As you all may well know we have moved to a new address, 2 blocks north from our old location, at 2311 Frankford Avenue. March is a month of rebirth and the new storefront needs a lot of work including new floor, new lighting, new drywalling, a new paint job, and a lot more. To recoup some of these expenses we are holding a community-based fundraiser on Saturday, March 19th, 2011 starting at 2pm.
Come join us for a full day of artful moments and nostalgic memories as we celebrate our 1-year anniversary.
Here is a list of activities you can look forward to: Doors open at 2pm.
There will be multiple vendors selling their wares, crafts, zines, comics, jewelry, food items, and other various items from the local art community. Currently we have room for up to 10 vendors. Each table costs $10 for all day. If interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Face painting for the kids and adults for only $3. Our painters can make you a tiger, or a lion, or just plain far-out.
Live wall painting of our Exquisite Corpse leading to the Dream Oven.
Sam Cusumano's noise-bent toys will return in a new static installation throughout the gallery space.
50/50 Raffle tickets will be sold for various grab bags and other great art-filled prizes to go home with.
With weather permitting we will have an all day BBQ in our backyard with hot dogs, burgers, veggie burgers, and assorted toppings, as well as various refreshments.
Doors to the Dream Oven (in the basement of VWVOFFKA) will open and live music will commence, featuring members of the VWVOFFKA family and friends including Birds of Maya, Party Photographers, Petal Shield, Lagomasino/Fishkin, and The Soft Sea, DJing between sets. Here is a link to the show event page: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=192474920773691 Doors at 7pm. Cost: $3-5 sliding scale, donation based.
All funds earned will go directly into rehabilitating the new store front space. Please stop by if you'd like to help out or even if you would like to just check out the new space. This takes place two days before the first day of spring, so hopefully we can look forward to warm weather and a nice full day well spent together. See you then!
If you'd like more information, or have an idea to help fundraise, please send an email to email@example.com. Thanks so much!
