November 13, 2010, Saturday - Volunteer Biennial: A Very Much More Opening Reception at the Soap Factory

Time: 7:00pm–11:00pm

Location: Soap Factory, 518 Second Street SE

The Soap Factory’s 2010 Volunteer Biennial, A Very Much More, opens on Saturday, November 13.  The show will feature a variety of exciting new artwork from emerging artists among the Soap Factory's large volunteer force.  52 individual artists and collaborative groups have responded to this year’s theme:  "New and old, everyday and exotic, scrapped together and manufactured, a beautiful mess of things collect and gather, swapping their pasts for new purpose."  A Very Much More will showcase over 60 selected works including installation, painting, video and sculpture.

The Soap Factory relies heavily on its volunteer force of over 300, many of whom are artists. Most Soap Factory initiatives and exhibitions, including the popular Haunted Basement, rely heavily on volunteer support, creativity, wit and sweat. The Volunteer Biennial is no exception, as it is curated, designed, organized and installed completely by a committee of volunteers.

The exhibit and opening reception are free and open to the public. The exhibit runs November 13 - December 5.
