Attention all artists! Arts Bash is an event to kick off a new initiative by Creative City Collaborative (the organization that operates Arts Garage) designed to bring together our regional cultural community. An open house for artists of all disciplines, this free event continues the dialogue of cooperation and collaboration among a variety of art forms and their creators. “Arts Bash is about education and collaboration,” said Dr. Jay Alperin, Vice-Chair of the Committee for Education and Outreach for the CCC. “This is a wonderful opportunity to have artists introduce themselves and make connections. Together, working as a team, we will create a center that will nurture artists, train them and help them build exposure.”
“We are very excited about hosting this event,” said Alyona Ushe, Executive Director of Arts Garage. “This is our first major step in uniting the regional arts community. The goal for this evening is for artists of all disciplines to get to know each other and share ideas. As Creative City Collaborative progresses with its mission, we hope to strengthen a growing and vital network of artists that will have a permanent and appreciated voice in the community. I really feel that we are building a solid foundation of creative energy that can prosper even more once the Arts Warehouse comes to fruition.” If you are a visual or performing artist, we invite you to join us for an evening of camaraderie and common purpose on Wednesday, August 15 from 6pm – 8:30pm. Enjoy complimentary food, drink and entertainment. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (put “ARTS BASH” in the subject line) to RSVP or for further information.
