Guerrilla Art Show #8, Fri Nov 22, 2019, 6-9pm



It's Show #8
You Don't Want to Miss!

We are anticipating around 25 local and regional artists working in various media will exhibit.  Just like the previous Guerrilla Art Shows, all of the work shows up an hour before the doors open.  What ends up on display remains a mystery until then! 

Save the date and please help spread the word.
About Guerrilla Art Shows: These events have roots in the street art movement and are sometimes called “pop-up” shows. Our version is a little different: exhibiting artists are invited by a secret committee, and the names are not published or publicized in advance of the show. Artists are free to exhibit whatever they like (subject to a few simple rules) in the medium/media the artist uses. Artists are not even required to exhibit in true name, so there could be some real surprises!  Best of all, the artwork shown is for sale!

A bunch of reasons to attend:
It's like Black Friday but for art!
A chance to hang out with the cool kids and who doesn't like to do that?
Impress your friends with your cultural savviness.

You never know what kind of art will show up for the event.   Mysteries are fun, right?
Great chance to talk to some artists and ask them entertaining questions about their work.
Get yourself that art masterpiece you've always wanted but were afraid to look for.
Monkey business aside, this is going to be some serious fun.   Don't think about missing it
 
So here’s the important stuff:

Date: Friday, Nov 22, 2019
Time: Opens to the public at 6PM, goes until 9PM or so

The 6th Annual Between the Bluffs Plein Air Exhibition and Sale was a great success!

Thanks to everyone that came out to the 6th Annual Between The Bluffs Plein Air Exhibition and Sale Friday night. It was an incredible success! Congratulations to all of the collectors who made purchases! There were some real gems in the show that found new homes. Best of all, collectors had a chance to interact with the artists who created the works. There is no better way to collect original art than finding a painting that really speaks to you and then meeting the artist who created it. Numerous longterm friendships have been made this way. Thanks again to all who attended, the committee that organized the event, and the artists who participated. I look forward to seeing everyone again at the 7th Annual BTB Plein Air!
