After Hours

Midnight ravers, all-nighters, night owls, nighthawks, "last call"...or is this just the beginning?  Vestige Concept Gallery wants to know what happens long after the sun goes down.   After Hours seeks to showcase works of art that feature nightlife and/or, life, at night.  Works could be about bars and nightclubs, speakeasys, smoky lounges, filled with music: jazz, blues, soul, rock, hip-hop... to late night diners, the El-train, taxis, drag, drag racing, street life, gangsters, graffiti, hookups, drinking, sex, nudes, partying, and drugs.  Have a nightcap and catch the red-eye.  (But remember, keep it classy!)  

We accept works from emerging, mid-career, and/or professional artists. Work should somehow relate to the theme of the show.
