MP/SNAP! Vernissage Canceled

Posted by Sisi / August 19, 2008

Ah, shucks.

We're sorry to announce that the MP/SNAP! vernissage that was going to be held this Thursday is now canceled. Why? Because:

  • Of 5 photographers, only 2 submitted hi-res versions of their photos to us on time. Meaning we can't get everything printed and ready by Thursday.

  • Because of a misunderstanding on our part, we found out relatively late that we can't actually have live music at the venue. I don't know about you guys, but piping music out of an iPod doesn't quite do it for me.

  • The original slot was from 6-8 pm. We're fickle bastards who decided after months of planning that we wanted something a bit longer than that.

In other words, we (read: I) can't get our shit together.

But not all is lost. We're going to revamp the event for another (as of yet undecided) venue. Lots of great ideas are kicking around among the writers. In addition, the contest will be re-opened to include more entries. More details on that when we've hashed them out.

BUMMER BUMMER, I am totally sad that this isnt happening now as we had made big plans around it all. I am here now, sometime in the future won't work out as well for me,

I was very excited and had a hot outfit and everything.,

Sorry it didnt work out.

One of the three reasons for cancelling was because you didn`t want to use a playlist? Lame...

Disappointing. Our gallery space is now empty for 2 weeks - if anyone has a last minute exhibit which they'd like to run, email us at and we'll try and set something up!

1. SNAP!: Good luck.
2. Eric C: We didn't have much to work with once we got rid of all the underexposed, grainy, etc. pics. Some photogs also weren't able to provide hi-res versions of their pics. We decided to go ahead with it anyway, but what's the point? That's why we canceled.
3. Amanda: Would you rather an actual band, or music playing out of a crap sound system?
4. Corey and Christine: You guys have been great. We'll still have the event.

It was a crap sound system?
