After a busy Saturday (11.21) spent roaming the aisles of DesignerCon, collectors, artists and well regular people headed over to the Holiday Party at the Switcheroo workshop. The event was half art show, half party.
In terms of art, the show featured work from Tim Biskup, Amanda Visell and Michelle Valigura. In addition to Biskup x Visell collaborative wood HelperCentaurEphunt (ed of 25) and Tim’s Big Pink Voodoo Pollards, there were a few new customs and original paintings and drawings from both Tim and Amanda. Eager to put the others in their place, Michelle offered a brand new collection of ceramic pieces including vases decorated with curious and whimsical faces. All three artists opened up their considerable archives for holiday shoppers with some good deals to be had.
Did we say party ? Definitely. Mix in a mini-keg of Craftsmen 1903, a heap of banh mi sandwiches, an accordion player, and a creme de la creme toy crowd and you get… a pretty mellow evening 😉 We were surprised by the doodling on tissue boxes – but hey by any means necessary right ? The night ended with some ‘vandalism’ courtesy of Dril One’s tagging of a paper towel roll in the restroom. Clever ‘phunt’. Enjoy the pics – plenty of recognizable faces in the crowd. Btw, Amanda Visell will be offering some web exclusive items shortly – keep watching her blog.
