A patron saint of the Brooklyn art world’s DIY, Austin Thomas is coming to Hyperallergic HQ to share her good vibes & nurturing of ideas with all who come. Thanks to artist Tamara Gonzales for the use of her painting as a background.

On Monday, January 24, starting at 7pm, Austin Thomas will be hosting an informal “Hippie Potluck” at Hyperallergic HQ and we’re calling it “Covered Dishes & Current Affairs.”

Attendees are invited to bring a covered dish for the potluck and join in the roundtable discussion about issues of importance to New York’s vibrant art community, which consists of artists, critics, curators, bloggers, writers, collectors, gallerists, art handlers, hanger-on’ers, groupies, and fans.

You can RSVP on Facebook or drop us a note to say you’re coming.

Hrag Vartanian is editor-in-chief and co-founder of Hyperallergic.
