We’re excited the reveal the second Mini Edition in a series of four that will be launching at the Capture Photography Festival Fundraiser Party. This distinctive still life is by Vancouver-based artist Birthe Piontek, whose work will also be featured in a solo exhibition at Gallery 295 during Capture 2.0.
The Fundraiser Party will be hosted in the industrial warehouse that houses the MINI Canada Yaletown dealership, on Thursday, February 5, 2015, from 7:30–10 pm. Along with the opportunity to view and purchase each of the works in Capture’s ‘Mini’ Artist Editions series, guests can catch a session with local 3D-printing company Tinkerine. The Tinkerine team will be onsite capturing scans and printing complimentary miniature 3D busts of each attendee. In addition to cocktails and canapés, guests will graze on food and wine from Gotham Steakhouse and premium wines, and have the opportunity to speak with Capture’s participating artists and galleries.
Funds raised go towards Capture’s programming and installations, including major works at the Dal Grauer Substation, The Canada Line, Lonsdale Quay, and other public spaces.
When: February 5th, 7:30pm – 10:00pm
Where: MINI Yaletown, 1039 Hamilton Street Vancouver, B.C., V6B 5T4
