Friends,

A month ago, Visual Resistance began organizing a benefit gallery show to support our close friend Daniel McGowan, who was arrested last December as part of a nationwide federal crackdown on radical environmental activists. We contacted our favorite artists and you've come through -- the response to our original call for art has been overwhelming! We've gotten positive responses from nearly 100 artists, and the show is shaping up to be a real knockout.

Thanks to all of you for your support on this project. Sorry if we've been out of touch for a while, and for resorting to this mass e-mail to get back in touch! Below is a quick update on what's going on with the show:

===== CONFIRMED ARTISTS =====

Arofish * Borf * Christopher Cardinale * Aaron Cometbus * Eric Drooker * The Endless Love Crew * GoreB * Peter Kuper * Josh MacPhee * Magmo the Destroyer * RB827 * Nicole Schulman * Chris Stain * Swoon * Seth Tobocman

.... and a few dozen more!


===== NEW WEB ADDRESS =====

Updated call for art at:  http://visualresistance.org/mcgowan


===== DATE CHANGE & EXTENDED DEADLINE =====

The show has been rescheduled for:

THURSDAY, JULY 27 -- FRIDAY, JULY 28
5pm -- 10pm.
ABC No Rio, 156 Rivington Street
Lower East Side, NYC

The new deadline is: JUNE 20, 2006


===== ABOUT DONATING ARTWORK =====

Thanks so much to everyone who's already sent work (and feel free to ignore the following).
If you haven't done so yet, there's still time! We're expecting to have at least 100 pieces in the show -- everything
from pencil drawings to oil paintings to sculptures to prints of every kind -- at prices ranging from $5 - $2,000 and everywhere in between.

Because of the limited wall space at ABC No Rio and because we want to showcase the widest variety of artists possible, we are looking for pieces that are 18x24 or smaller. Please contact us if you have something in mind that is larger before you send it.

We can pick up artwork in the NYC area -- please email us to schedule a time to meet up. Otherwise, the mailing address for all art is:

Ryan Nuckel
Tamiment Library
70 Washington Square South, 10th fl
New York, NY 10012


===== THANKS =====

Thanks to everyone for your generosity on this project. Daniel has asked me to let you all know that he greatly appreciates the support he's gotten from the art community. As the Green Scare rolls on with more arrests and intimidation, it's heartening to see so many wonderful artists coming together to support a friend in need.

Thank you!

Peace,
Ryan
