We invite you to join us on Thursday, September 12, for a fundraiser to help us actualize our vision of creating a warm, active, inventive and purposeful art space and workshop. The winter is not so kind to our large, wide gallery and last year the REVERSE team made it through the cold by using space heaters. However, this year we hope to be better prepared. This fundraiser will help offset costs of installing a heating system so that we can continue to use our space on Frost Street and work towards a warmer winter.
A year in and REVERSE has burgeoned into a project-based exhibition space and laboratory for multidisciplinary and experimental artwork created by innovative, boundary-breaking individuals. It is without a doubt only through the love and support of the artists and creative, community-focused people around us that we have made it thus far. As we move into our second year the REVERSE team is working hard to make the space better by improving our public programs and crafting exhibitions and events that engage and excite the neighborhood around the gallery, as we transition to a non for profit/fiscally sponsored program structure.
DEFROST will feature a silent art auction including works generously donated to the fundraiser by the REVERSE artist community as well as friends of REVERSE. Music will include a performance by Elliott Sharp, who exhibited at the gallery this past May, musical guest Ancient History as well as a guest DJ. VIP and Benefit tickets will give you access to your choice of a digital artwork created by one of our REVERSE artists, click here to browse through the images. After purchasing your ticket, REVERSE will send you a link where you can download the piece along with instructions from the artist on how to print it.
