As in past years, the event centered around the raffling off of art work donated by local artists. For $50 a ticket, participants were able to enter mini-raffles for the individual art work of their choice. For $5, they could enter the poor man's raffle, which was a standard raffle.
Upstairs, the resident artists of Box13 conducted a silent auction. Houston film maker and media maven, Stephanie Saint Sanchez DJ'd the event.
Here are some of the works that caught my eye with my camera in focus. However, I did not capture the artist or title...but will gladly add them if someone provides them.
|Parent issues? What parent issues?|
|Both the model and his medallion were unable to attend.|
|David Lynch fantasizes of Betty Boop?|
|Tessellations done oh so right|
Participants gnoshed on guacamole, mingled, and cast their lots. Eugenious(sp?) of Gorealah Soul crashed the party with his bear-costumed cohort and serenaded us.
|Fuck greeting cards. Say it with a bullhorn.|
|With a bear as your wing man, you will never lack a cuddle.|
At 9 they raffled.
By 10, Elaine Bradford and her fellow boxers: Emily Link, Dennis Nance, Michael Henderson, Emily Sloan, Dennis Harper, Maria Smits, Heather Bause, Kathy Kelley, and Mark Ponder had
divvied up the spoils and celebrated the space's birthday with a cake made by Heather B.
Whatever their cultural or personal criteria for "fullness", no one should have left the event empty of anything other than a little cash.
