VIOLENCE and GLITTER: Show Opening

The opening for Violence and Glitter was packed.  There were about 150 people who filtered in and out of the event over the course of a few hours. We received online publicity through  Out of Print Magazine , Philly Weekly Online, Temple University News , Phillyist , and McJawn.  Good news spreads!  We also sold a few pieces at the show which was an extra bonus. Word of mouth, Facebook event invitations, blog entry, flyering, and posters in windows of all the local businesses (which I am lucky to have the support of, especially The Foodery, Liberties Parcel, and Druid's Keep).  Liberties Parcel did all the printing--if anyone is interested, they're at 2nd and Brown and they use recyclable wax-based ink which is a new type of printing that is environmentally friendly. 

If anyone has additional questions or comments or would like to purchase any work from the event OR stop in to see the show (appointment only) please shoot me an email at

Thanks to all the artists who participated and made the event a diverse and interesting collection of work!
