If you've been waiting for a good excuse to make a giant batch of your favorite cookies or looking for a way to share all that extra swiss chard in the garden, we have a good one.
The name is a mash-up of the words slideshow and potluck but this is not your typical slideshow and potluck a la tuna noodle casserole and your aunt and uncle's trip to Bermuda with their new camera. It's an innovative gathering where 200 - 2000 art and food loving folks bring homemade dishes to share while making new friends and enjoying a night of local art (of all mediums and professional levels) presented as a series of 5 minute inventive slideshow/storytelling presentations for a total of 90 minutes of visual celebration. Artists range from fine art professionals to your neighbor who paints at night in their garage.
Slideluck Potshows started back in 2000 when Casey Kelbaugh hosted the first in his Seattle backyard for 50 of his friends. He is now based in New York City, where Kelbaugh assists other cities around the world in hosting these events and has even started a youth program and a green initiative.
