Acquiring Art from Art All Night

To say Art All Night in Lawrenceville is a happening, would be an understatement.  Over a thousand pieces of art are hung and displayed for 24 hours.

No jury, any medium- just ONE piece per artist. No exceptions.

It takes a ton of volunteers to organize, create and support this community event.   Check all the art in, check all the art out.  Make sure the artists get back their artwork.

There’s lots of music, comedy, yoga, mosaic making, live art, children’s activities and T-shirts for sale to wear until next year which will be the twentieth year.

Here’s the great part- thousands of people attend the show.  This year Steve and I went on the peaceful Sunday morning instead of the wild and crazy and heavily populated Saturday night.  An artist friend had taken in my Mill at Night photograph along with his painting. He’d encouraged me to participate again this year.

When I saw the piece below on one of the panels, it spoke to me.  I got the contact information off the tag and called the artist right away.   This afternoon we met at the bookstore in the Waterfront and check out how she packaged her art.

Thanks Jill.  I am thrilled to have your “Corona” in my home.

IMG_3903We exchanged email and contact information and hope to knit together sometime soon.

 

A gallery from Art All Night so you can get the feel for the event.   Remember my visit was early Sunday morning so it was sparse as far as viewers go but there were plenty of volunteers.

18th Art All Night 2015 Pittsburgh PA

Just got back from this wild event, the 18th ART ALL NIGHT in Lawrenceville.

Saturday morning I went down and registered a photograph that is hanging there now and I’ll pick it up Sunday afternoon.  This is the first year I’ve participated.  What a crowd!

Here are some of the patrons waiting to get into the warehouse to see the hundreds of artworks displayed. There are artists creating “LIVE ART” that will be auctioned or sold at noon Sunday.

Thanks for allowing me to blog you and your dogs!  Here are some Lawrenceville “neighbors” of the event.
