It saddens us to have to share that It’s A Grind in Deep Ellum is having to close its doors due to unsustainable profits. On December 11th, 2009, ArtLoveMagic began its new partnership with a bang at It’s A Grind with an introductory event called Fireside Sessions. And since then we had been producing successful monthly events under the heading of Art & Coffee, which was previously branded when we were doing similar monthly events at Saxbys in Farmers Branch. Here are a few moments we would like to share…
“We’re big Spencer Garland fans around here. Spencer brought out some of his older material that artlovemagic founder Michael Lagocki is crazy for. Great to have him around and hopefully we’ll see more of him now that he’s back in Dallas.” – Art & Coffee February 5, 2010
“One of the most fun things about Art & Coffee these days is how many local photographers show up with cameras, shooting all the cool stuff that goes down.” – Art & Coffee March 5, 2010
“Art & Coffee is a great first show for artists new to ArtLoveMagic. This was Adele Caunce’s first show with us and her BIG UGLY FISHIES sculptures were a hit with our audience, especially the kids who Adele took the time to teach her technique to.” – Art & Coffee August 6, 2010
“Parallel Play is one of our favorite local acts. This weekend marked the last shows that banjo player Jason Miers would perform with PP. We were honored that they chose to spend two of their last three shows together with us. Parallel Play will go on with this new lineup: Jeremy Drake, Tomy Lee, and Erin Gayden. Can’t wait to see their new look!” – Art & Coffee December 3, 2010
“We even pulled a few new tricks out of our sleeve, like a live DJ covering the It’s A Grind’s outside porch area.” – Art & Coffee March 6, 2011
“One of the highlights of the night was a huge artist jam that went down outside. The team shown above is a pretty impressive lineup of local painters: from the front, Kelsey Kincannon, Daniel Perez, Ixchel Aguliar, and Eddie Walker.” – Art & Coffee March 6, 2011
“Art & Coffee has grown to become a regular destination for those who love creativity and hanging out with creative people. In recent months, we’ve expanded the show to cover a second outside stage. It’s given us room to grow and stretch out a bit, while adding new talent and new artforms.” – Art & Coffee June 6, 2011
This is really just a taste of all the incredible memories we’ve collected in such a short amount of time. We appreciate the time we’ve had at It’s A Grind and we are greatfull to have worked along side a wonderful staff and management that supported us all the way. We wish you the very best.
ART & COFFEE WILL STILL BE GOING ON THIS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2011. IT HAS BEEN MOVED TO MOKAH LOUNGE 2803 TAYLOR ST. DALLAS, TX 75226 7:30PM – 10:30PM FREE. See you there!
