We are almost half way through August, where has the summer gone? Make sure you take advantage of all of the beautiful weather and the lovely out door activities August has to offer; starting with Art Crawl this week.
As always, we have a list of Art Crawl highlights for your crawlin’ consideration:
Hamilton Magazine presents the second ‘Raise the Roof’ show in honour of Dr.Disc celebrating 21 years in business. I played a game of 21 Questions with owner, Mark, in July.
Please bring non-perishable food items to this event.
The celebrations will continue into the later hours at The Casbah with a cover free after party.
Local artist Jason Lee Rhyno is the featured artist for the month of August at the DF gallery. The show opens this Friday.
Jason Lee Rhyno primarily works with the drawing medium and his work suggests a preoccupation with line and a juxtapose of negative space with the masses of colour.
End your night of Art Crawlin’ at the natural end point for the event – James St. and Murray St.
This party will feature four artists doing live art, and four DJs spinning all night long.
The theme for this party is: Retro Rave, and if you come dressed up in rave gear you only pay $2.50 to get in.
HAVN (Hamilton’s audio visual node) is having a show this Friday. Visuals will be provided by Amy McIntosh, and Kearon Roy Taylor. A movement piece will be performed by Ariel Bader-Shamai, and Reg Moore will provide the sound for the evening.
HAVN is located at James and Barton and is a great space. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should try to make it out to this event.
Hamilton Cocktail Showcase happens at the London Taphouse. Five local bartenders will compete in a cocktail contest. Admission is $25 and includes tickets redeemable for drinks and raffle prizes donated by local businesses. All proceeds go to Food for Kids Hamilton
