Last Saturday Salon At Mechanical says
This month we’re celebrating “Artcest”, a collaborative group show, which opens just before the salon upstairs in the Ford Gallery. The artists — Ali Schlicting, Christopher Creath, Emily Bates, Matt Schlosky and Jennifer Griffo — will be on hand. Here’s the FB event:

Art Coasters! Forget those boring drink coasters you’ve been stealing from bars, take home some of our brand new Art Coasters featuring works by each of our Artcest artists. These are free at the Artcest opening and at the salon, but the only way to get some is to show up. We have a limited supply, so please take only one of each of the five types to make sure we can get some to everyone.

And St Patrick was disgusted with your behavior last week. He and other heavenly notables will be on hand to mercilessly judge you. We first performed the stage play version at last year’s March salon, but due to some freak accidents with lightning bolts after that performance, the original cast is unavailable. The author, Ross Blanchard, will risk a smiting and read the original short story version.

Stew Golomb, owner of Moonbrine just down the hallway in the Ford Building, will bring in some of his delicious pickles for us to sample. We’ve been tinkering with some of Stew’s pickle brine cocktails, too.

If you’re new to the drill, we're in the basement of the Ford Building, 2505 SE 11th Ave.

Enter through the back doors by the loading dock off of 11th Ave. Make your way downstairs. Follow the noise.

We're trying to get those back doors left unlocked a little later than normal. Otherwise, someone will be posted there to let you in.

If you get locked out of the building or can't find us, text or call

Ross at 503-449-3305, or
Ali at 503-869-6105.

Someone will run up and let you in or give you directions.

As usual for the Salon events, please feel free to bring your own refreshments. We have coolers to keep drinks cold. If you show up empty-handed (that happens) we'll take care of you.
