There is so much to see, network, learn, and shop!

We are proud to host an artist's reception / solo art exhibition highlighting the magnificent work of famed artist, Robert Dampier Studio, from Galveston, TX, who creates amazing three-dimensional assemblage pieces from found objects, with intellectual and esoteric themes, a steampunk feel, and fantastic old world imagery. He was commissioned for his assemblage work to create unique props which are featured in the upcoming Universal Pictures film, "The House with the Clock In Its Walls" starring Jack Black and Cate Blanchett, scheduled to be released September 2018. Dampier’s esteemed work is a must-have for any serious art collector.

The reception takes place upstairs from 7pm-midnight. During the reception, there will be an intimate performance at 9pm by the whimsically macabre string quartet, Two Star Symphony.

We also welcome Guest DJ Detra (San Antonio, TX) spinning darkwave/goth underground downstairs all night.
