Join the artists of Prime for the opening reception of their first group exhibition! Their work ranges from abstract to classical figurative, landscape to contemporary, and everything in between. There will be free food and libations, live music by The Elefant Family, a silent art auction with bids starting at only $3, and a raffle drawing where 11 lucky people will walk away with an original piece of art created by a member of Prime.
Prime is a group of starving artists who share a studio space together. They all begin with a primed potential surface upon which they develop their vision of opening their creative process to the public.
Prime wants to create an event showcasing a collaboration of different genres of painting and make them accessible for everyone. They are looking for innovative ways to turn everybody in the room into an active participant and a potential collector. In an effort to destroy the disconnect most viewers have when going to a gallery event, this group makes their creations affordable for everyone. Their emphasis is on making people excited about being able to own artwork and to be able to become a collector.
Why Prime? They have the intention of taking something that is usually for an elite group of people and making it available for everyone. Sharing art is their prime focus.
Exhibiting artists include:
Cathleen Van Bergen
