In addition to a bustling showroom with dozens of exhibitors selling their wares, Linework NW also features a wide-ranging set of programing. Full details will be announced as we get closer to the show, but highlights include:

    Floating World Comics, 400 NW Couch St

    Edie Fake’s Memory Palaces has just been released! Published by Secret Acres, Memory Palaces will make it’s West Coast debut at Linework NW. To celebrate, Fake will be giving a short and colorful experimental lecture on the sexuality of patterns that weaves together fabric, the tarot, the concept of individuality and jeggings. He’ll be talking about mental architecture and may touch on a side interest, teeth with faces. Something refreshing will be provided for those who come to snack and copies of the new Memory Palaces art zine will be available to ogle and purchase!

    Friday April 11th, 6-9pm
