Words and art from current exhibitions at the Green Lantern Gallery, artist and curatorial statements, upcoming events, guest pieces from other "culture workers" as well as text pieces based loosely around the theme of the current exhibition in collaboration with the artist. "In this issue, we will focus on the idea of relationships, primarily explored through the work of Katie Kelly and Bill Morocco... Inspired by the last exhibit, 'HOT MESS,' featuring collaborative work by Caleb Lyons and Peter Hoffman, the subject of relationships, business, casual, friendly, unfriendly, invariably comes up... HOT MESS is an apt metaphor for any aspect of life, for it is true that while a person does not live literally alone, a person does not have any real path to follow when constructing and maintaining relationships."<br />
