ARTSGIVING 2012  /  6pm  /  Thursday, December 6th, 2012  /  Rendezvous

OUR SECOND ANNUAL FREE HOLIDAY PARTY celebrating jolly interactivity and exciting original art sponsored by the Copious Love crew, Artsgiving is a very informal open-mic style celebration of art forms in all of their various glories… An invite to our extended artistic community to come express yourself in the presence of a loving family of artists. We want YOU! We want to know about that original song, poem, self-expression, story, art, or even feeling you may be willing to share. Bring it to Artsgiving. This event is about getting through the holidays together.. Sharing, participating, and loving each other… copiously.

We are going to take over the Jewelbox Theater at Belltown’s Rendezvous for all of the live stage performances, hosted by none other than John Paul Sharp. We will provide 3 mics, a keyboard, plug-in for guitar, and a hand drum. And by popular demand, we are curating the all-new Artsgiving Gallery of Visual Art upstairs in the Copious (Velvet) Lounge. Now all of you painters, photographers, sculptors, and inventors have a gallery just for you! The Copious Lounge will be an excellent atmosphere to mingle amongst all of the art submitted to the event.

Are you a performer around the Seattle area and want to try something out on stage for the first time? Copious Love Productions is calling out to all artists out there to join us for this completely free-to-the-public holiday party. You can contact us if you want to make sure to reserve a time to perform on stage, or you can just show up to the event and fill out your name for open mic!  All types of acts are welcome and we’re especially looking for acts to create a cathartic experience. Contact and let us know what you’re interested in performing! – John Paul Sharp, Host

Copious Love would like to invite all of you visual artists (non-performamce artists) to bring in your artwork to be put on display for an absolutely free communal art exhibit at Artsgiving. Come share your art with the artistic community to inspire other artists and be inspired alike! All mediums will be welcomed with excited, open arms. Be it a painting, drawing, graffiti art, photograph, sculpture (of easily moveable size), light exhibit (also of easily moveable size), blown glass, clay and other varied figurines, original inventions…. and the artistic list could go on and on! All of the pieces will be set up to be viewed in the upstairs Copious Lounge a.k.a. the Velvet Lounge at the Rendezvous. Save the date and get your art pieces ready for an evening jam packed with artist collaboration! Come get your art on! – Missy King, Visual Art Curator
