DRAW AND DRINK EVENING

Holllaaaaaa.....

How we all doing? 

Its another Monday, you survived the weekend/last 6 weeks, you're either currently pretending to work, watching that clock and no doubt wishing the week away already so you can do it all over again, or sucking up the blissfull silence, putting your house back together and crying into your bank account after the long long 6 week summer holidays.. yes, yes I am right?! ..obviously I am ...

So, Last Friday saw the first Draw and Drink evening at the Gallery, and it went rather well even if i do say so myself! ..

I invited the wonderful Warren Fox over for the evening (click on his name & the hyper link will take you to his website) Warren is an Australian born artist, now living in Brighton, his talents are photo realistic illustrations, based on a love of the black and white photographic genre with a  particular love for images by the late iconic Jazz photographer, Herman Leonard, but more recently exploring the alternative urban art scene, with deconstructed prints of the human anatomy, which have been snapped up by Art Republic and now myself for the gallery..yeah me!  

Thanks Andrew Roach for the photography all evening!

Obviously no event at my gallery would be complete without a copious load of booze chucked in, so in the vain attempt to be all middle class and Art like I decided to chuck a whole load of cocktails and local brews down peoples throats, get them drunk and make them buy art.. so far my cunning plan has always worked! 

We had the beautiful Talia & Danni  mixing up the Cocktails till the early hours and ohhhh boy can Talia make a cracking Cocktail, Head Mixolologist at Riki Tiks Beach Bar, I can honestly say I've never had such good tasting cocktails and trust me I've slid my way round most of the shady back street cocktail & gin bars in town, I can recommend the Espresso Martins & Green Ghosts, they went down way to easy and that heady mixture of Brightons best Small Batch super strength coffee, Kaluha and over proof Vodka and many many Double Brighton Gins  ..go hunt her down and ask to see her make a Bahama Mama!  We where show casing Brighton Gin, Seacider & Bison Beer, all local brewers and if you've not sampled their finest wares yet then next time you're out and about ask for them by name, as long as you're not in some west street bar being a Stella tosser then i'm pretty sure the bartender will dig you some out hos finest ruin and you'll gain many many cool Brightonian hipster points... 

I'll leave you with some lovely pictures of the night, keep your eyes peeled for the next Draw & Drink towards the end of the month, if any aspiring artists want to show case their work for the night then get in touch, It  really is a fabulous evening.. Ohhh just one last special nod to the Finance Manager of American Express, who racked up a £182 bar tab purely on cocktails and still managed to walk out unaided, salute sir, you are welcome back any time !! ..Legend..

(Note* Saturday October 31st will be CHAPTER XIII's first  HALLOWEEN, helllll noooo... you won't  wanna be missing that banger!! )
