Time Waste Management christens new space with art show and pop-up shop



Last Saturday, in the upstairs rooms once known as Sister Space, the Time Waste Management Art Collective christened their A Place Gallery with an installation by Vanessa Andrade and Antonio Gonzalez ("Ready to Ship A/W '15") and a Hex Haus pop-up shop. The one-night-only party was the beginning of something new, but also the culmination of years of scene presence.

Cody Zeigler, Tara Atefi and Jeff Gross have, in various permutations, worked on the Is It Over Yet? zine and print collective, the Orlando Zine Fest, Les Poussieres Premier Samedi and many other events. Now bonded as Time Waste Management, they have a room of their own. A Place Gallery is the natural inheritor of those events formerly hosted at the Space, prior to its graceful demise last month, not simply because it's just around the corner but because many of the same people are involved, and the same let's-do-it-together spirit prevails.

TWMT's mission statement declares, "Our goals are to provide an outlet free of commercial advertising for local/non-local artists to subjugate and reform their works of any media to a broad community of their peers while providing workshops, equipment, and materials needed to allow free artistic growth in technique and creative process."

Plans include "regular functions including workshops, classes, a permanent zine library, art exhibits, movie nights, studio time, and fun time!" For more pictures of "Ready to Ship A/W '15," by Vanessa Andrade and Antonio Gonzalez, check out Always Nothing.

A Place Gallery is on the second floor at 649 N. Mills Ave. Follow to learn about upcoming events.
