The Surreal. Pop-Up Gallery and Bar.
On the first Thursday of every month Surreal Vintage will be hosting a Pop-Up Gallery at Tapsters Promise in Colne starting on the 6th of April 2017, opening at 2pm and on till 11pm.
We wanted to initiate The Surreal. Pop-Up Gallery and Bar to create a space to entertain you with unusual surreal artworks by 8 artists from Surreal Vintage. Some of the artworks will be for sale, but our primary interest is that of entertainment, to create an unusual space for anyone to come to on a quiet Thursday afternoon/evening and relax in a visually unique space. The inspiration came while imagining what it would have been like 100 years ago when the Surrealists sat around in smokey Paris bars plotting and planning their work, discussing ideas and, on the odd occasion, having some form of Cabaret entertainment. We want to replicate that environment, and we realised a micropub would be the best place to do achieve it.
The first event at Tapsters Promise will include Artwork by:
Ma D Jack
Also, there will be 3 Art Vending machines, vending unique signed artworks at £2.00 and £3.00
During the day, from 2pm – 5pm, you can see an audio visual installation by Anne Enigma with quadraphonic sounds and 2 video screens. It will be subtle and very relaxing.
We 333 Video Installation by Mad Jack will be shown during the day and in the evening.
The first evening will be a relaxed affair, with artworks filling the walls, hand selected micro brewery beers, excellent music and, most probably, a few of the Surreal Vintage artists wearing ridiculous, yet fantastic, clothes.
So, why not take a night off from the television and come and join us for a chilled evening in Colne.It’s going to be great.
We will be serving Tea and Coffee during the day till 5pm, and other soft drinks available. Children are welcome till 7pm if accompanied by an adult.
The Surreal will be held on the first Thursday of every month. Put it in your diary!
