Good Morning jolly people! What have you got planned for today? Anything exciting?
A little tearoom near me, called Like A Teatray In The Sky have just opened a gallery. To mark the launch they are hosting Monk Jam 2. They have carefully selected 20 local artists to take part.
Each artist will be given the same brief and 72 hours to create a bespoke piece of wall hung art no larger then A2. Once the deadline has passed all work will then go on display in the Like a Tea Tray. The public will then be able to cast their vote for their favourite piece.
The show will run from the 6th till the 11th of December and all votes will be counted and the winning artist will receive a special prize (a big cake i hear).
Throughout the week raffle tickets will be on sale for all the pieces will be up for grabs, which is quite exciting. The first 20 raffle tickets sold will also receive a limited addition hand pulled silk screen print of the event poster.
I went in and bought tickets yesterday and picked up an event poster. I really hope we win, i have my eye on a great fine liner drawing of a bear in a bowler hat!
