featuring the art of 50 artists reproduced on limited edition 1″ buttons
Conceived by Jim Hoehnle and Chris Bentzen in 2004, Hot One Inch Action is the original, one-night only show of button art and social interaction from Vancouver, BC. The tiny art of fifty different artists is reproduced on one inch buttons. These limited edition buttons are displayed on the gallery wall and the audience is offered the opportunity to buy randomly selected buttons in mixed bags of five for $5. Didn’t get the button you want? Trade with the people around you… how bad do you want that button?! That’s when the hot action starts. Artists for 2012 included: Aaron White, Adaryn Ko, Andrea Hooge, Ariane Khachatourians, Arinn Westendorf, Ash Tanasiychuk, Becky McEachern, Brenna Kanski, Cameron Steele, Carelle B.
