“A graf event like Color Codes isn’t a gallery exhibit with a static display of art. People are painting large scale on walls, trucks and shipping containers outdoors — with their creations happening in real time. You get to experience everything coming alive.” - ‘PHATE (Source)

Hello Friends, 

Gloom Balloon has the big painting from 80/35 set for auction. Proceeds will go to the Gay Men’s Choir. “Drive” is the next call for art at the Viaduct Gallery. Deadline is extended to July 18th.  Color Codes is this weekend. As Phate is describing this event as “a historical exhibition of creation”. Thirty artists are coming down to participate. Also, the Roach Social Zinefest is happening August 23rd. REGISTER HERE for the workshops with Rob Stephens and Deb Ander-Bond. Also, reserve a table for selling off your zines.

This weekend is full of potential encounters with art. I would like to encourage you to use the Art Beacon Calendar as your guide. You can tell the calendar to be apart of your smartphone calendar (email us if you are not sure how). This weekend is looking like this:
