Thursday the 21st of November saw the launch night of the Retrograde: Classic Videogame Art Show at The Wick at Both Ends here in Sheffield. After a relatively easy hanging of all the work in the morning – the pieces were being hung on a variety of different walls and surfaces so I’d envisioned it taking a lot longer - we kicked things off in evening with some gaming themed cocktails and retro game music. We’d noticed the Facebook event page was getting a lot of attention and I’d spoken to a few people in the run-up about the gaming theme of the show really resonating with people. Turns out people love all things retro gaming! We managed to pack out the bar and I spent most of the night chatting to people about their gaming memories. Big thanks to the staff at The Wick, the Bowser Blood and Snakes Tuxedo cocktails went down a storm but I imagine kept the bar staff on their toes!
The show runs until Thursday the 5th of December so you’ve still got a few days to check it out.
