    Gonzo Art Party at Revelry Boutique Gallery
    Print this page

    Revelry Boutique Gallery is a lovely hub of all things local and handmade, located in the heart of NuLu. Revelry is part gallery and part boutique. They feature local artists and offer affordable (and adorable) handcrafted items. It’s a place to find the things you never knew you needed. This Friday, March 6th, the eccentric art store will host a Gonzo Art Party in an effort to raise funds for GonzoFest Louisville 2015

    The party will include live art by Grant Goodwine (one of two Official GonzoFest artists), live music, beer from West Sixth Brewing, and hor d'oeuvres by The Café. You can also purchase your 2015 GonzoFest ticket for just $10.00!

    The Gonzo Art Party is a free event with complimentary drinks and food, but donations will be graciously accepted in order to keep the Gonzo spirit alive and evolving. Last year GonzoFest along with many partners were able to commemorate Hunter S. Thompson by creating a “Hunter’s Gonzoville” banner displayed on the Bristol Bar and Grill building on Bardstown Road. This year the fest intends to continue this tradition of commemoration with a bronze statue of Thompson by local sculptor, Matthew Weir

    Grant Goodwine’s limited edition GonzoFest 2015 print will be for sale and he will also auction off the original 23’’x 31’’ painting framed and signed to help raise money for the festival and Thompson statue.  

    So come join Gonzo-enthusiasts, art lovers, and beer drinkers alike to support local art and Louisville’s GonzoFest. If you need more convincing than that, just remember these words by our beloved Thompson, “Sleep late, have fun, get wild, drink whiskey and drive fast on empty streets with nothing in mind but falling in love and not getting arrested”. See you there!
