, to installations at the Hennepin Central Library, to its solo exhibitions program, Altered Esthetics has curated installations in a variety of spaces – but never before on such a grand scale. The hope of Ae Without Walls – to increase accessibility, opportunities for exposure to the arts, and to celebrate 10 years of being a voice for artists.

Altered Esthetics will still base out of the Q’arma building, maintaining a presence at its home in the Arts District, but will no longer have a permanent space housed there. Exhibition locations will be announced monthly.

Altered Esthetics is a community gallery run by artists, for artists. Want to get involved in Ae Without Walls? Email contact(at) to find out more about showing opportunities, internships, volunteering and more.
