The Artist Project 2014 Opening Party
The Artist Project held an opening party for its 7th annual fair at the Better Living Centre, showcasing incredible artists.
The party was jammed with all of us eager to see new and exciting art, and we were not disappointed. All styles of art were on display including pop modern style of Todd Monk, photography from Eric Farache, and landscapes from Jeremy Browne. For the Set Sail competition, artists were asked to reinterpret the nautical theme in their own unique style. Sony sponsored an installation from seven photographers who were created pieces using the Sony A7 camera.
Kim Stanford‘s “Yes I’m Trying to Pick You Up” penis shaped sock sculptures generated a lot of buzz from attendees. The “Why We Ink” exhibit featured photographs of people who had tattoos to commemorate their survival from cancer. In addition, Black Line Studio provided free tattoos as well.
Of course seeing all the amazing art made one quite hungry. Hot Bunzz provided gourmet buns stuffed with jerk wild boar, Brazilian bbq beef and 5 cheese wild Mushroom with spinach. The “bunzz” were perfectly complemented with Tromba Tequila. Other dishes included eggplant parmigiana from Ganzi, blow-torched mackerel on rice from Hapa Izakaya, and tomato bocconcini from Buonanotte. We also had the chance to sample spices from Jaswant’s Kitchen and some No.7 hot sauce. For the sweet tooth, there was Meyer lemon mousse from Baker Street and doughnuts from Jelly Modern.
Drinks were plentiful including Barefoot Wine and Bubbly, Slava Vodka cocktails and Kraken Rum.
Many thanks to The Artist Project for a fabulous evening and a perfect way to get to know some very talented artists.
