AMPERSAND Live painting series

Call to artists (& shoppers!):
October: 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th.
Planet Claire
51 Powell St. Gastown.

Commemorating the flag ship store launch and shop alliance between Planet Claire and Die Constant; Planet Claire/Redivivus (http://nealnolan.blogspot.com/2010/06/redivivus.html ) creative director and curator, Neal Nolan and Alexis Moreau (main designer and founder of Die Constant) will be hosting a live painting exposé. Every Friday night (6pm – 10pm) throughout the month of October at Planet Claire (51 Powell St. in Gastown) we will be challenging our big city’s approach to limited early shopping hours and featuring an open call collaborative production with Vancouver artists.


With average work schedules shoppers in Vancouver are confined to weekend shopping as opposed to other cities like San Fransisco, LA, New York, Chicago and Nashville; with Vancouver contending as a progressive city Planet Claire, Die Constant and artist/ curator Neal E. Nolan are bringing new life to Gastown evenings with a series of events featured monthly through out the fall/ winter season.


At the end of each evening the collaborative product will be printed on a limited run of  shirts made available the following week both online at www.planetclaire.ca and http://dieconstant.com/ as well as in store at Planet Claire. November will feature an opening reception and auction of the completed works with performances from bands (Nov 18) at Shudder Gallery (433 Colunbia St).


Please join us, come out and crush a cup of wine, whirl like a dervish and exorcise your demons with some of Vancouver’s brightest and talented emerging and established artists every Friday night throughout the month of October at Planet Claire.


Huzzah!
Neal E. Nolan,
Planet Claire, and Die Constant.
