Screens ‘N’ Suds will celebrate their tenth anniversary with a beer and art festival this Saturday November 9th at Studio Two Three starting at 11am. If you love beer and/or art, you should check this event out. Yes, I could point to the beer list (Spoiler Alert: the beers will be awesome) and tell you which beers I would try but I thought I would show you a few of my favorite pieces of art that I have purchased at SNS over the years.

These first two prints were created by Andrew Stronge for SnS’s fourth and fifth anniversaries. I love the robot theme. Year 4 reminds me of H.E.R.B.I.E. from the Fantastic Four comic books. Year 5 has us submitting to our robot overlord.

This “Experiment with Beer” print resides in my kitchen. Ironically, it took me a few SnS visits to decide to grab this. I’m so glad I did. I couldn’t imagine being without it.

I know what you are thinking, why would I have two versions of the same print? The simple answer is Douglas and I couldn’t agree on which one was best. I loved how the print on the left was made on a map. He loved the foil and bold color of the other. So they both came home with us.

This Tropical Galaxy print came around the time I was going crazy over how awesome the movie Guardians of the Galaxy was. Of course, I had to have this movie poster styled beer label.

And then there is the hop drip….I don’t think I realized until this very moment the MC Escher-ness of this print. See how the drop falling from the hop is being met with liquid rising from the surface?

Now the only question is what will I end up with this year? Head over to the Facebook event for more details and updates including how to get VIP tickets. Remember proceeds from this event will benefit National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, Studio Two Three, and Gallery 5.
