Where can you find art, naked body painting, face painting, music, and free chocolate, all under the same roof? At The Chocolate and Art Show, of course.
Friday night a girlfriend and I went to the 2 day event at Paragon 7 Art Studio and Gallery in Atlanta, hosted by The Chocolate & Art Show.
According to their website, The Chocolate and Art show was created 3 years ago by a gentleman named Danilo Santos as a way to get underground artists of several mediums and lovers of art under one roof with to share their talents, network, and of course indulge in chocolate and other treats.
Paragon 7 Art Studio and Gallery was the perfect venue to host this event because the space is very accommodating and made the transition of flowing from space to space very easy. There were about about 5 different rooms that boasted some of the most beautiful pieces you will ever see as well as vendors selling beautiful handmade jewelry, bags, clothes, and more.
The main room, its walls adorned in art (as were all of the other rooms except for one) housed two buffet tables that sat in the middle of the room for guests to enjoy the milk and white chocolate fountains with strawberries, cookies, bananas, and other sweet treats provided for dipping! In that same room guests mingled, marveled over the amazing pieces, and admired the two women allowing their bodies to be canvases for the night.
In the backroom there was a DJ whose music could be heard throughout the studio as well as a bar and couches for seating if you needed a breather.
What made this event to me was the atmosphere. Everyone was friendly, the vibe was laid-back, and everything just flowed and melded together beautifully. I’ve also got to shout out the staff, everyone was pleasant and extremely friendly… A rarity in Atlanta, I find.
