BLACK VELVET thursday Eve

BLINK Gallery presents

Star Trek Captain Kirk on Velvet Painting William Shatner

(Black velvet Captain Kirk artwork is sadly unavailable)


Just across the road from the National Gallery, Blink hosts an alternative to the Caravaggio blockbuster. Inspired by the Italian master, Blink members have mixed some emotional chiaroscuro into their paintings, drawings, sculptures and mixed-media works.

Season opening featuring BLINK artists Barbara Cuerden, Tami Galili Ellis, Meaghan Haughian, Jean Jewer, Karina Kraenzle, Cynthia O’Brien, Bozica Radjenovic & Erin Robertson


Thursday, June 16, 6-9 pm


Friday, June 17, 1-6

Saturday, June 18, 12–5

Sunday, June 19, 12-5

For one weekend only, experience Blink’s unique mélange of dramatic lighting and furious creativity. BLACK VELVET highlights emotional portraits and sensual abstractions that express some of the intensities on the human side. And don’t miss the glowing red wall of smalls!


This Thursday evening, dress up for an intimate evening of BLACK VELVET drama. Mingle in the shadows, munch on olives and grapes, and toast BLINK’s exciting 2011 exhibition season, with a propensity to buy into it all (bring your checkbook or VISA card for the fundraising part).


Black velvet attire optional though highly recommended.
