Holy hell, the year is almost over! Is anyone else going through the end-o-year panic?
If you are like me, you haven't started holiday shopping cause you are piling your metaphorical plate so high that a single to-do meatball would send your brain spaghetti sliding into a dripping pile of mush on the floor while you crawl into bed with a bottle of wine and ignore the mess.
But, hey, we're going to make it through this season, and have a damn good time while doing it, dammit! I'm going to do all my shopping while slinging leather goods at the Strange Girls Holiday Night Market this Saturday! Join me if you wanna turn your obligatory holiday shopping into a fun time with beer and art.
The people at Modist Brewing Co. fucking rock! Not only do they brew good, interesting beers, they support local artists like whoa. Their resident artists hail from the collective Rogue Citizen and they often collaborate with the artist collective that I am a part of, A Conspiracy of Strange Girls.
From November 18th- December 16th, Modist has been host to the Conspiracy of Strange Girls Annual Members' Art Show. Over 15 collective members made art around the theme of "Covenant". Based on the oft-misinterpreted proverb, "The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb", we made art that paid homage to our choices, the contracts we make, the agreements that we decide to uphold, and our chosen family.
Saturday, December 16th will be the last chance to see the show and will be a great opportunity to shop for holiday gifts, while supporting your local, strange artists, and chug delicious beers.
I added a couple of beer related items to my leather goods roster for the beer lovers on your shopping list.
Interact Center for Visual & Performing Arts will be co-hosting the event and all proceeds from interactive games (including a prize wheel and bad advice booth) will go to the center, to aid in their mission to create art that challenges the perceptions of disability.
Here are a few of the artists that will be at the Holiday Market:
