Buy some art tonight at the Cherry Tavern
The VolaVida Collective is hosting a one-night only art show tonight at EVG favorite Cherry Tavern.
They'll be work on display and for sale from HEKTAD, SFA UNO and Chris Prandy. (Any art that doesn't sell will be available at the VolaVida website.)
This is the first show for VolaVida, formed by East Village resident Kate Ruby Klenfner and her partner Maurice Infinite.
"We're going to have monthly shows. Mostly at Cherry Tavern, but the one in January will be at a big photo studio in Chinatown," Klenfner tells us.
And why the Cherry Tavern as a venue?
"We want to do shows in 'real' NYC spots. The gallery model is dead," she says. "We both love Cherry Tavern, and, if we can help them make money, that would be great."
A to-be-determined percentage of the proceeds tonight will go to the National Fibromyalgia Association.
Oh, and Cherry Tavern is at 441 E. Sixth St. between Avenue A and First Avenue. The show starts at 7 p.m.
