November 2 through December 7
Opening Reception: Saturday, November 2, 6 to 9 p.m

Trey Egan decorates the walls at K Contemporary with thickly swabbed painterly oil abstracts that represent a multi-sensory synesthetic response to the trance and dubstep music he listens to in the studio. Interesting stuff for interesting musical times: Drop by and groove to Egan’s rich colors and shapes. Daisy Patton's blown-up re-purposed photographic paintings keep things lively in the Project Space.

Saturday, November 2: VIP early bird shopping, 3 to 6 p.m., $45; general public, 6 to 9 p.m., free.

The Japanese artist collective SLOP makes some of the most stylist blown-glass pipes in the world, and they’ve been at it for ten years, specializing in the trademark Contemporary Undercover Pipe (C.U.P.) that appropriates a lowbrow, pop-cultural icon: a McDonald’s cup. Black Book helps celebrate with an exhibition of new work (perhaps something for Santa’s bag?), the release of a forty-page retrospective zine and other curated goodies.
