Multimedia company Sideways Media is giving up-and-coming artists the chance to show off their talent this Saturday.
Eclectic paintings, pottery, jewelry, and cookies will be on display and for purchase during the company’s “Underground” event. The event will take place Saturday, December 14th in the basement of Kudzu's (603 Monroe). "Underground" will last from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. Admission is $5.
The event will feature several vendors and multicultural artists, such as Pretia Kemp, Summer Kienitz, Gail Shelton, Felicia Wheeler, Kim Brown, PrettyPurpleElephant Creative Works, CornCases, Dolly Herciuk, Pam Jackson, and Makeda's Cookies.
“We believe heavily in supporting local talent,” said Dustin Taylor of Sideways Media. “The event is a multicultural, multi-faceted art show. It’s a collision of art and music.”
DJ Funke will provide tunes for people as they view merchandise and taste sweets in the venue's basement. Later on, indie rock group The Winter Sounds will perform upstairs.
“There’s different types of things for all types of people to enjoy,” Taylor said. “If you want to come there and get some Christmas shopping done, [you can]. If you like to dance, you can come downstairs and then come upstairs to listen to some rock music. There will also be drink and food specials.”
Everyone who attends the event will be entered in a raffle to win one free hour of photography courtesy of Sideways Media. Other prizes will include items donated from participating vendors. There will be multiple drawings throughout the event’s duration.
