What is a zine? “A zine (pronounced “zeen,” like “magazine”) is a self-published, small circulation, non-commercial booklet or magazine, usually produced by one person or a few individuals. Zines come in all shapes, sizes, topics, and formats. Most zines are photocopied, but they can also be printed offset, like a magazine or newspaper. Zines range from handwritten and sloppy to cut-and-paste (text pasted on top of background images) to artsy with handmade touches to produced on a computer with a professional looking layout. Zines may incorporate screenprinting, linoleum cuts, and hand-stitched bindings. Most zines have print runs of a couple dozen to a few hundred copies.
In a zine, you might find typos, improper grammar, and brilliant or radical or just plain honest ideas that you don’t normally see in Time, Newsweek, or People. A zine can be about whatever subject its creator decides upon, or it may contain a variety of subjects and writing styles within the same issue. Zines can include personal essays, political discussions, fiction, craft or do-it-yourself advice, articles about music or movies, comics, poetry, reviews – anything under the sun, really. Zines are personal and idiosyncratic. The best thing about zines is this: There are no rules. “ -Description from Grand Rapids Zine Fest
Opening Reception Thurs 10/26 6-9PM | INVITE

On the evening of August 31st 24 local creators came to Sugar City and were randomly put into pairs. These 12 pairs were given six weeks to create a collaborative visual art piece. On Thursday October 26th the second installment of the Artist Lottery will open at Sugar City from 6:00-9:00 p.m. Like the pairing night the final pieces will be a complete mystery. Though unlike pairing night the finished projects will not be random, but made with purpose between these forged pairings.
Pairings for the second installment of the Artist Lottery are: Nate Hill + Morgan Arnett / Sean Figiel + Gerald Mead / Sarah Barry + Emma Percy / Alicia Vetter + Irene Rekhviashvili / Emily Finlan + Emma Brittain / Chavis Day + Halley Shaw / Alia Souissi + Sean Fitzpatrick / Nikayla Brown + Morgan Loghry / Amanda Killian + Scott Puccio / Walter Burdzy + Madeline Otero / Kristin R. Brandt + Alicia Morlock / Ann Moody + Dana Duncan
