CerridenWorks presents: TigerMonkey Extravaganza 2.0

Published Robbie - Thu, 10/03/2013 - 2:28pm

Enjoy an interactive and innovative art show at the Civic Media Center, brought to you by TigerMonkey Creations and CerridwenWorks! After the benefit show in June, TigerMonkey Creations has partnered with CerridwenWorks to bring you an art show that’s more than wine and cheese. TigerMonkey Extravaganza 2.0 is focused on the intellectual, artistic, and social exchange among artists and guests. Experience the beautiful work of gifted visual and performance artists and share via open mic.

We ask for sliding-scale donations, from $5 to $15, for entry. All profits go to support the artists in the show. Beer and wine, as well as light refreshments, are available upon donation.

Both our guests and the participating artists have the opportunity to share their artistic experiences via open mic. You are encouraged to share your stories about art, beauty, and inspiration, respond to an artwork in the show, or perform spoken word. Too often is there a gap between the art and the appreciator, whether it is anonymity, unfamiliarity, or the distance between the stage and the audience. In Gainesville’s thriving artistic community, the gap is small, but can still be bridged by allowing guests and artists to switch roles in an artistic dialogue.

The event also features the "collaborative canvas.” Acrylics, pastels, crayons, charcoal, and pencils will be available at the event so that guests may contribute to the development of a large, unique work of art. This community-drawn artwork will be raffled off to a very lucky winner at the end of the night.
