?It's that time of the year again — Murmur's Printed Matter. Now in its fourth year, the event is moving to Murmur's dedicated space on Broad Street. Bring cash as the exhibition hosts a slew of zines made by artists, writers and local folks. All zines are under $10 and proceeds benefit Murmur's 2016 Atlanta Zine Fest. The event goes down on Fri., Nov. 20, from 6-10 p.m. and it's free to attend.

? FRIDAY
? >> Susanna Starr returns to the Marcia Wood Gallery (Midtown) for her third solo exhibition with Hyperglo. Starr's neon wall sculptures seem to " vibrate with a hallucinogenic glow as they penetrate the physical environment with surprising physicality for work of such ethereal delicacy." This is the artist's ongoing physical exploration of color with handcut pieces out of Mylar. The exhibition opens on Fri., Nov. 20, from 7-9 p.m.
?
? >> George Long and David Baerwalde's temporary gallery space at Ponce City Market, Pile, evolves every Friday night as they add new pieces. On Fri., Nov. 20, Pile Fridays kicks off session 3 with performances from musicians Hiron Roy, Danny Bailey and Rafael Villanueva. Performances start at 8 p.m.

As usual, the first 250 attendees get a swag bag, designed by Maryink and Lucy Ricketts Illustration. $5 to get in the door. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days. Go support local artists and get your holiday gift list checked off all in one place, all while listening to DJ Zano spin some tunes.
