"We're saying buy everything at > $10,000 at NevADA.  We'll let you know when it's time to liquidate!" 


The directors of NevADA Art Fair [1] are pleased to announce the inaugural edition located in New New Berlin, a booming artistic center on the Gulf Coast of Texas [2].  We are excited to present some of the hottest trends in contemporary art from the Neomodern revival currently sweeping MFA programs across the globe. Showcasing the works from a select group of avant-garde MFA students [3], NevADA is excited to offer new entry points into the fast-growing art market for the discerning collector.

We invite you to experience Texas' newest art fair at the Vernissage on Saturday August 23rd, 2014 from 6pm - 9pm. Situated in the heart of downtown New New Berlin [4] at the beautiful Galveston Artist Residency, NevADA is set to bring cutting-edge culture to this promising artistic community. The opening party has been carefully designed to capture the excitement of the wild, wooly-west atmosphere of today's art market. All guests who wear Western-inspired attire will receive a VIP card and free admission to the party [5].

Please join us in celebrating the opening of NevADA along with local residents of New New Berlin and our generous sponsors: New New Berlin Development and Le Banco des Vertrauens.  Representatives from NNBD will be offering guided tours of their amazing new gated-communities and representatives from Le Banco des Vertrauens are ready to offer on-demand mortgages for everyone. Take this opportunity to speak with them about their new art investment opportunities in convenient off-shore accounts.

Come for the cutting-edge artwork and stay for the possibilities of New New Berlin -- you may never want to leave!

[1] This is not a real art fair, but there will be an art fair with GUNS! Paintball guns, but still GUNS! It's Texas bitch.

[2] It's actually located in Galveston at the GAR. New New Berlin is inspired by Bill Arning's quote that Houston is the "new Berlin," which we could not disagree with more.

[3] All works depicted are the product of William Powhida and Jade Townsend inspired by the waves of shit flooding the art market.

[4] This might be the exhibition and will remain open through October 25th if you can't make the opening.

[5] This is absolutely true! Bring your Stetsons, cowboy boots, and line-dancing dresses! Free booze for people in costume.
