12 MIDNITE, generally acknowledged as the proud pappy of Canada’s
Lowbrow scene ends his six week run at the CHAPEL this Saturday…. and
he’s bringing some pals along for the ride.
LOUD LOWBROW is a showcase of midnite’s artwork, music and custom cars,
presented in the confines of a converted art deco funeral chapel
through the good graces of Chapelarts owner Nathan Wiens and curator
Jennifer Abrams.

The opening was a spectacle that saw the street packed with of wicked
hotrods, while inside the CHAPEL’S posh interior the black leather
rubbed against Armani as art hungry fans had the red dots flying for
the work of MIDNITE and fellow pop-punk pioneer I, Braineater.

This time, Abrams has 12 MIDNITE teaming up with ROBERT CHAPLIN, who
has been referred to as one of Canada’s hidden artistic treasures.

CHAPLIN AT THE CHAPEL will have Chaplin taking over the ground floor
with is prodigious output including ink drawings, paintings, meticulous
metal, stone and glass sculptures, children’s books and if we’re lucky,
a copy of his world’s smallest published book
(http://www.robertchaplin.ca/pubs/teeny/ )
Beneath his mild mannered exterior lies the soul of an evil genius that
has captured the hearts of clever collectors far and wide.

Speaking of clever collectors, this will be Vancouver’s last chance of
the year to scoop up 12 Midnite art as it’s being packed-up to travel
to distant realms…Consider yourself warned.

As an added bonus, MELISSA JAMES will be screening “SHAKE, RATTLE AND
ROLL” her short documentary on the Vancouver Rockabilly scene which was
shot in part at THE CHAPEL during the LOUD LOWBROW opening.

Music for the evening will be provided by THE STINGING HORNETS
featuring a collection of long-time rockabilly legends including HOWARD
RIX and JIMMY ROY in all their sweat-and-bourbon-soaked greaseball
glory.

And if that weren’t enough, the 10th marks Chapelarts owner NATHAN
WIENS’ annual 29th birthday party! Who knows, there might even be
cake….
