Frippery, Bibelot,
and a little sugar for the homeless

December 2nd - 18th, 2010
Opening reception First Thursday December 2nd from 6 - 9pm. 
Fridays & Saturdays, 12 to 5pm, and by appointment

Rock|DeMent visual art space presents "misfixed" toys and a tree installed upside down that "rains sugar on the neighborhood" from December 2nd through December 18th.  This artist-run gallery has a strong desire to give back to their community and use art for positive change.  This holiday season they request audience participation with an art installation that helps them do just that.  For three weeks in December an upside down tree will be installed from the ceiling of this corner space in the Tashiro Kaplan Art Building that looks out over 3rd and Washington.  Beginning at 6pm on Thursday, December 2nd through Saturday, December 18th, the gallery will be accepting donations of bags of sugar to place under the tree.  The goal is to help their neighbor, the Union Gospel Mission, with their undertaking to provide to the homeless.  In a year's time, the mission uses over 10,000 pounds of sugar so no bag is too big or too small.  While the preferred donation is sugar, other new boxed and canned food products will be accepted.  For all sugar donations, Rock|DeMent will provide 10% off of the purchase of any artwork in the gallery or on participating artists' websites.   

In addition to an upside down tree installation, several artists use recycled materials to create "misfixed" toys while others provide a clever wit to their artwork setting a playful tone with art objects of curiosity and rarity.  Participate in a new, refreshing dialog this holiday with the artists at Rock|DeMent.  Open Fridays and Saturdays, 12-5pm until December 18th with an opening reception on December 2nd in the Tashiro Kaplan Arts Building in Pioneer Square
