Slideluck is a New York City-based, non-profit arts organization that provides an opportunity for artists and arts-appreciators to gather around food, friends, artwork and music for an unforgettable night.
Slideluck is a forum for exposing artists, curators, reps, and editors to new work, while infusing the arts community with a non-commercial vitality and refreshing exchange.
Slideluck has become a place for community members to come together and share their appreciation for food and art in a casual, inclusive atmosphere. More than anything else, Slideluck is an exhilarating and stimulating occasion that is meant to remind us of why we create in the first place.
The evening begins with a bountiful potluck dinner and then the lights are dimmed, the crowd is hushed, and a spectacular slideshow showcasing the work of local and international artists commences . . .
Photography selections have been made by our jury of curators...Gina Hole (Producer/Agent at THEY Rep & Owner of Sugar Studios), Ian McGuffie (Head of Digital Photography at VANARTS) and Brian Hendricks (Senior Editor at HOBO Magazine) For more info please visit: http://slideluckpotshow.com/submissions
Prizes will be awarded for Best Restaurant Dish (as judged by the public) and Best Dish from the public as chosen by our Foodie Judges - Mark Brand (Boneta, Save On Meats, The Diamond...) and Shira McDermott (Wearenotsofast.org).
For each admission ticket purchased to the event, we will donate a meal token from Save On Meat's to our local community partners, the VPD Homeless Outreach Team and the Vancouver Women's Health Collective. Visit www.saveonmeats.ca/purchase
Partial proceeds will go towards establishing a small arts grant through the Vancouver Foundation for Photographers & Artists focusing on local social issues.
