This month the bcd collaborative, along with the Green Eye Lounge, welcome to the panel:

Atomic Sketch Event is a monthly event that brings together established and emerging artists of various disciplines. The artists create a variety of original new works each night and sell them for extremely affordable prices. In many cases, artists whose studio work sells for hundreds or even thousands of dollars will often sell pieces for less than $50.

Drop-in artists are welcome to bring materials and hang work as well. And artists remember, the bcd collaborative never takes a commission from sales- you keep everything that you make!

Atomic Sketch Event 6yr Anniversary!

In the spring of 2008, on a trip to the west coast- the Atomic Sketch Event was born.

We had been at an event called "Sketch Tuesdays" at 111 Minna in San Francisco (which they still do and you should check out if you're there). It was an event open to anyone and it combined art, music, drinking and socializing. We had never seen anything quite like it. The concept is simple. A panel of artists will paint, draw, sketch, etc- and then put their work up for sale. In addition to the panel artists, other artists can just drop in, find a place to sit and work- and then make and sell their work too. That's really about it. Sure, there have always been "drink and draw" events- but those are usually just for artists. This event was different. This event was for anyone. This was a way for artists to get their work out to new people, a chance to network with other artists, and to make some money. This was a way for the masses to start collecting art without breaking the bank. This was a way for people to see how some art is made. This was just what we needed back in Chicago.

The last 6 years seem to have flown by, it seems like we just started doing this last month.

Thank you to all the artists who have come out.

Thank you to all the people who come out every month.

Thank you to the Green Eye for having us.

We could not do any of this without all of you.

For Year 6, we welcome to the panel:
