"...active habits are strengthened by repetition but passive ones are weakened."
-C. S. Lewis
Keep on opening the window. There's the indelible strain arching across bristling, magnetic spires. After that: coronation with five thousand halos dripping, literally, with glory. Everything that was has fallen away from me ; now only a throb echoes against itself. The trumpets, no longer limp, are ready. They wait, all attention, like soldiers. My sandals explode, one at a time. "Each leg is shorter than the other". I can hear the knocking behind the door, but the door itself eludes me even as I smash my jaw against its threshold. But I don't do that too often anymore. Rupture is the truth emerging via beauty, yielding astonishment. Astonishment is the dissolution of the membrane between awareness and truth. The Good is psycho-physiological electricity.
After the whole order blew apart, it became possible to separate the wheat from the chaff.

After two years, West Street Gallery will close. A final show will include works by each of the artists who contributed to the project. The exhibition will be on view June 22–July 7.
West Street Gallery was founded in 2009 by Alex Gartenfeld and Matt Moravec, and subsequently involved nearly two-dozen exhibitions, talks, screenings and readings. We are grateful to all of the artists who participated, and we are proud to have showed significant and often times first projects by emerging international artists.
Perhaps the most important element of West Street is our community. This network of activity will continue on. Alex and Matt are excited for our forthcoming projects—both independently and as collaborators. Thank you for your support.
An after-party will be held in conjuction with 47 Canal, location forthcoming.
