20 Buck Chuck | SPECTRE Arts | Arts | Indy Week


20 Buck Chuck

When: Fri., Dec. 16, 6-9 p.m. 2016

Every year around this time, the folks at SPECTRE Arts go a little bit insane, grab one another by the shoulders, fix one another with burning expressions, and simultaneously scream, "Oh my god, let's sell all the art!" That, at least, is the impression given by 20 Buck Chuck, the Golden Belt-area gallery's annual art sale and family-friendly holiday party, where a motley crew of local artists break out the good stuff for a good price and give half of the take to charity. This year you can bring home originals, made just for the show, by the likes of Warren Hicks, Martha Clippinger, Rachel Goodwin, and Bill Fick. The sale supports North Carolina's Arts for Life, a nonprofit for people with serious illnesses and disabilities, and you can also purchase twenty-dollar artworks by children at Duke hospital, for which they keep all the profits. Bring your own kids to enjoy card-crafting with Happymess Arts, not to mention caroling, a campfire, cocoa, and marshmallows to toast. The event doubles as a birthday party for gallery owner Alicia Lange, so there should be plenty of fun for adults, too. The sale includes art by INDY staffers Steve Oliva and Christopher Williams. —Brian Howe
