Screens ‘n’ Suds began in 2009 as a collaboration between Brian Gearing, Sam Verrill and Ric Hersh. The yearly beer and concert poster event and series benefits The National MS Society and Richmond-area charities chosen by event and series contributors.
The Screens 'n' Suds 2010 Series continues Sam Verrill's mission to marry beautiful art to great causes. Four years ago, he launched Screens 'N' Spokes, an art show and bike team, to benefit the Greater Delaware Valley chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. To-date, over 80 prints have been produced between the Spokes and Suds series, and including events, the team has raised over $130,000 for the MS Society. In 2008 and 2009, he worked with the Independents Coffee Cooperative of Philadelphia to curate the Beans 'N' Screens show to benefit the fair-trade Cooperativa San Fernando.This year, they have an original print show at Gallery 5 in Richmond, VA on First Friday, the night before the big event at Capital Ale House on Saturday 11/5.
