Trespasses Dinner

October 18th at 6:00 PM
EASE Gallery, 30 W. Woodruff Avenue

Calling all artists, writers, and performers to participate in a special dinner in preparation for EASE Gallery’s Spring community project, a show and book, which will be entitled “Trespasses": Trespass is a very old idea, and although it’s often seen negatively it can lead to beauty and revolutions in understanding.  Sometimes we need other people to trespass into our private preserves of thought and belief, and into our carefully curated ways of doing things. 
EASE Gallery invites visual artists, writers, musicians, and performers to join us in an examination of trespass, what it means and how it can help or hinder us.  We will undertake this examination through a gallery show and a book.  
We will pair artists together, and invite them to trespass into each other’s work, making sculptures based on writing, creating music based on paintings, writing poems based on photographs, etc.  We hope these collaborations will be free-flowing, challenging, and grace-filled.  
Join us for dinner on October 18th at 6:00 PM, when artists of all varieties can meet each other, explore each other’s work, and form collaborations with one or two others.  The fruit of these collaborations will become the content of the show, to be held in February, and the book that will accompany it.  Please bring work to show, read, or perform.  Coming to the dinner doesn’t commit you to participating in the book and show in February.
