Uniting a Culture of the Arts
- The MetaMag -
The Open Mic Gallery was a live creature evolving from the moment of it's conception.
Born of Mathew Faulkner's post on FB to create a poetry group, Greg Ramkawsky's desire for a place to express spoken word, and the hands of others providing input, resource, and locations: the ideas and concepts blended to become what is OMG. Heaping conversations, excessive caffeine, and exchanges of ideas fleshed out to create an event that would take on a life of it's own as an open mic night infused with an art gallery.
Mat and Greg strive to present the Open Mic Gallery as something that everyone can contribute to: pieces of the puzzle, parts to the body, and an organic experience that builds upon itself as other share their personal forms of expression and help.
