Braddock Again ~ Invasion

Hello to all. I want to post about this, but I'm not sure how much I can leak to you as it's still in it's infancy. So for now I'll be giving you the bare bones and therefore just teasing you.

Over the past 2 months I've been organizing, with Maggie Negrete and a few other folks, a group art show in Braddock, PA at the artspace Unsmoke Systems. The show is set to happen mid-October, the Opening Reception on October 21, 2011. The prospective artists have already been selected, a good handful have since agreed through informal conversations. We'll be sending out our proposal to a little over 20 Pittsburgh based artists next week. The name for the show is not yet decided, but by tomorrow it will be finally decided.

The show will be based in installation, traditional art exhibiting (framed pieces, sculptural, etc.), experiential and on-site/site specific painting or multi-media. So essentially it's a creative free-for-all of sorts. We don't have total creative freedom in this space, but the gallery owner/operator, Jeb, is an awesome dude and is allowing us a lot of flexibility. That is actually the primary reason for having it in Braddock at this particular location. The hardest part will be promoting this and convincing people to travel all the way to Braddock just for an art show. So start spreading the word now. Unfortunately that is all the information I can release at the moment. Once all of the artists have been confirmed I'll make a more complete post. Until then just wallow in your own anticipation please!
