Fresh from the butcher.

Local artists on the bill include Peter Betancourt, Annabell Lee, Nikki Chasin and Sarah Taylor.

The festival takes place June 19 and 20 at 'ISM Gallery (167B NW 23 St., Miami) and Upper Eastside Garden (7244 Biscayne Blvd., Miami). Tickets go on sale April 11. For more information, visit
