Ed. Varie is pleased to present the premier of FOUNDATIONS Magazine on Thursday July 10th, 6-9pm. "The Open Issue" will be the first printed edition of FOUNDATIONS Magazine. Created by young innovators, FOUNDATIONS Magazine will be printed on a Bi-Annual calendar focusing on emerging to mid-career art, film and writing from around the world. The Open Issue will include contributions in Art by Erika Braukis, Zachary Chistensen, Andrew Hutton, Marianne Vlaschits, Sebastian Gladstone, Kyle Roberts, Roxana Eslamieh, Theo Slavin; in Writing: Lila Gray, Nicholas Christensen, Sam Coggeshall, Josh Shaffer; and with Interviews of, Ray Potes, Lizzie Wright, and Josh Rofe. In celebration of it's inaugural issue in print, Los Angeles based artist Kyle Roberts will perform 20x20, composed of 20 short performances pieces in approximately 20 minutes, the order of which is chosen by the audience. 20x20 can be seen as a series of pantomimes reflecting the absurd and predicable nature of modern life. As a work of art it aims to expose these denials of reality and create an interactive experience that is genuine, which leaves viewers with a lasting impression of the underlying motivations of the human condition. "Its loud, its chaotic, its sweaty and honestly its really fun..." Kyle Roberts, as interviewed by Creative Culture Worldwide. Thursday July 10th will also mark Ed. Varie's 4 1/2 year anniversary as an interdisciplinary gallery promoting up and coming, emerging, and undiscovered artists worldwide. Inspired by the fundamentals of open programming, Ed. Varie exhibits artists of all media, and encourages the exploration of new concepts in the artistic practice. With a mission to unite artists in various stages of their careers to a community in Manhattan and beyond, Ed. Varie represents and mentors a wide range of artists both nationally and internationally. Our 4 1/2 year Anniversary Bash, FOUNDATIONS Magazine launch and 20x20 Performance will take place in the backyard of Ed. Varie for ONE NIGHT ONLY, Thursday July 10, 2014.

A Thursday evening in July. Storytelling returns to the Bergino Baseball Clubhouse. For charity. You have somewhere better to be? A live competitive storytelling event to benefit the Photo ID Foundation Children and young adults battling life-threatening illnesses. The Photo ID Foundation puts cameras and other tools in their hands, allowing them to “speak” about their experiences in words and images. On a Thursday evening in July, you’ll have the chance to help. A unique variety of storytellers -- including an umpire, an immortal artist, a magazine editor-in-chief, a renaissance man, a doctor, and a Rabbi -- will each tell a story relating to the theme of “Baseball As Good Medicine.” They have five minutes tops to tell their story. A panel of judges will then lend their thoughts. All in good fun. You get to sit in the Clubhouse bleachers, enjoy a beer/beverage/ballpark snack and watch it take place in front of you. Seats are limited, with a contribution of $50. All proceeds go to the Photo ID Foundation. Do you really want to miss a great evening... and a chance to do good?
Losing a child is extremely difficult and deeply painful and is with you every day -- deeply changing who you are forever as a big piece of you is missing. Losing a child where you know it was preventable and there was proven negligence in a court of law has no words. After we lost our daughter Rebecca to a misdiagnosis in an ER from a viral infection, I studied and read more medical documents than I ever thought I would. After reading and working with top pediatric healthcare experts, I can tell you that it is WELL DOCUMENTED that ERs are not prepared for babies and children. This lack of preparedness includes the specialized training, equipment and supplies that babies and children need to not only get the correct diagnosis and treatment but also to survive. So for the past 8 years, R baby has created life-saving programs, including one of which I got an email last week that the doctor attributes our training to his ability to have saved a very ill 3 year old boy's life. We have also successfully been able to create a definition and criteria for pediatric emergency rooms where one did not exist before. As you know, any little or big action can make a huge difference in this world. So please share this post, attend this event, spread the word, do something to help this cause that affects all families no matter their background. Nothing we do will bring Rebecca back, and believe me I think about her a lot as an 8 year old girl.. what she would be doing, saying, playing and even wearing... but instead Andrew and I treat R Baby as our 4th child and work so hard to make sure all babies and children get the best available emergency healthcare. Together we can really make a real difference. Please help R Baby help all our families. www.rbabyfoundation.org/concert --Phyllis Rabinowitz
