View the Work

Friday night was Kraken at Subtext with a crowd of 300+ that came out to show their support and celebrate Subtex’s 5th birthday. And live music from The Makeup Sex and tasty bites from MIHO Gastrotruck made the show that much better. Thanks again to everyone who has supported us over the years… Subtext loves you! A special thanks to Max Dolberg for photographing the event. More pics after the jump.

About the Show: What’s the best way to celebrate Subtext’s 5th anniversary? Krakens, of course! For this epic show, we’ve been hunting down vintage aquatic-themed paintings for over a year now, and we’ve found some gems from all over the country. Each artist was given a painting with a body of water in it, and then asked to “Kraken-ize” it by adding some sea monsters, hydro-creatures or aquatic beasts of their liking. The result will be nothing short of awesome. Release the Kraken marks the 5th year of our gallery, and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate it with you!
