TUESDAY | MAY 28 | 6-10PM | FREE | 21+ |
Presented by 111 Minna Gallery | Space: Zappa Room |
May 2013 edition of Sketch Tuesdays at 111 Minna Gallery
Live sketching/art making by local artists. Artwork is available for sale to the audience.
Sketch Tuesdays offers the local arts community a place to congregate, to talk, to create and to be seen. There is usually room for artists to just drop in and start drawing, but the good seats are reserved for the invited artists.
Art is for sale at reasonable prices and will be displayed until the event closes. This is a great opportunity to become a collector and to meet some very talented people!!
“..another example of really good value and the fun of collecting is the once a month Sketch Tuesdays at 111 Minna; 20 artists set up and draw or paint. Then they put it on the wall for between $5 and $30; the work is beautiful, cheap and plentiful” – Ron Turner, Last Gasp
“Once a month 111 Minna hosts Sketch Tuesdays featuring live drawing from local Bay Area artists. They drink and create and then sell their works for ridiculously low prices. I mean you can get some work from established artists for like $10. Granted the work isn’t one of their best, but shit, if you ain’t got the cash to buy a $1,500 piece by one of your favorites, $10 sounds pretty good to me. You can start collecting some of your favorites without breaking the bank… But besides all the art buying possibilities, it’s just a good time. Drink with your friends and watch talented artists create.” – John Trippe, Fecal Face Dot Com
“As evidenced by the endless hoopla surrounding Bob Ross’s television escapades, the artistic process is something people want to know more about. In response to this irrepressible need, 111 Minna Gallery offers up Sketch Tuesdays. The event itself intends to foster new relationships within the local visual art community, hopefully birthing dialogue, new ideas, and collaboration” – Michael Harkin, SF Bay Guardian
“The basic idea is that artists get together and hang out and make art and then they put it up for sale. The prices are exceptionally magnanimously marvelous, ranging from $6 to $30, most under $20. And we’re talkin’ good art by good artists. So for those of you who love art, but who aren’t doctors, lawyers, investment bankers, shipping magnates, patricians, children of privilege, and so on and so forth, Sketch Tuesdays is very possibly the best option in town to jump start that art collection you’ve always dreamed of having.”
