"JEST in Time: The Phylogenesis of Clowns"
Distinction is pleased to announce our partnership with ArtHatch and our upcoming exhibition "Jest In Time: The Phylogenesis of Clowns" co-curated with Dio Sumagaysay that will run from from August 14 - September 4, 2010. The exhibition will feature 36 artists from around the world creating pieces centered around the theme and size 12 x 12 inches or smaller.
The exhibition will be silent auction style with all pieces starting ...at $100. Bidders will have the opportunity to take their chances and bid on the piece, for $100 or higher, or purchase the piece for the "buy it now" price stated by the artist.
The auction will begin with the preview (August 9) and go through the end of the exhibition, but the "buy it now" prices will end at 9:00pm during the reception on August 14th.
In addition the work of 35 local artists and 50+ national and international artists will be on display in our 7000 sq ft building.
The reception with live music by Oregon based Calico Jack, a baton troupe, fire dancer, beer courtesy of Stone Brewery, wine courtesy of Wien’s Family Cellars, food courtesy of Jalepeno, and lots of art lovers will be held on August 14, from 6-11pm.
