September 9th, 2011 · Comments

The monthly Greenwood-Phinney Art Up and Chow Down Artwalk is from 6-9 p.m. tonight. (A few galleries and restaurants stay open later.) Dozens of art galleries, restaurants and other businesses are hosting artists and musicians. Here are just a few highlights. Check out the Artwalk website for a full list.

Tonight is opening night for “Bits & Pieces” at Tasty art gallery at 7513 Greenwood Ave. N. Twenty artists used repurposed and recycled materials to create paintings, mixed media sculptures, textiles, toys, yard art, shower art, illumination art and more.

A-1 Piano Sales & Rentals at 7020 Greenwood Ave. N. is hosting artist Britt McKenzie’s color pencil landscapes and other whimsical musings (below), plus live music.

Assemble Gallery & Studio, 7406 Greenwood Ave. N., is featuring the work of Scott Scoggin of Slide Sideways. “Row Me to the Shore focuses on the interaction of shapes and flat color (below). The work exaggerates the process of silk screening and cut paper, by which one is constantly thinking about layers. Each piece assembles minimal illustration and typography, sometimes ‘collaging’ random shapes, to produce a new whole. All work is gouache on paper, and each painting is signed in pencil by the artist.”

Urban Light Studios, 8537 Greenwood Ave N, Suite 1 (inside the Greenwood Collective) has the “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad Show,” featuring the works of urban contemporary artists inspired by Mad Magazine. And if you’re hungry, the Camarena Tequila Taco Truck will be stationed in the ground level of the Greenwood Collective back alley giving away free tacos.
