Arty Party, Aug. 30, 7-10 p.m., The Gallery Below, 718B N. Weber St., $5, facebook.com/thegallerybelow.
ot an ongoing art project that you can’t seem to find time or inspiration to finish? Looking to dip into different mediums but don’t know where to start? The Gallery Below
isn’t just a place for artists to display their work — it’s also for artists of all skill levels and genres who come to play. These last-Thursday Arty Parties come with a built-in group of supportive artists, as well as materials to experiment with (though folks are obviously welcome to bring their own). Surrounded by the artwork on the walls (currently The Weird and Wonderful World of Joshua Coates
), attendees can get inspired, listen to music and — for a little extra inspiration — partake in some adult beverages.
