After an absolute blast at Hot One Inch Action's summer show at Hand-Eye Supply, we couldn't be more pleased to announce their return to our Portland store on December 1st. What's more, they are accepting submissions now until Nov. 16th, so submit your tiny art work for the show at their website.
For those of you who missed it the first time—Conceived by Jim Hoehnle and Chris Bentzen in 2004, Hot One Inch Action is the original, one-night only show of button art and social interaction from Vancouver, BC.
Hot One Inch Action reproduces the tiny art of 50 local artists on one inch buttons. At the show, we sell mixed packs of 5 buttons for $5. If you want a specific button, you'll either have to take a chance and buy more mixed packs of random buttons OR trade with the other people at the event.
With none of the pretentiousness of a regular art show, everyone interacts out of necessity—"I want that button!"—and the evening becomes a relaxed and fun event for people of all-ages.
Hot One Inch Action is now accepting artist submissions for all of its 2011 shows (Seattle, WA, Vancouver, BC, and Portland, OR). It's free to submit and chosen artists receive 20 free copies of their button. Each show highlights and showcases local artists from their respective cities, all Portland artists, designers, photographers and button enthusiasts are encouraged to submit! The submission deadline for the Portland show is Wednesday November 16 at 12pm (noon).
Thursday, Dec. 1st
Admission is free. Mixed packs of 5 buttons are $5.
