Sketchy Party #2
Friday, August 12, 8 p.m.
Bakehouse Art Complex
561 NW 32nd Street
The first Sketchy Party packed a cafe with 400 people. This time weâ€™ve got 3.2 acres to play around with at the Bakehouse Art Complex, a compound of 70 artist studios that used to house an industrial bakery in the 1920s. These days, the BAC is home to a small army of emerging and mid-career South Florida artists, each with a work studio to pursue the muses wherever they lead.
At Sketchy Party #2, artists aplenty will be on hand to sketch your portrait throughout the night. Entry to the party is FREE FREE FREE. We will be selling the portraits for $30 (cash only), with half of the proceeds going to the artists and the other half to keep Sketchy Miami going strong. Thirty clams ainâ€™t nothing, but itâ€™s not much to get your personal art collection started â€” with a portrait of yourself, no less!
In addition to the portraits, we will be peddling a Sketchy Package for $10, which will get you a boatload of wonderful:
â€“ Joeyâ€™s life-affirming pizza (vegetarian available)
â€“ Honest Tea to quench your thirst on a fine summerâ€™s night
â€“ a $2 discount and free glass of wine at O Cinema, which will be hosting a midnight screening after the party
â€“ a collectible set of full-color Sketchy Miami postcards
The package will also include a raffle ticket. Prizes include original works and prints from several Bakehouse artists, free flash portraits, and other good stuff. That means for 10 bucks you might bring home a piece of art worth hundreds of dollars!
