Places For Peanuts - don't go

Opening Reception on Thursday July 28th at 7pm Working towards their BFAs (Better Funner Art) Places for Peanuts is a collective of enthusiastic, part time, full time, pretend or wannabe artists who have been meeting every tuesday night for over a year now. As a completely non exclusive club with members often coming and going. The Peanuts decided long ago to not include any individuals names on any of there art shows or zine releases. Each night the Peanuts gather they play a series of drawing games which stimulate both their imaginations and their subconscious. Of these drawing games there is one in particular which reigns most popular and has become the signature of the group. The game is known as "Telephone" which is played by having each artist write a word or phrase on the first page of a booklet. The booklet is then passed to a neighbouring artist who interprets the word or phrase with a drawing. This drawing is then passed and a word or phrase is written about it. this cycle continues until a booklet is filled or gone full circle. Each booklet is then presented to the group. For this show at Tumble Contemporary Art, The Peanuts will be displaying examples from their most popular game "Telephone". In conjunction with the telephone books the Peanuts will also be releasing/displaying their latest collectively curated zine as well as hanging multiple pieces created through other drawing game methods.
