WHAT: "Stick Em Up!", the Twin Cities' first-ever all-sticker art showcase
WHO: One Dozen (12) artists, from across the US and International
It's pretty energizing when something new of its kind shows up and immediately grabs attention and captivates. That feeling of being on the cusp of the next big thing. That's exactly what gallery owner and contributing artist David Paul Seymour feels is happening with the announcement of the Twin Cities' first-ever all-sticker art showcase, "Stick Em Up!".
David is bringing in 11 other artists to participate in this 2-night-only event which will prominently display the work of graphic designers, stencil spray-painters and Sharpie-wielding sketch artists collectively on thousands of one-of-a-kind stickers. In addition to the surging piles of decals, the artists were challenged to"skin" a three-dimensional "street" object in their wares; ranging from a payphone to street signs, all of which will be auctioned off to the highest bidder on opening night, Thursday, January 5th.
Patrons of the gallery can also mob as many stickers as they can stuff into pre-purchased collector's sacks for $10 each.
