Colab Art Night – Speed Dating Canvases

We are very excited to welcome back CoLab Art Night: the magic-makers evening that gave rise to Gamut Gallery.

This quarter we celebrate with “Speed Dating Canvases” …not REAL speed-dating! Instead of being paired with a stranger for a few minutes, participants rotate between different art supply stations so that by the end of the night everyone has gotten to explore a variety of media. It is an art party where you will have a brief encounter with a variety of art forms from acrylics to googly eyes. Connect with each medium for 7 minutes as music sets the mood, but when the beat stops…be ready to rotate to the next creation station!

Don’t worry about picking up the masterpieces left behind, this night is all about the process & not the outcome. As each genre is visited by a series of eligible experimenters, a roomful of collaborative artwork takes shape. Witness the hilarious, the clever, and the surprisingly evocative works that are created by a community looking for a canvas to love. Singles, couples, artists, beginners: it all adds up to a wild affair.

“Speed Dating Canvases,” will be set amidst Spit Shade 3: Sailors and Sweethearts, an exhibition celebrating the tattoo community. Curated by Adam Underwood and Rachael Bringgold, Spit Shade 3 showcases work from over 50 local & national artists expressing their individual creations and interpretations of this year’s theme, Sailors & Sweethearts. Thank you to #SpitShade curator Rachael Bringgold for this great image.
