Learn to Collect / 2:ND Fridays / You could have won a smart phone / Jenny Morgan Press!

As some of you may know, this past Friday, May 13th, Like the Spice teamed up with AT&T to create the event Learn to Collect.

Participants of the event had the opportunity to win an HTC Inspire 4G smartphone provided by AT&T. In order to win this awesome (and oh-so-functional) trophy, one had to 'create personal art collections' of the works displayed at participating 2nd Friday galleries in Williamsburg by photographing them and posting them to the event's Facebook page. The uploader with the most photos will win the smartphone, and we'll be announcing the winner later on this week.

The gallery crawl was a great success and the twelve participating galleries had hundreds of visitors over the course of the night. Hal Lenox, AT&T's New York State President said, "We were thrilled to sponsor the event which connects galleries with art enthusiasts in this thriving artistic community." You're a pal, Hal.

Check out some of the shout-outs we got from Tusk Strategies, Art Online Galleries and Near Brooklyn!

Check out art blogger Heidi Alamanda's great photos of Jenny Morgan's One and the Many opening here!

Eyes Towards the Dove also has some great things to say about our current exhibit!

Be sure to RSVP to our monthly dinner series for this month's A Layered Menu and an opportunity to speak with artist Jenny Morgan about her latest series of work!
