CW Turns 10 and everyone’s invited to the Mad Collar Party on August 10th
The Collar Works is an art gallery in Troy that hosts visual arts installations of a non-commercial nature. Initially operating as a transition gallery in Troy, the group set out to utilize unused warehouse space in Troy while also offering local artists an opportunity to show their work.
On August 10th, the Mad Collar Dash is a party to benefit the continued growth of the gallery and its efforts.
During our Mad Collar Party, Collar Works hosts an art yard sale, a special one-night-only exhibit of affordable, small works by talented local artists. It is a fantastic opportunity to snag an amazing work of art for your collection, support local artists and help grow Collar Works’ Artist Fund, which allows us to support the development of new works, opportunities or site-specific projects by emerging and underrepresented artists. Proceeds are split 50/50 with artists.
Also, fun to see (and participate in) is the MAD Collar Competition! Come decked out in your own eccentrically designed, detachable collars and enter the MAD Collar Competition. Prizes are awarded, too, to make it more fun.
Collar Works has never followed the well-trodden path, and the works showcased within their walls embody that same energy. Their roots as a contemporary arts space began in a collar factory in the Collar City, and they enjoy the playful and creative energy shared at this annual event.
It is also the 10th anniversary of the Collar Works opening! So expect some fun birthday celebrations, too.
Tickets are $35. Advance purchase is recommended.
