"i made you a mix tape."
i really ought to have extended this invitation ages ago, but here it is, finally!
come on out tomorrow night - saturday, november 7th - for the 6th annual hot one inch action button art show!
w2 perel gallery
112 w hastings
button trading starts at 8pm!
hot one inch action, created and curated by chris bentzen and jim hoehnle, is a fun night of art and social interaction. this one-night only event showcases 50 buttons by 50 different artists. for $5 you'll receive a blind bag of 5 buttons and from there you are encouraged to trade with other attendees until you get all the buttons you want! a good way to sharpen your bargaining skills indeed. and yes, you are allowed to buy as many bags of buttons as you like! some live music, light snacks and a mini bar are usually present as well!
i am doubly excited for this year's show because i'll be one of the 50 artists featured again! this year it was a collaboration with my friend. if you're attending, keep a look out for "Dickbag" by kel/kel! what the button looks like, i cannot reveal just yet. (the photo above is of my 2006 button "i made you a mix tape.") hope to see some of you there!
