Spring Street Studios presents A Midsummer Night's Dreambar
The artists of Spring Street Studios invite the public to experience the world of dreams and visions at an open studio event called A Midsummer Night’s Dreambar. Why Dreambar? The first 150 visitors to this free event will receive a free orange-and-vanilla ice cream bar. It is a Throwback Thursday nod to the joy of frozen treats from the ice cream man on a hot, summer evening, but the real treat of the evening for visitors will be meeting a community of working visual and performing artists and purchasing incredible artworks directly from their creators.
Dreams and visions fuel the creative engines of artists, and in a community of artists like Spring Street Studios, dreams and visions are realized every day in the form of canvases, photographs, designs, and performances.
On view on the first floor during the event will be a building-wide exhibition called Dreams and Visions: the Artist’s Perspective, organized by photographer Cheri Randolph and curated by recent University of Houston graduate Chelsea Shannon who received her master’s in art history this spring with an emphasis on contemporary photography.
In celebration of the new seasons at Stark Naked Theatre and Mildred’s Umbrella Theater Company, who share the black box theatre at Studio 101, there will be music, dancing and free Saint Arnold’s beer.
In addition to these delights, visitors will be treated to complimentary light bites from Prego, Torchy’s Tacos, Les Givral’s and Beavers, as well as live music by Leslie Krafka, the Houston Songwriters Association 2010 Songwriter of the Year, who will be performing her original songs.
