2nd Bar Napkin Biennale
- From Nathan Vonk, who does the art tours on First Thursday in Santa Barbara:
>Nathan Vonk <nathan@...>
> I'm writing to invite you to participate in the Santa Barbara Art Collaboartive's next Bar Napkin Biennale to take place in early November. We are accepting submissions and having a live drawing session with participating artists at Roy on November 3rd, from 11 am to 6 pm, with the possibility of it running later into the night as logistics permit. This work will be compiled and curated to fit within the 2 walls at the Arts Fund on the 7th, where the napkins will be part of a silent auction with a reception on Saturday the 10th, ending Tuesday the 13th. Spill over work will likely be compiled and shown in a flip book format adjacent to the walls in question. A silent auction would be held for all pieces displayed and the funds will go to the Arts Collaborative.
> Funds from the event will be used to extend the SBAC's insurance to allow the organization to umbrella other arts groups under their policy. The SBAC has for a long time wanted to be able to provide liability insurance for smaller arts organizations that are not able to afford a policy for themselves. This will be put to use specifically by small theater troupes, but could be used for impromptu exhibitions or concerts in non-traditional spaces.
> We'll supply all the napkins and media on the 3rd, of course. I hope you can make it. It is a great opportunity to hang out with other artists and cool people generally in a totally informal setting.
> Please let me know if you would like to participate, and feel free to spread the word to any artist that you think might be interested.
