Art Exhibition inspired by the Cocktail Party era of the late 1950's / early 1960's
Friday, February 17, 6-11pm. "Its all about style, Dahhhling!" as EGAD Art Lab, Out'A Space Mid-Century Modern Furniture and Matt's Casbah team up for an exhibition of art and more... inspired by the Cocktail Party era of the late 1950's / early 1960's.
Details are shrouded in sparkling secrecy until opening night, but co-curators Derek Gores and Nicole Meyers promise something for all the senses. Expect colors, themes and clever styling of the period. "Step into the relaxed glamour of the era," says Meyers, "with flowing music, timely libations by Matt's Casbah, and of course, dazzling art."
"There's already quite a buzz for the show," says Gores, "The period really resonates with our Space Coast, with a few generations now having lived and worked in this particular glow. Plus, it's just fun."
Guests are encouraged to dress the part. "Mad Men? Audrey Hepburn? The Glamourous Housewife? Up to you...", says Gores. "Be sure to look sharp!"
Opening Night, Friday, February 17, 6-11 pm. The exhibit runs through March 12. EGAD Art Lab's regular hours are Monday through Saturday, 10-6, and by appointment.
VIP Preview, Thursday, February 16, 6-8 pm. Featuring De-Luxe artwork by David Burton, Jeff Filipski, Heather Everett, John Sluder, Foundry by M, Derek Gores, Cliffton Chandler, Kilroy, David Books, Kilroy, Jamila Jelani, Sone, Christopher Brewer, Speerbot and more.
