Art Happenings During AthFest (Our Opening Party)

Well, here we go! Six months of renovation and we're ready to show 766 W. Broad to you. Join us as AthFest cools down for good sights, good sounds, tacos and margs. Oh yeah, Flagpole made a note about it and used a rainbow photo from our move-in day in April!

They said: "PIXEL & INK: Over the past two years, Pixel & Ink Studio has bounced from the Chase Park warehouses to the Bottleworks, and now, after several months of renovation, the firm is ready for business at its third and hopefully charmed location. The building at 766 W. Broad St. comes with a storied past, having been previously occupied by DIY music venue Secret Squirrel and the Money Machine store, and will provide a much larger space for the firm to expand its services, which include photo restoration, fine art reproduction and design.

The studio will host a grand opening party Sunday, June 25 from 6:30–10 p.m. featuring live music by Four Eyes, The TaxiCab Verses, Hunger Anthem and Tabloid, plus a full taco bar catered by Sr. Sol. Trio Contemporary Art Gallery, which will be housed on the top floor of the building, will debut with a collection of works by some of the artists of Athens Art Prints, a project of Pixel & Ink that provides high-quality, on-demand prints as well as an impressive directory of local talent. A second pop-up exhibition will show a collection of letters and drawings created as correspondence between Lucy Ralston and Tomo Ralston.

Pixel & Ink plans to open for regular store hours, 10 a.m.–6 p.m., the following week. Trio’s next exhibition, “Nasty Women Athens,” will open on Friday, June 30 with a reception from 7–9 p.m."
