BY THE PALE MOONLIGHT Ghosts, Ghouls, and other Creatures of the Night 1975 x Surface Salon’s Three Year Anniversary show. October 8 – November 5, 2011 Opening Night: Saturday, October 8, 2011, from 7-10pm It’s been three AWESOME years since 1975 and Surface first partnered up, and we can’t just contain the party to the old space. We’re going to kick off our next year by welcoming a new art space into our family, and this one is a doozy! Dubbed THE YARDS, this space is destined to be an amazing asset for Rochester! To make it even more special, we’ve reached out to an INCREDIBLE roster of talented artists to help us make this show even more memorable than our other shows. The show will be on the third floor above Flour City Bakery, in Rochester’s brand new art space (whose name will be revealed that night), located in the Rochester Public Market, 280 Union St. North, Rochester, NY 14609.
For the fourth year in a row, Bordo Bello is about breathing life into the Denver arts community. Our goal is to expand the audience of AIGA Colorado and open up the design community to incorporate the related artistic fields that help shape our culture. It all began with an idea by then AIGA Colorado Mentorship Director, Matt Bargell of Bargell Design, who named the event as dedication to his wife’s Italian heritage. Since then this wonderful concept has become one of Colorado’s premier artist events that brings together artists nation-wide for a common good.
Bordo Bello’s funds go to AIGA Colorado’s mentorship opportunities. This includes VSA Colorado/Access Gallery, Robert Taylor AIGA Colorado Scholarship fund, as well as the development of new programming (to be rolled out in 2012).
ARTCRANK Denver 2011 will be hosted and sponsored by Josh and Tran Wills’ new Super Ordinary Gallery, featuring the work of more than 30 local artists. The show will open on Friday, September 2 at 6:00pm, and also include a family-friendly Saturday showing from noon until 6:00pm. Admission is free, and limited edition prints of all posters will be sold for $40 on both days.
Dig this: we’re also teaming up with SoBe, Denver artist Mike Graves and screen printing studio by Black Cloud Workshop to stage a Try Everything party on Friday night, with Sobe sampling stations where you can experience all 31 flavors of SoBe, print-it-yourself SoBe t-shirts, and a live, bike-inspired collaborative mural created by the crowd during the show.
