Featured Artists:
Math-You Namie – www.mathyounamie.com
Layering the simple, thick lines of classic comic book illustrations over boldly-patterned fabrics, Math-You Namie creates delightfully pop portraiture.

Lindsay Bourget – www.lindsaybourget.com
Evoking fragmented and dreamlike imagery, print-maker Lindsay Bourget incorporates woodland animals, typographic symbols, ornate borders and tango sheet-music in her mixed-media works.

Lauren Bahr – www.laurenbahr.com
Combining elemental shapes with a warm palette of flesh and jewel tones, Lauren Behr’s kaleidoscopic “triangulations” celebrate the crystalline geometry of shattered forms.

...along with a 360° immersive video installation from-
The Glass Bead Collective – www.glassbeadcollective.org
Armed with high-power projectors, the A/V agitators of the Glass Bead Collective tackle contemporary issues by altering physical spaces. Their multidisciplinary works include “guerrilla art projections” at Ground Zero, several documentary films and numerous site-specific video/sound installations. For Gros Fête, they will explore “simplified realities” by transforming the Gallery Bar into a 360° immersive art installation.

We will also have a 0% commission merchandise table featuring wares from local artists, and expect prizes and giveaways throughout the night!
