Weekend Arts Agenda: Indie Craft Experience

Get an early jump on holiday present shopping this weekend at the Holiday Indie Craft Experience, featuring nearly 100 local and regional crafters and artists selling everything from jewelry, art, clothing, home decor, and other crafts. The Good Food truck will be on site serving up favorites to hungry shoppers, and it would be wise to come early since the first 250 attendees this Saturday and Sunday will be given a 'swag bag' that features samples, stickers, little presents, and swag from the vendors at the event. Doors open at 11 a.m. at Ambient Plus Studio on Sat. and Sun., where you can shop, til you have to stop at 6 p.m. More after the jump in this Weekend Arts Agenda.

TINDELMICHI, a creative project between John Tindel and Michi Meko, is exhibiting a new collection of work titled Baptism By Fire at Barbara Archer Gallery. Collaborating on each piece as if they were one artist, Meko and Tindel look to redefine the South their parents knew. Using themes like advertising, graffiti, and rural life TINDELMICHI offers a new lens for viewing the South we know today. An opening reception will be held Friday from 7-9 p.m.

Beep Beep Gallery is holding a pretty cool event this Friday titled Invent Room Pop. The premise is that 6 musician's names are placed in a hat, then two or three names are drawn at random, which leads to impromptu duo or trio groups who play a song or two together. This cool idea has become a regular installment at Beep Beep monthly, and it kicks off tonight at 9 p.m.

Saturday

Octane Coffee in Grant Park plays host to a fundraiser for local arts organizations WonderRoot and Burnaway on Sat. from 5 p.m. to midnight. A portion of all purchases will be donated to these two organizations that do so much for the Atlanta art scene, so stop by for a chocolate croissant or a latte to show your support.
