We have another busy weekend coming up at the Boatworks. First at 5:00 pm on Saturday, October 1, 2011 is the opening reception for the Focus on 3D Three Dimensional Art and Sculpture Show. The exhibition includes 28 three dimensional artworks in a wide variety of media, and will remain on display through October 29th. The reception is open to the public and admission is free.

Then at 7:00 pm, the Boatworks becomes a performance space. We have a double bill of bands- WetCat, followed by Sons of Daughters. There will be a $5 cover charge for the musical portion of the evening. For more information about the bands and the continuing performance series, see the performance series page on the main website.

Art on the Edge Reception at Last

The Boatworks was filled with people tonight looking for some edgy fun. Even the food was part of the fun. That cream cheese skull and cupcakes were among the many treats brought in my BAC members, plus we had a few items provided by local businesses Sweet! and Matisse.

A good crowd was on hand tonight to enjoy the reception and to check out the 68 artworks on display.

The back room not only had some cool art on the walls, but also Dr Void and the Death Machines providing some rockin' music on our stage.

Meanwhile, local artist Doug Z (below) was set up outside, doing demonstrations of his spray paint and stencil technique.

Art on the Edge on View

The power has been fully restored at the Boatworks, so that means that the Art on the Edge show is now open for business. Above and below are photos of work in the front room gallery.

The show continues into the back gallery, with a similar wide variety of mediums, styles, and subjects, while all fitting the "Art on the Edge" theme for this exhibition.

This show is so big that we expanded into our new annex space, shown below.

The gallery is open from Wednesday to Saturday from 1:00 to 5:00 pm, and admission is free. The show remains on display through September 23rd, with a big reception (food, live music, art demonstration) on Saturday September 17th from 5 to 8 pm.
