From the WG News + Arts’ Art Editor:

Did you ever stop to think…?

Carrie Beckmann 7 BOMBAY BROOKLYN

Here we are, at the last print issue of the WG News + Arts, a paper of integrity and fun, exploratory attitudes and true grit. Every artwork represented in these (30lb groundwood) pages was made by a local Williamsburg/Greenpoint/Bushwick artist who is highly professional and has donated work to the cause of honest local reporting; all the proceeds from the sale of these artworks at auction will go toward paying back the paper’s outstanding receipts. And if there’s any money left over? It will be divided among the artists themselves.
