ClearWithGuts Garage Sale (12.1)



Clearwithguts presents Garage Sale. Garage (pronounced how I say it: "garr- ridge") Sale is hosted by MutonIsMyFriend and is a word of mouth pop-up gallery/art-show/party held in a garage. The idea is for people to come along, check out some affordable art, hang out and have fun!

Who is involved? So far confirmed are: Velocitron, Josh Herbolsheimer, Mitchell Edmonds, Brian Flynn, Splurrt, Monster Worship, Adam Middleton/RabbitsAndRobots, Toby Dutkiewicz/Devils Head Productions, Scott Wilkowski, JulieB/Pretty In Plastic, Dennis Hamaan/Shirihama, David Coffman, Megan Kelly, Uh-Oh Toys, Ralph Consentino and last, but certainly not least, Datadub/Fig-Lab. That doesn't even include at least one, and possibly more, extra special surprise guests!

What makes Garage Sale different? Artistic contributors decide their own prices and keep 100% of the proceeds. The idea is to show an eclectic quality mix of toys and art. It's a fun alternative to galleries, not an attempt to take them on or step on their toes. No hype. No egos. No pretensions. The idea is fun.

What is the motivation behind Garage Sale? In monetary terms – nothing - In fact it'll be a money loser for me. However, it will be a chance for me to give something back to a scene I love and that has provided me a lot of joy and camaraderie over the last few years. I’m not an artist, or a toy maker, so this is what I came up with. My time is very precious, but I'd love to give this a shot and see where it goes.

When is it? The inaugural show is on Saturday December 1st starting at 3 PM until 8 PM.

Where is it? 1239 N. Hoover Street, Los Angeles, CA 90029. Near all your Sunset Junction favorites like Akbar, El Cid and Del Taco.

Garage Sale is 100% non-profit and all sales will be cash only. Thanks for listening!
