Speakeasy Arts Cooperative Update

There's a lot happening at Speakeasy Arts Cooperative right now! We'd love for you to come down and get involved. Here's what we've got cookin' right now:


We still have room for more fire, ram, mars and Aries themed artwork for the ARIES PARTY at Speakeasy Arts Cooperative on April 3rd. This is a private event but if you would like to be invited please see contact information below. We will be decorating on the theme "primal fire" with the help and design of Lisa Fruichante and Johanna Gardner and the music will be tribal house music by DJs from The Vinyl Tribe along with a few live percussionists. There will be fire dancing by Deanna Riley and a hookah lounge by Julie Rex. Find out more here:!/event.php?eid=308966132230&ref=ts



We are also arranging the April ART BUS Art Walk tour. The cost per gallery is $30. The cost per rider is $10. Art Chantry and Lance Kagey are creating the poster. Weekly Volcano and City Arts are sponsoring. We are working on ART BUS pins for riders to buy instead of tickets. Each pin will be a collectors item. We are working on rack cards to display at all the galleries. We are working on ads for print. If you'd like to participate please see contact information at the bottom of this email.
