The dTown artists are local and their artisanal items range from specialty foods to vintage clothing and accessories, furniture, pottery and almost anything else you can think of.
Across the way from LabourLove, get a sneek peek at the cows for the “Cow’s On Parade” ceremony happening Saturday, August 18th. More information about this event is provided below.Just outside of LabourLove Gallery, Triangle Pets Alive is bringing out a few of their adoptable pets, and Independent Animal Rescue will be setting up in the North Lobby of Building 3. Both are fantastic organizations that place homeless pets in loving permanent homes. If you are, or know of someone who is, looking for a new family member, please consider adopting from one of these groups.Blend is the place for a great sandwich or frozen yogurt! They have added new yogurt flavors to the menu, a new self-serve yogurt station, and of course an ever changing deli case of delicious pastries to pair with your favorite CounterCulture coffee.
The Scrap Exchange
This show features sculptures by Julia Gartrell that explore common consumer items and unexpected mechanical processes. “Modified Multiples” is a series of sculptures using numerous repeating objects combined together into new forms. The repetition of items transforms normal objects into unusual creations and explores our need to collect, consume and discard. “Mundane Machines” is a group of home-made machines that perform useless or redundant tasks. These highly constructed devices subvert the idea that machine-made items are more efficient and/or modern, and explores notions of labor and specialization. The series of sculptures and machines work together to look at how we approach mass-produced items in a fast-paced and wasteful culture.
Full Steam will be on tap while supplies last!
All Third Friday Events are Free and Open to the Public from 6pm-9pm.
