Fourth Annual TableTop ArtShow
The TableTop ArtShow is a one-of-a-kind art show that runs yearly in March. The show was conjured up during a brainstorming session involving Melissa Flint and Brian Kemp. The duo was talking it up about how to bring art to the people during the height of COVID, when no shows were taking place. With galleries being closed due to the pandemic, the duo came up with the idea of placing the show right in front of an audience. Restaurants had re-opened with guidelines prohibitive to a traditional gallery show of any kind. "Put it on placemats," Melissa says. And, Boom! The TableTop ArtShow was conceived.
The show now consists of area artists' submissions of up to 3 pieces of art. All artwork submitted is featured in the virtual portion of the show which can be viewed online. Fifteen of the submitted pieces are selected by the TableTop ArtShow crew to be featured in a gallery show located on the walls of Eli Fish Brewing in Downtown Batavia. Prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners from the TableTop ArtShow pieces. There will be a prize for the Peoples Choice Award: online voting will take place from March 1st - March 31st. Join for the opening reception and awards ceremony on February 27 at 7 pm at Eli Fish Brewing Company!
This March, we invite you to take part in this unique event. Visit participating restaurants, and check out the show. If you're an artist or know one, please submit to the show and/or spread the word about this opportunity. Lastly, if you would like to sponsor the event, we would love your support as events like this do not happen without the support of our community. Thank you and enjoy the Show!
