Photo Gallery: RAW presents Mixology at The Abbey
Last Thursday night (July 12) the recently-formed Orlando chapter of RAW: natural born artists staged “Mixology,” their inaugural event at The Abbey. RAW is an international independent arts organization “created by artists, for artists” with affiliates in over 65 locations nationwide and in Australia.
For their local debut, RAW presented a mix of visual art, music, fashion, and jewelry, in a festive cocktail-party environment. I arrived in time to catch the conclusion of the Like a Pistol retro fashion show, when a sizable attentive crowd was still in attendance.
Before leaving, I chatted with Ron Legler, CEO of Florida Theatrical Association (the organization that oversees the venue). He seemed pleased with the turnout, saying that the event is expected to be a monthly occurrence (the next is scheduled for August 9), and will expand to include a short film element.
Enjoy these photographs from the evening, and check RAW's website for information on future happenings.
