Pumpkin Carving Contest and Benefit

October 19, 2011 § Leave a comment




Homegrown Alabama and the Alabama Art Kitchen are joining together to present a Pumpkin Carving Contest Extravaganza! All we need now are the carvers- could that be you? You can either bring your own pumpkin to carve or pay $5 to carve one of ours. (To use one of ours we need to hear back by Wednesday 10/19 to get an idea of number of pumpkins). There will be an adult and kids contest separately. All the pumpkins will be auctioned off to benefit Homegrown Alabama and the Kitchen. So if you’re not into carving you can come and get one of the amazing artists pumpkins to proudly display for Halloween (while supporting our awesome organizations)!








Resurrection Show, Screen-Printing, and Reading!

October 5, 2011 § Leave a comment

Thursday, October 6 (Art Night) from 6-9pm, we have the opening for
our Resurrection show. Artists took unfinished pieces and mailed them
around the country so they could finish each other’s work
collaboratively. We’ll have work from artists you haven’t seen before
presented in a way you probably aren’t used to. The show will be
amazing, as will the company.

For those of you who weren’t able to make it out to our last
screenprinting class (or could and got an appetite for the medium),
we’re having another one Saturday, October 8 from 12-4pm. We wanted
this class to be more accessible, so it’s a sliding scale fee, $15-35.
If you can pay full price, please do, because your generosity helps
less fortunate members of the community afford these classes. You can
create a design to print during the class or bring a transparency with
your previous work on it (e-mail us for instructions).

And finally, we have a reading by Amanda Moore. On Friday, October 14
at 7pm, Amanda will be reading her poetry and short stories in the
gallery. Her visual art has been in our gallery shows, and she’s so
talented in so many ways that I just want to throw up. Don’t miss it!

And of course, come down and make art! If you aren’t a member, ask us
about becoming one
