The October dinner gathering is being held in honor of The Kinfolk Table cookbook release, and will be a global celebration of all that the cookbook represents: widespread and local community, timeworn recipes, and the simple joy of sharing food with friends and family. We hope these collective meals will become a way to invite new and old friends together, and to enjoy some of the favorite family recipes and dishes that we’ve all separately come to cherish.

 ARTIST: Meredit Dittmar     CATEGORY: Solo Exhibition      WHEN: October 17,2013


Olga Košica – jewellery designer, and Rok Marinšek –graphic designer, create jewellery collections under the name olgafacesrok. For the Milk Gallery they decided to present a mixed show exhibition entitled Heart, which follows their past jewellery collection called Inside Out. In this particular exhibition the main subject is heart as the object of different emotional stories and characteristics. What is on the inside tells a different story the moment it becomes visible, a story from the reverse perspective. What is hidden from the eye and therefore doesn’t appeal can be given a new dimension once it is exposed to a different view.


Košica earned a masters degree at the Royal College of Art, London, while Marinšek completed visual communication studies at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design. Their work takes inspiration from contemporary art, sculpture, painting, street art motifs as well as the metropolis and nature. Their contemporary jewellery makes use of a variety of materials from acrylic glass to metal and ceramics – combining multiple materials and techniques. In their most recent jewellery project presented at the official Paris Fashion Week schedule in collaboration with the China based designer Masha Ma, they have explored new technologies, in particular 3D printing.

Live act with Katja Sulc // Twisted Delight produced by PIER
Following the sensual loving scream of first two single releases, “I Love You You Scream“ (2010) and “There Will Be Boys“ (2012), Katja released the album “Twisted Delight” in March 2013. Rooted in hypnotic rhythms of reggae and dubstep, the record can be described as musically diverse, drawing from a variety of styles, including soul, jazz and r’n’b, evoking sensual thoughts and taking the listener’s body and soul on a musical journey infused with twisted delight and deep calming rhythms …

 ARTIST: OneForWall     CATEGORY: Solo Exhibition      WHEN: October 03,2013


Meredith Dittmar is an artist living and playing in Portland OR. Born near Boston Mass, she grew up in a world of pet pigs, horses, hay-forts and spy games . Follow this with an education in computer science, a career in interactive design, a compulsive need to create, and a drive to Seek and you get the major elements of her person and work.


Her characters are frequently involved in quiet expressive moments, or lounge facing their audience so they can share their inner space. Dittmar believes it is this space we recognize in ourselves, and through convening in that space, the interconnectedness of all things is revealed. She sees the act of spontaneous artistic creation as part of a larger practice of being present, and a way to better understand herself and reality.


Dittmars human-animal-plant-energy amalgams contain threads of common elements and colors to express deep levels of union across themes of biology, technology, and consciousness.

 ARTIST: Ramon Maiden     CATEGORY: Solo Exhibition      WHEN: May 18,2013


I was born in 1972 in Barcelona, but I’ve never felt bound anywhere and I have traveled extensively. I lived in other countries and I considered NYC as my second city. I have never studied art and my training as an artist has been entirely self-taught.


My training, ideas, sources of inspiration… are all dynamic and changing, and so are the techniques and methods I employ. I try not to focus on anything too specific and progress by using different sources and experimenting. My training as a social worker, my passion for traveling, my family history and my experience with visual arts…are all very diverse and not at all uniform, which allows me to be very creative.I recently started painting on wood, is a bit complicated because you have to be very careful and delicate, but the result is very rewarding.


My work is a reflection of my way of life, my career, training, experiences, travels, interests. It is difficult to define and is constantly moving, growing and modified on the fly. I am very interested in history, the ancient religions, politics and my art is imbued with that.My style is very characteristic and people are usually identified quickly. I try not only cause visual impact and also convey a message, idea, purpose..I perceive the tattoo as a form of artistic expression. Many of the artists I follow not only deal with tattoos, but they are also very good at other types of art. Lola Garcia, Seth Wood, Dr. Lakra, , Annie Frenzel, Sebastian Domasche, Matthias Boechtter, Ryan Mason or Amina Charai are excellent tattooists, great artists and friends.


It is difficult to identify what my style, it’s usually quite changeable and I like to have different sources of inspiration. I love the historical motives and many of my works are steeped in it. The world wars, the Victorian era, the American 20’s ,… attempt to combine many of my illustrations. I like to shake consciences, give some thought and religion and politics are also present in my work
