Congratulations to Clint Lugert for winning Best of Show, with POWER!
“The basis of the illustration for POWER comes from the colossus of industry himself, Cecil Rhodes. An ardent imperialist and almost certainly, a prick, this man founded the infamous De Beers diamond company. His attempted telegraph from Cape Town to Cairo was a dismal failure which we thought was the perfect image for a sardonic look at the ongoing attempts of Great Britain to successfully colonize Africa. Yes, the word POWER is between his legs on purpose.”
Another special thanks to everyone involved in making ARTENBRU 2010 a huge success!

ArtenBRU is TONIGHT at 8:00 p.m. at Black Dog Cafe - 4th and Broadway in Lowertown.
It’s a cash-only event, including poster sales. $7 at the door.
Here’s what that gets ya:
Hope to see y’all there. It’s sure to be a blast.
ARTENBRU is shifting gears.
We were told several months ago that sampling the beers would be on the up and up, but The Man came calling this week to tell us a different story. So sadly, the fantastic beers our BRUmasters created will have to stay in the keg a little longer.
But that’s the end of the bad news.
The good news: ARTENBRU will still take place tomorrow, FRIDAY, NOV. 19 at 8:00 p.m. at the Black Dog Cafe in Lowertown. You’ll still see great posters. Pints of Surly Furious and Fulton Lonely Blonde will still be available all night for only $2. DJ Double Trouble will still be spinning records — vinyl style — starting at 9:00 p.m. . And of course, you’ll still have chance to win some great prizes in our raffle.
The good people of ARTENBRU, we will see you tomorrow at 8:00!
Please let us know if you have specific questions by emailing us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
CHEERS! Nick, Sam and James
Circumstances have a way of changing, and when they do, we want you to be at ARTENBRU at 8:00pm sharp at the Black Dog Cafe (308 Prince Street, Lowertown, St. Paul).
I’m no rocket scientist, but… Less Time + Same Energy = More Posters?
Be there November 19th, 8:00pm for ARTENBRU. DJ Double Trouble goes live at 9:00pm! It’s a win-win.
For more details, check the ABOUT section.
See you there.
The beer is crafted and the designs are in! I can feel the collaborative spirit flowing like the taps at Black Dog Café will be Friday, November 19th for ARTENBRU.

A craftsman if one ever existed, David A. Smith creates ornate glass works of art from scratch from his London studio. This raises an interesting question of purpose and function as part of the necessity of businesses to promote their services and wares.
He creates a custom process to hand-place gold leaf on a reverse-cut plate of glass for his clients. We tweet 140 characters and move on. Sad, in too many, many ways.
