"Raw and Fearsome"

Opening Saturday May 1st

Erin Bassett of the Plastics Aztecs will be in the gallery with awesome new work concerning fear and our reactions to it. "Raw and Fearsome" implies big, loud, deadly, uncooked, rough and powerful...hence our excitement about the show.

Quick info about Erin; she is an Atlanta native who, along with her art collective, founded SuperFuturism. She hopes to develop super-time consciousness powers and to proliferate the de-conception of time through exercises in simultaneous time-thought perspectives.

We have the event on Facebook for you so click away and RSVP.

Ready, Steady, Go!

First off, MINT wants to thank Eric Weber for the superb job of master curator of the recent show "We Are Going to Eat You, Too". The gallery looks great...and if you didn't get a chance to see it, the show will be up for another week. Here's the set on flickr, and if you've taken some photos let us know. We love to see you guys excited about the art.

This is what we've got planned for you guys this weekend. It's going to be fun!

Friday: We have another wonderful music show brought to you by Walk to Run Records. Travis and Tracey of WTR have been doing an amazing job and I'm really excited about the bands playing this time around.

Doors open at 8:30 and the music starts at 9pm. Cover charge is only $4 and we will have the donation bar stocked and ready.

Saturday: We are throwing a fundraiser party for the local indie film, Thrall. There will be a cover charge of $5, and all proceeds go to the production of the film. Wait, there's more...there will be raffles, giveaways, great music, and Jello shots! If that doesn't sound like a good time, I don't know what does! So come out and hang with the MINT gang as well as the cast & crew of Thrall.

Have a lovely week and we hope to see you this weekend!
