This Saturday Night In New York City: Slideluck Potshow V

Nov 9, 2005

Casey Kelbaugh wants to remind all NPPA members and interested photojournalists that Slideluck Potshow V will be held this Saturday, November 12, at Eddie Adams’s Bathhouse Studios in the East Village in New York City, where more than 40 artists will present their work across two floors of display space.

The event will be emceed by Ian Webster and dee-jay Neil Stevenson will provide audio entertainment. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the slide shows begin at 9:30 p.m. The theme for Slideluck Potshow V is “Anticipation.”

“Please remember to bring good food and drink. Spirits are encouraged. We look forward to a bountiful feast and a cornucopia of slide presentations,” Kelbaugh says. “We are anticipating a real zinger and we hope to see you there.”

Slideluck Potshow V is the fifth such event Kelbaugh, an advertising and editorial photographer, has presented since he founded the first gathering in 2000.

"Slideluck Potshow is a slideshow and a potluck to which members of NYC's arts, photography, and media communities bring food, drink, and a maximum of 5 minutes worth of slides," Kelbaugh writes about the event on his Web site. "The evening begins with a couple hours of dining on the home-cooked delights of participants, while drinking and mingling.

"There is no entrance fee or guest list; one's admission is a full-bodied bottle of wine, some vegetable samosas, Thai green curry, pumpkin ravioli, or some rosemary lamb chops. All guests are asked to contribute as there is no corporate sponsorship, arts, or professional organization sponsoring the event. It is entirely independent and participation-based. Following the potluck, the lights are dimmed, the crowd is hushed, and a spectacular slideshow commences."
