With Friday just around the corner it's time to announce a special event that Quarter Yellow Studios and JungleScience will be hosting. That's right boys and girls. The ARTIST BLOCK PARTY IS COMING! What's that you ask? Well it's a party....for artists with artist's block. Come bond over the fact that everyone gets artist's block, whether it be from working on a painting, essay, poem, film, or whatever. This will be a party to socialize with other artists and art appreciators, to enjoy food and drinks, to listen to live music, and most importantly.... to CREATE. Worried you won't have time to attend? Don't worry the party goes from 7 pm to 12 am. So don't miss out on the event that will surely get rid of your artist's block...and be the highlight of your weekend.
For more information on this awesomeness check out the event on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/144669322377926/?group_id=190959937676924
Well, March is almost over (somehow), which means its almost time for the next First Friday. This April, QuarterYellowStudios will have The SMS Series by Ed Jones on display, which focuses on the text messages which people have never found them selves able to delete.
I will not try to explain the concept behind the show myself, but will rather use a quote by the Artist, Ed Jones, to do so;
"Text Messaging has completely changed the way we interact with each other, and as a result, we have begun to attach sentimentality into the texts we save, and refuse to delete. The SMS Series is a portrait study and observation of ten different people's messages, along with ten from the artist, along with the stories behind them. The portraits cover an array of topics, and a slough of emotions. Also featured at the show will be a slideshow of texts received during project development, and a way for viewers to interact using their own messages, right in the gallery space."
This is going to be a truly unique experience and entirely unlike anything you've ever seen at QuarterYellowStudios, or anywhere else for that matter! And if that weren't enough there will be a Living Canvas exhibit, right in the main space of JungleScience as well!
Before I go, I just want to take a moment to thank everyone for coming out to the Comedy Show we hosted on March 8th. We had a great crowd which really contributed to it!
Last thing, QuarterYellow is in the process of some big plans, so stay tuned to hear about all of them, as well as for a special conceptual blog to be posted this week. Until then,
We had quite an amazing Weekend here at QYS between the closing ceremony of Jamil and Jamals show, A Fine Line, group exhibition curated by yours truly at the First National Bank of Binghamton, as well as a visit from artist extraordinaire, Will Teran. I just want to thank Will and everyone else who was part of this weekend and made it so great. We will not forget it! Also congrats to Jennifer Onativia on selling both her pieces!
