From sidewalk to stage

Rafael Snchez and Kathleen White aren't just artists—they're also booksellers, offering a wide array of new and used publications at their makeshift outdoor newsstand in the West Village (Hudson St between Bank and W 11th Sts).

The duo get a real kick out of the performance-art aspects of their entrepreneurship. This weekend, they're transferring the street drama indoors to the Gene Frankel Theatre for a "real-time event" called "Table," featuring daytime sales and readings at night by lots of cool people, including...

Writer Bruce Benderson (his latest book is his highly acclaimed memoir The Romanian).

P.S. Kathleen's paintings are currently on display at uptown's prestigious Mary Boone Gallery. She's a Renaissance type of gal.
