The Prophet Bar is Displaying Our Work!

Many thanks need to go out to Joel Furth, the owner of the Prophet Bar/The Door in Deep Ellum, for inviting us to participate in their annual "Local Heart" event. This event is a one night bash that encourages creative minds to come together, display their art, meet fellow artists, and enjoy live music. It was last minute, but I picked out a few pieces to represent Rising and got the approval from the selected artists to display their work up at the Prophet Bar for the night.

So, last Thursday I got them all hung and schmoozed with the local art and music scene as we enjoyed live music, a video installation and stimulating conversation on where Dallas art is headed. I received a great number of questions (and compliments!) on the displayed work and it made me feel good that I had worked so diligently on getting Rising in.

At the end of the night, I spoke to Joy Hom, the Assistant Manager at Prophet Bar and she and Joel agreed to let the work hang for an entire month! This will get us some added exposure at a very active venue! I got the paperwork all typed up and signed that very next day!

We are so excited about the prospective clients the work will bring us. Here's two pics from the event. Sorry, the quality isn't ideal...but you get the gist. You should definitely head out to the Prophet Bar ( http://www.theprophetbar.com/) and see them for yourself! You're certainly in for a good time =)

I'll blog again soon!


Setting up!
