An exhibit of young artists, inspired by all aspects of the night; a combined gallery of paintings, photography, and stuffed media.
Hello night admirers,
We invite you to join us in appreciating the enigmatic hours between dusk and dawn through the eyes of ten talented and diverse artists. How?
We present The Night Gallery. Running for three nights only, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. For whom, you might ask?
The Night Gallery is an exhibit for young, local artists to share their artistic talents under the theme of dark beautiful masterpieces.
Darkness is the absence of light, but what is it really? That's the mystery that our artists explore, and we'd love for all of you to be there.
But if you can't be...we'll be sad...
There is, however, a way you can be there in spirit that will lift our spirits as well.
The Night Gallery requires very specific lighting to create the ambient glow of the evening and also keep the artwork well lit. We need lumber and fabric to create a seamless environment for our gallery. We'll have to pay for publicity, as well as transportation for our built frames and artworks.
If you can donate to build this exhibit with us, we'll send you a piece of the evening harvest. We've got rewards for all levels of backers; we strive to make your investment as lucrative as possible. Why?
Because, you, yes you, can help us create this glorious event that promotes art, community, fellowship, imagination, and beauty to humanity. We appreciate your support and hope that we can inspire you to rock the arts!
Where? At the Left Hand Printing Co. Located on 447 East King Street, Lancaster, PA 17602.
These hours are from 8pm - 2am from Oct. 19th - Oct. 21st.
Hope to see you there my children of the night.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
With this project there are bound to be some risks and challenges that stand in our way. Having experience coordinating a gallery, we know that the presentation, hanging of work, and viewer experience is the most important part. Challenges that we may encounter is gathering all the artists work in time due to everyone's busy schedule, appropriately lighting the works of art that ties into the dimly lit theme of The Night Gallery, and preparing refreshments and a mysterious atmosphere for all the viewers to enjoy. We will conquer these obstacles by having good communication with are artists everyday on Facebook and email, using the funding to get quality lights, put lots of funding into the food, decorations, and overall room setup for an experience like none other. A lot of work goes into setting up a gallery, but with Kurt and my many experiences before, we know how to react and solve all the discrepancies that might befall us.
