Originally founded thirteen years ago as a record label, Blackball Universe (BBU) has since grown into a multimedia creative collective which includes artists, musicians, writers, film authors and producers. Last year, BBU founded the Blackball Universe Gallery as a space for inspiration and creative connection. The gallery hosts local and visiting artists with a wide variety of styles and mediums.
The BBU Gallery prides itself on being unconventional in its planning and promotion. Music and live painting are an integral part of the gallery experience at BBU, which hosts art parties every 3rd Friday. The gallery strives to make art available to people from all walks of life through guerrilla event promotion and by creating a safe space which celebrates art from diverse cultures.
The BBU motto “We produce what we believe in and nothing else,” rings just as true for its gallery programming as it does for the works created at its music studio. The artists that show at the BBU Gallery are invited because their passion produces thoughtful and masterful art works, regardless of whether or not they have a track record of selling at a high price.
VISIT: View the gallery on Saturdays 12pm – 5pm. New shows with the first Saturday of every month. Attend the 3rd Friday art parties, which start at 7pm and feature a different show each month.
