Justseeds has moved our global distribution headquarters! In May, the Portland and Pittsburgh worker-members packed up all our prints, books, shelving, flatfiles, the computer, and the dehumidifier into a truck. Mary and Shaun then piloted the rented rig across what’s left of this beautiful land (stopping in Yellowstone) to arrive at our new and spacious digs in Pittsburgh! And a new chapter begins…
If you’re in the area, please drop by for a housewarming and exhibition of new work by Justseeds! It’s also a local book release party for the new Firebrands book we just released on Microcosm, compiled and edited by Pittsburgh Justseeders Bec Young and Shaun Slifer!
Friday June 11
6:00-10:00
3410 Penn Ave 2nd Floor (above the new Bike PGH offices)
enter in the back from Spring Way, bike parking in the back!
Refreshments & BYOB

Just a quick note to wish you well in your new location–just an hour or so from my place! Stubled onto Just Seeds when searching for any existing artwork by Peg Averill (born here in Akron, Ohio and known by her birth name of Peg Kerr, in the art circles here, before changeing her name to her mothers’ maiden name of “Averill” in the early 1970’s. She majored in Art here at the University Of Akron, and I have several of her early political Artwork which she gave me when we were both very much involved in the Anti-War Movement and hiding from the FBI. (Hiding in plain sight, actually, while they attempted to link us to various Draft Board Raids aroung the Great Lakes region via a group known as ‘The Great Lakes Conspiracy to Save Lives’… a spin-off from the ‘The East Coast’ and ‘West Coast’ Conspiracy to Save Lives.) In any event, I have some great unseen and undiscovered and undisplayed (for nearly 40 years) pieces of her Artwork when she was creating in the medium of “political” Ceramics. As you know full well, she eventually left this medium to pursue a career in Graphic/Poster political Art, finding the Sketchpad much more applicable,more immediate, and more wide-spread to her Activism and Art, than a clunky kiln could ever be! If you know of any ArtHouse that would like to view or maybe purchase those pieces, you or they may contact me at the above e-mail address, or reach me by mail: Mark McHenry / 148 E. Mapledale Ave. / Akron, Ohio 44301 Thanks much!

Cool! Having lived in both Portland and Pittsburgh, I’ve always thought they had alot in common. Turns out you all were one of those things! And now you’re right near that gorgeous ladyboy soldier statue. I wish you great success and happiness in The Burgh.
