WPA: Bon Voyage

Bon Voyage WPA Holiday Exhibit from Andrew Pearson on Vimeo.

WPA's one year plan went to two and tomorrow they are having a grand closing/holiday celebration as they close down their space on ChinaTown's Bernard Street and subsequently contemplate their next move. It is a short exhibition that will only last two days, so be sure to catch it while it's up. The show is nearly installed and it already looks great with several stand out pieces such as Fil R?ting, Charles Irvin, Andrew Hahn, Ryan Tomcho, Pam Jorden and Bart Exposito. Here's the blurb on their website:
Bon Voyage | Holiday Group Exhibition
December 10th-11th
Gallery Hours: 12?6pm, Sat-Sun.
Reception: Saturday, December 10, 6-10pm

Please join us for Bon Voyage, a special two-day exhibition and holiday party featuring work by all the members of WPA: Bart Exposito, Andrew Hahn, David Hughes, Charles Irvin, Pamela Jorden, Michael Minelli, Rachael Neubauer, John Pearson, Terri Phillips, Fil R?ting, Amy Sarkisian, Henry Taylor, Ryan Tomcho, Tyler Vlahovich.

WPA is takin' it on the road. Which "road" or which "it" we can't say right now; only that we will be moving from our Bernard Street space as of December 12, 2011. What started out as a one year proposal for a dozen or so artists turned into a two year commitment to a space that occupies not only the inherent traditions of the white cube but the challenges and possibilities offered through collective risk.

Holiday cheer and end of year celebrations await. DJ sets by the yams throughout the evening beneath the mistletoe and tinsel. Special hourly calendar raffle and discounts Saturday evening. We hope you can attend.

Marking this transition WPA has produced a 13-month calendar for the new year, a collaborative project featuring artwork by each of the members.
Limited edition of 100, including a unique rubberstamp collage by Dave Hughes, only available at the gallery - $20.

Gallery hours:
Open 12-6pm, Saturday-Sunday or by appointment.
