Art in the Alley Photos
Last night was Trinidad's first Art in the Alley event. The organizers plan to do it again in the spring. The event drew a good sized and jovial crowd that enjoyed the art, music, and refreshments. A local dj added to the festival atmosphere. There was even a neighborhood based licensed massage therapist giving free massages. We hope to have more artists (amateur and professional) exhibit their work next time around. More photos after the jump.
Looks like a respectable turn-out for a first time event. The weather was cooperative, too.
The photos don't actually show the full crowd. There were about 30 people there consistently, and maybe 50-60 total that moved through. It was a little chilly, but very clear and (thankfully) not windy. I would definitely call it a success.
Great event - well organized and a fabulous time. Looking forward to the next one1
I would have liked to gone to this. I wish I would have known about it.
This was such a great idea, and turned out really well! Looking forward to the next one!
Thanks to all who helped make this happen. And a special thanks to the artists: Elis Franzen, Elise Bernard, Robert Mann-Thompson, Kim Seidl and Jo-Jo Fekwa. You are all amazing!
Art in the Alley will return in the spring, once the weather warms up again. Local artists are encouraged to participate -- we'd love to include some performance art as well. The call for artists will be posted to Frozen Tropics again, or contact istandakimbo@gmail to get on the mailing list.
hey, did Dave ever finish the rehab of that carriage house to a studio suite?
My husband is such a Talented Artist,I'm so very proud of him. Our 7 year old daughter is following in her dad's footsteps, she just may be at the next one.
