Poketo and Islands Fold presents: Islands in LA, February 27th

Po-Ke-to, say it a couple times.

From a small Canadian island to the sprawling city of Los Angeles, Islands Fold artist residency will join hands with Poketo to set up a whimsical pop-up art show titled, “Islands in LA“. 

This isn’t your average art show where the finished work is all you see. This is an art show in constant motion. Poketo invites you to come and watch artists work together in real time as they transfer art from their mind’s eye to the eyes of the public.

Beginning at 3 PM, all are invited to grab a drink, hang out with the artists, and witness new pieces being created from start to finish to be showcased later that evening. At 6 PM the official party will begin with a release of a special edition Poketo tee shirt featuring a collaborative design by the artists. The spontaneous nature of the show will allow the public to purchase all original art right off the walls to be taken home that evening. 

Art will continually be in motion, as the event will also hold an on-site assembly of handmade zines, each made one of a kind by participating artists. All artists will be in attendance along with Islands Fold founders to answer any questions about their artist residency.

Urth Caffe is generously providing pastries, tea, and coffee, so drop by for good food, good art, and good times.

Featuring Luke Ramsey from Islands Fold Artist Residency along with Los Angeles artists, Travis Millard, Marco Zamora, Derek Albeck, Joel Speasmaker, and James Gulliver Hancock
