The 1000 Parker Street Studios opens for the third annual PARKER ART SALON with a unique fine art exhibition from May 5th to May 7th. The hallways of 1000 Parker Street Studios will offer a salon-style exhibition of painting and sculpture; the rugged, working warehouse will be transformed into an elegant fine art exhibition with music, food and wine.
Building upon the overwhelming success of the two previous spring-time exhibitions, PARKER ART SALON will feature 65 artists for one amazing weekend. 1000 Parker Street Studios is best known as the creative hub and focal point for the annual Eastside Culture Crawl. “ We are different from the Crawl, “ explains PAS director Niina Chebry, “ Perhaps the greatest difference is that our event is more intimate – with everyone in the hall, the artists side by side – it seems to spark more conversation. And with only 10 x 10 feet of real estate to exhibit their best work, essentially our Salon is curated by each artist.”
Friday night May 5th is the Grand Opening Reception and soiree. In the hallways under the light of chandeliers, art lovers will mingle, enjoy wonderful music, canapes and refreshment. They also benefit from being the first to see – and purchase – all exhibited works. “Our SMALL ART Exhibit is very popular – it’s like a preview to the whole exhibition, says Niina Chebry. Each piece is priced at $200, so it’s best to get there early if you don’t want to miss out.“
Tickets for the Grand Opening Reception are $20, available for purchase on March 1st through AnxietyBC’s website: TIX FOR OPENING RECEPTION and at the event. Ticket price includes one drink and an exhibition catalogue. Proceeds from the ticket sales and SMALL ART Exhibit will go to AnxietyBC.
On Saturday, May 6th and Sunday, May 7th, the PARKER ART SALON is free of charge and open to the general public from 12:00 – 4:00 pm. Over the course of the weekend, the PARKER ART SALON will feature artist talks, chance encounters in artist studios and more.
