The Coaster Show, Our Annual L.A. Beer Week Tie-In Show
& Harold Fox “On the Fringe of the Mundane”
September 5 – 28, 2014
Opening Reception: Friday, Sept. 5th, 8-11 PM
The Coaster Show 2014
"We’ve all done it. We’ve sat at the bar, drinking a beer and doodled on a coaster.
But most of us aren’t the extremely skilled painters, illustrators, animators, tattooists, sculptors or collage artists that are featured in this exhibition that takes a love of craft brewing and elevates it to high art.
The folks behind L.A. Beer Week produced a custom canvas for some of our favorite gallery folks to do what they do best, and transform a 4″ tondo coaster into museum worthy exhibition pieces.
Last year, we dotted our walls with over 700 tiny masterpieces, and this year we’re looking to outdo ourelves. The rules are simple: Each coaster must be a solitary work (though it’s fine if several pieces work together contextually), and they must be priced $250 or less. There is no bottom, so some coasters might even be free!
This isn’t just the same, old crop of folks you see in every group show across town. There are a lot of participants who we quite frankly can’t believe we got to participate. Maybe it’s because we kept the rules simple: We told them to do whatever they wanted. Whether you love beer or don’t, the art will blow your mind.
And just like last year, there will be some amazing beer here, too!"
