Art walk Friday showcases new businesses, artists

March 10th, 2010 · Comments

It’s time once again for the monthly Art Up Artwalk along Greenwood-Phinney from 6-9 p.m. Friday. More than two dozen businesses will be open and showcasing various kinds of art.

Tasty is opening its doors for the first time on Friday at 7513 Greenwood Ave. N. The shop features “delectable collectibles” from dozens of local artists, many of whom will be on hand for the grand opening.

At the southern end of the artwalk route is another new business, open for just a few months, called Sasquatch Studios, at 6108 Phinney Ave. N. Sasquatch features home decor, photography, jewelry, clothing and accessories that are created from sustainable or vintage elements.

At the Phinney Neighborhood Center, from 7-9 p.m. is the grand opening and Artists Reception for three photographers.

The photographic works of Victoria Bjorklund, Maylee Noah and John Trela depict differing views of how we interact with the cities we live in. Victoria Bjorklund explores wonder and curiosity in her photographs which capture places that cause the figments of our imaginations to escape to a space where the real and unreal are found side by side in her portfolio titled Glass Figments. In Maylee Noah’s portfolio titled Vida Mirada: Photographs of Oaxaca, she explores the streets, markets and festivals in Oaxaca, as she is inevitably drawn into the action. John Trela’s photographs Tokyo Nights represent what a visitor to this busy and overwhelming city may experience on a night out in Tokyo.

Most of the businesses are along the Greenwood-Phinney avenues corridor, but venture east down North 73rd Street to Sugarcomb Salon at 780 N. 73rd St. to see photography by Laurie Hemingway and some really amazing Etch-a-Sketch art.

Businesses offering specials during the artwalk include: Carmelita ($5 happy hour menu all night); Emma Jean’s Consignment (30-50% off during the artwalk); and Gaspare Ristorante & Bar ($22 three-course Italian meal all night).
