We can hardly believe it ourselves, but this October 31st 2015 we will mark five whole years of macabre mark making! Yes, Art Macabre Death Drawing salons are proud to celebrate that we’ve been running our events for 5 years now.
To celebrate this occasion, we’ll be:
- Throwing a Halloween birthday celebration – a joyfully macabre shindig on Halloween even itself! So keep Saturday 31 October free for dressing up, dancing, DJs and drinking fun with some of our bestest Art Macabre family, friends & fiends. KEEP THE DATE FREE! Details and venue TBA very soon…
- Creating a zine – called ‘ART MACABRE: DIY or DIE’ to acknowledge in the true DIY spirit that we started with our roots in Ladyfest Ten. It will be for sale for a bargainous price. Featuring black and white artwork and prints by School of Skull participants and some of our favourite Art Macabre artists. Including some pages designed for colouring in!
- Holding the Summer School of Skulls exhibition – our third exhibition, following on from the success of our previous exhibition earlier this year ‘The Dying Art’, we’ll be exhibiting the artwork and sketches created and inspired by the 13 participants in our Summer School of Skulls programme. Work produced on the theme of Death and Skulls – there’ll be prints, drawings, textiles and more – created and inspired by trips to Wellcome Collection, Barts Pathology Museum, Viktor Wynd’s Museum of Curiousites and Grant Zoology museum amongst other places.
- Looking back at 5 years of Art Macabre with photo archives and favourite events memories shared online, plus exciting announcements released for 2016!
WATCH THIS SPACE FOR DETAILS ON ALL OF THESE VERY SOON!
