AND we have scheduled new tollbooth shows in 2006 with Barry Maxwell (who made our wonderful website that the stranger copied-just kidding) and architect Rikke Kirstine Larsen

Also, we are trying to help Bill Daniel show his long awaited film in tacoma (hopefully in the courtyard at tacoma art museum, email them and tell them you want to see it there) or let us know if you have any suggestions for a good free space in town.

and woo hoo to everyone who made it to ladyfest in oly this past weekend, sorry we missed it.

Lastly, I just finished an interview with the volcano so look for that in a few weeks and don't laugh at the picture.

thanks everyone!

Hi everyone, Alex Schweder's show is up through this weekend at the Tollbooth gallery (he installed "Jealous Poche" and "Split"), so I thought I'd post a link to his personal site. Check it out.

Hey, I just recieved this in my email and thought I'd pass it along to everyone. Josh MacPhee organizes the People's History project (which had a show last year with Vanessa Renwick at the Tollbooth Gallery) and also JUSTSEEDS among many other thing. Check out the prints and People's History Project:

JUSTSEEDS UPDATE 07.05
------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------

Hi Everyone!
Just wanted to drop this months note with a couple updates on
www.justseeds.org
I've still got half my life in boxes, and am getting deeper and deeper
into the closet and flat-files. I have posted a bunch more cheap prints
($1-$10) up on the new Sale Items section of the site. These include
the classic Got Oil? poster of Dick Cheney by StreetRec, a promo poster
by Kevin Dresser from the great Chicago street intervention event the
Department of Space and Land Reclamation, Malcontents prints by Erik
Ruin, and stencils prints from 2003's All Stencil Traveling Art Show by
Roger Peet and Toben Windahl.

And, check out the rest of the new items to find 2 prints by Portland
OR printmaker Icky A.; 3 new street art/stencil/sticker zines:
Overspray #3, PEELzine #4 and Smiling Disease #1; a great new book
about reclaiming urban space called Belltown Paradise by my friends
Brett Bloom and Ava Bromberg; a really cool artists book/zine called me
no like by Minneapolis artist Josh Journey-Heinz; and a really nice
pack of stickers by Melbourne design troublemaker Marcsta.

If you get a chance, definitely check out the site.

I'm in the process of rebuilding some major elements as well, and I
hope in the next couple months to have a functional news section on the
front page, a section with bios of many of the artists on the site, as
well as possibly a message board/dialogue space for discussion of
radical printmaking and street art. I'll keep you posted....

As always, send any questions to: info [at] justseeds.org

We just got back from presenting at the "Sharpening the Edge" panel at the American's for the Arts national public art conference in Austin, Texas. Everything went amazingly well and we had a lot of fun. We presented the Tollbooth Gallery and Toby Room. We also screened "Some Say She Lost Her Head", "Maps to Radical Imagining" by Wynne Greenwood, and "Round-Up" by Patrick Rock.

Also: the brand new issue Toby Room 10 is now on the streets, so pick up your free copy in the region... or it will be available very soon at buyolympia. This issue is the culmination of the first years worth of work at the Tollbooth Gallery and features interviews with the artists: Bill Daniel, Jared Pappas-Kelley, Denise Smith, Vanessa Renwick, Delta Camshaft Collective, Tim Sullivan, Wynne Greenwood, Bridget Irish, Fionn Meade, Rob Millis, Michael Lent, and a bonus interview with Scott Fife by artist Virginia Bunker. Pick up your copy or contact us at artrod to order one.

If you haven't had a chance, check out Patrick Rock's new installation at the Tollbooth Gallery 'The Valentine's Day Round-Up Massacre'. The installation includes the video 'Round-Up' in which a red rubber ball races across the desert pushed by the wind and chased by a pickup truck...
