THE VELVET SHOW
Illn’s Velvet Show, held from April 5th to 21st at Chapel Arts Gallery!
We will begin to hang the work from April 5th and you can preview the show by appointment! Then Saturday, April 21st, we will be holding our Grand Closing Event, open to the all for the low low $5.00 cover! This is the night after the Foundation Show Opening, and so between the two you’ll have a great chance to relax and blow off some steam at the end of term! I know I intend to get adorably drunk on both counts, bring your cameras!
Submissions for the show are open from April 5th right up until the closing and all works can be dropped off in the dropbox at NB279!
For materials and supplies we suggest Dressew 337 West Hastings Street, who have velvet for between $7.99 and $12.99 per meter! Feel free to use any color and style!
Please feel free to contact us with any questions, suggestions, or to book an appointment to view the work!
Monocles and bubble pipes encouraged!
