The Beer Coaster Show at Public Beer and Wine Shop in Long Beach

/
2 Comments

The concept of the coaster show first came to my radar with La Luz de Jesus and the popularity just took off. The concept is easy; Grab one of those free beer coasters that you get from local bars and create art on it. It's a good challenge for the artists and it is a great way to publicize the beer and upcycle something that is normally tossed at the end.

I have participated in a few coaster shows thanks to Thumbprint Gallery in San Diego. It's super fun and more inclusive than most art shows, allowing more artists to participate.

The concept of small works in accessible everyday items used as canvas is not new. Giant Robot has their annual popular Post-It Shows at Giant Robot in West LA. The art show is "egalitarian" meaning that pieces are priced at a set amount and the folks participating are from emerging to established. It is a great way for a person to collect original work from their favorite artists but not breaking the bank.

I decided to host one of our own egalitarian art shows at Public Beer and Wine shop in Long Beach for their August Show. The Beer Coaster Art Show (I know. It's not the most creative of names but it tells you what it is.) will start this Friday, August 12th, 2016 from 7pm-midnight. All of the work is no higher than $40 which makes it affordable for aspiring art collectors. This is also a way for artists to exercise their creativity in a low stress manner and with the free canvases, they may showcases as many as they want.

Stay tuned to this page as I update the pieces and their prices. I can take Paypal and Venmo. Shipping and handling is at the buyer's expense.

  2. I've been to events at other places, but this was my first time in here. Great place. Food at venues was good and seating was very comfortable. Also, very good view from where I sat. This is such a cool venue and the atmosphere was equally amazing.
