Art Parties Are the New House Parties

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. Art parties have all the same amenities as house parties, PLUS ART (and more bathrooms). So you can hang and mingle anywhere, meet people you’re connected to through a shared passion, and always have something fresh and interesting staring you in the face to talk about. Move aside, chicken wings, Art is Buffalo’s greatest asset.

Buffalo Arts Studio, which throws the epic Trimania party every three years inside the TriMain building, is miniaturizing on this off year to welcome you into their space and 40 artist studios. From 7P – 11P, move through *only* 100,000 square feet of live music, live mural painting, live art-making demos, and most importantly, have some drinks and buy one, or many, of the 600 original 5″ X 5″ artworks from 191 Western New York artists for only $25. Only $25! All going down in suite 500. Get it? Live on Five?

$20 tickets for Live on Five, that directly support Buffalo Arts Studio’s cultivation of the arts in our community, can be purchased for $20 prior to the event through Buffalo Arts Studio‚Äôs website. The artworks are sold for cash, credit, check – anything but “exposure…”
