Slideluck Potshow This Friday
Whatcha up to Friday night? How about an exciting night of art, cool people and food? Why don't you head out to an art studio in the 90034 to check out the Slideluck Potshow. Slideluck Potshow is a gathering of members of the arts, photography, and media communities to share and celebrate art in one night. Based in New York and held in many cities internationally, SLPS is the first ever digital art salon and potluck in one event and it’s about to have another go in Los Angeles.
You can check out a slideshow from a wide variety of artists plus it's a potluck, so make it or buy it - head over to enjoy all the goodies. About 30 artists will be featured and each presentation lasts about five minutes, so it can maintain the attention of even the most ADD Angelino.
For more information about the LA event look here or on the main home page. They also have a blog here and got press on the ninth installment in New York in March in the New York Times.
To RSVP for this event please email here by 5pm tomorrow (June 29th.)
