Thursday, Dec. 6th – FREE!
at The Rendezvous

Artsgiving 2012 is upon us! Here is the definitive guide to Seattle’s all-involved artistic community event!

What we are most excited about is the fact that Artsgiving is an open-mic invite to our extended artistic community. That means we are ALL in store for a variety of fantastic artistic expressions brought to the venue for Artsgiving. We will host three hours of stage performances in the Jewelbox Theatre in addition to curating the upstairs Copious Lounge where the Artsgiving Gallery will display all visual art submitted to the event. Mingle and mix at this celebration of art, community, and love.

Over 20 scheduled stage performances and a dozen or more art pieces for the gallery.
Our host John Paul Sharp wants you to learn his song for Artsgiving. Give the video a click and learn the chorus for a show-opening holiday sing-along!

We will be taking artistic submissions until the moment before your call to stage. It is best however, to submit your performance or piece to the Copious Love staff so that we can arrange anything on our side and make space for you. Submissions for performing or visual art will be accepted up until the day of our event. And even after that, we welcome you to come to the event and let us know right there if you would like to show your art. Clipboards will be roaming the event to pick up all of you day-of artists.

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.
