After Narrative: creative fundraiser this Thursday night at Artspace

50 Orange St, New Haven, (203) 772-2709
After Narrative: An Affordable Art Event
Sept. 10, 2009, 6—8 p.m.

Press release


Join us for a one-night exhibition and fundraiser that focuses on the importance of our Flatfile collection, dedicated local artists and their individual practices, and bringing reasonably priced art to the Greater New Haven community. The Flatfile is reaching a new stage of development, and Artspace is launching a timely but costly website in 2010. Artspace is also dedicating a gallery to the Flatfile collection this year. These changes are vital to artists, providing them with more exposure to a growing audience. Your ticket purchase will help fund the new website, the Flatfile program, and the invaluable artists that contribute their time and artwork to Artspace.

After Narrative is designed to sell the artwork of Artspace's Flatfile artists--both from our existing Flatfile and new, commissioned work for this event--at irresistible prices. Several Flatfile artists have donated 5x10" series priced under fifty dollars including unique prints, drawings, paintings, and/or photographs to be packaged in an Artspace-provided sleeve.

Using both linear and non-linear structures, many of our artists use narrative to address contemporary issues and concerns. The theme of the fundraiser attempts to explore how narratives can change as new viewers and authors participate and exchange work within a master narrative.

Your ticket purchase will help fund Artspace's new website, the Flatfile program, and the invaluable artists that contribute their time and artwork to Artspace. Please support Artspace in 2010 by purchasing one of our four ticket options to the After Narrative fundraiser and exhibition, interacting with hundreds of affordable artworks and multiples, and supporting local artists and their practices.

Enjoy live acoustics by painter Chris Mir (visual art home page and music home page) and songs by Dear Traveler, complimentary sushi by Miya's and free artwork with a $50+ ticket.
