So you want to attend a gallery event, but you are not sure what to do. You may ask yourself questions like, “How do I sign up?” or “I know nothing about art, will I be allowed in?” or, perhaps the most daunting of questions, “What do I wear?” Well patron, fear not. Here at Baterbys, we have put together a guide to assist you in expanding your artistic horizons.
However, before we get started, we should address what is arguably, the most frequently asked question. “Why should I come to a gallery event?” The answer to that question is not as easy as it may seem, but it can be boiled down to a few crucial points. The most significant response is simply that art is important. Art is the bread and water for the soul; it can define cultures, inspire movements, and arouse emotional response. Art is the visual representation of the inner most workings of the human mind, a reflection of ideas made physical through mediums as simple as canvas and paint. To appreciate art is to appreciate the accomplishments of our fellow man.
But enough chatter. Let’s talk about why you should attend a gallery event, and what you can gain from it. Firstly, signing up for the event is easier than attempting to interpret a Pollock painting; just visit our website (https://baterbys.com/events/Max), fill out the information and click “Attend Event.” Second, the cost (for those who RSVP) is $5, a mere fraction of the price it would take to go to the movies, or if you decide at the last minute you would like to join, for only $10 at the door you will be included in all the fun… and did we mention that all ticket proceeds go as donations to St. Jude Children Research Hospital!
During the event their will be buffet of catered food from a neighbor Cuba Libre, which is personally a favorite of mine! Each time we have an event, we switch up the menu to offer new variety of their menu. After you had some nice finger food, wash it all down with some of their hand made cocktails, this is all included in your ticket price!
Strolling around the gallery with a cocktail in hand is the best way to enjoy yourself at a gallery event. Walking from piece to piece it is a fun conversation starter for any group. Whether it is Ladies night out with your best girl friends or on a blind date, art is the best way to get a conversation going. A few key questions to start off your art interpretation
