Lucky Gallery invites you to our first fundraiser/art event called Pierogi Party on Saturday, May 12, 2012, from 2 – 6 pm, at 136 Lawrence Street in Brooklyn.
Pierogi Party will feature a feast of fresh pierogi made by Lucky Gallery staff and artists on site, live music, live art, and a silent auction. Guests will get to taste a variety of pierogi, both meat and vegetarian available at different filling stations.
Pierogi Party will raise funds to support Lucky Gallery’s first international exhibition and performances in Berlin this May 2012. Lucky Gallery formed an international art collective called “E.T.”, comprised of seven multidisciplinary artists from New York City, Berlin, London, and Antwerp. “E.T.” will exhibit at the Okazi Gallery and are participants in Month of Performance-Berlin. Three of the NYC-based artists from “E.T.” will be participating in this event, Øh1Øm1ke, Bittertang, and TJ Hospodar.
