Art After Dark: Lumiere Lounge
Art After Dark
Third Thursdays, 7pm - 11pm
Have you ever wished you had a supportive group of artists around to share ideas with, spend time making art with, and - most importantly - motivate you to get up off of your couch and MAKE SOMETHING? Us too. Which is why we're introducing Art After Dark on the third Thursday of the month - a space for visual artists to gather together, bring what they're working on, and share a few hours together communing, sharing, drinking, and creating.
We encourage artists to bring whatever they feel like working on - maybe you have a piece that you've been working on a while and can't get unstuck on, or maybe you want to start something brand new. Don't have anything you're working on? We'll have monthly themes for those who want some inspiration. We'll also provide a space for work-shopping pieces and discussing what we're working on, what challenges we might be facing, and where we tap into our inspirations.
Writers World: Every month, resident writer (Gunnar Ohberg) will provide a short story prompt. From this prompt, artists will have the chance to create a companion piece of artwork. At the end of the evening, the best piece will be chosen to be published along with the completed short story.
Raffle: Ever wished your bar tab got you more at the end of the night than a single sad tear shed from your anthropomorphized debit card? You're in luck! Each drink (or other item) you buy at Art After Dark gets you another entry into a raffle to win a first prize original piece of art by McKenzie Snow, or a runner up prize of art supplies.
Bring on the paints, the easels, the charcoals, the sketchbooks, the watercolors, the tablets - and if you're not an artists but you still want to spend time with us, we've got you covered with adult coloring books and colored pencils and pens to zen out with.
All are welcome. Remember to respect the space, and bring appropriate drop materials if your paints get messy. Hosted by Justin Simmonds. 21+. No cost to participate,
