Mage Art Experience: Interactive Art Show

Published Robbie - Thu, 02/27/2014 - 5:29pm

Enjoy an interactive and innovative art show at the Civic Media Center, brought to you by CerridwenWorks! The MageArt Experience is an art show that’s more than wine and cheese; it 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.

All raffle profits go to support the artists in the show. Beer and wine, as well as light refreshments, are available upon donation. Swing by as part of Artwalk or stay the evening for an immersive and enlightening experience.

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.

Art is an expressive form of magic that permeates our daily lives and allows social, economic, and psychological boundaries to be traversed. In this show, the artists are not the only creators; all guests are welcome to share in the artistic experience and enjoy the magic of art.
