TONIGHT: Roadwork At The Mark Bar
Those of you who have eaten at COCO 68 recently probably noticed the art work hanging in the back room. Well, the artist behind these works is Chris Smith and this evening he will be strutting his stuff at our very own Mark Bar! Here are the deets per his press release:
Happy New Year everyone!
Thanks to everyone for your support in the past year, 2009 is already off to a quick start! I’m taking over Brooklyn this month, with my “Roadwork Ahead” series of paintings at 3 locations
Help me celebrate by joining me this Wed at the Mark Bar. They are extending their Economic Bailout Happy Hour until 9pm (that means $3 for almost everything in the bar!!) and be sure to stick around for XXXTreme Bingo at 10pm (yeah you heard me!)
Booze, bingo, art and porn (a bag of which is one of the prizes offered at the Mark Bar’s XXXTreme Bingo Night) : I cannot think of a better way to spend a Wednesday night in Greenpoint!
January 14, 2008, 4:00 – 9:00 p.m.
The Mark Bar
1025 Manhattan Avenue
Brooklyn, New York 11222
Closing on an art-related note, some of you might have noticed that the Habitat recently reopened after taking a few days off for vacation. What you might not have noticed is what’s shaking upstairs.
The space is called The Ceeflat…
…and every Thursday night starting tomorrow, January 15, they’re hosting a live open figure drawing workshop. As it would happen one of my resolutions this year is to bone up on my draftsmanship (What’s the point of having a degree in Painting and Drawing if you don’t, in fact, draw anymore?). The promise of “costumes” and a paltry $15.00 fee will undoubtedly make this resolution easier for yours truly to stick with.
My fuzzy pink bunny ears are quivering with anticipation!
