ArtBeforeAnything® is excited to announce the long-awaited reboot of one of DC’s premier communal arts events, Sketch Lounge! From 2012 to 2015, Sketch Lounge served as a monthly event meant to inspire and unite the creative community by inviting artists to a public platform and venue where they can create work in real-time and sell those pieces directly to the event patrons. Sketch Lounge successfully curated twelve shows within the DC metropolitan area over that time period. Now Sketch Lounge is back, bringing Vol. 13 to Shopkeepers Gallery.
Each event is free to the public and work tables and chairs are all provided. The artists only need to bring their own materials and supplies to create with. Table stations are large enough that non-featured artists can also bring materials and join in the creative experience, although the extra seats are first come first serve! This upcoming event will have a featured cash bar, and music curated by DJ’s throughout the night, and a Japanese comfort food pop-up by the chefs at UZU.
