"Paint Pens in Purses" #2

UPDATE: Now with more video! I managed to grab a few shots of the artists hard at work on Friday night, with the Phoenix's old faithful flipcam, and one of our in-house video whizzes (hint:OTD) edited it all together. See the final footage, above.

Don't try to say the name of the show three times fast, just go see it. I was lucky enough to loiter around LAB - the city-hip clothing store/experimental art space/purveyor of weird Japanese toys/record seller and occasional DJ party spot - on Friday night, while store owner Kim Harris, "Paint Pens in Purses" founder Shayna Shenanigans, and other artists hung prints and photographs on the store's walls, and created a large, trippy, animal-filled mural on LAB's front windows, before the eyes of anyone passing by on Brighton Avenue. (Transforming windows into canvases, thus taking advantage of the instant audience: Allston's heavy sidewalk traffic, is the LAB crew's thing - check out photos and time-lapse video of past works here and here.) Shenanigans and friends were at LAB till the wee morning hours, prepping the space for the opening of the second installment of PPP, the "all-female urban art series" - the first was at Via Matta in August. From the looks of the packed reception party Saturday night, it was worth it. Here's hoping there'll be a third, fourth, etc. installments. Look here or here, for more information about the show. Below, you'll find photos of PPP coming together.
