What a beautiful evening for strolling the neighborhood and enjoying art and music. Forty-two art galleries and other businesses will open their doors from 6-9 p.m. tonight for the monthly Art Up Artwalk.
Here are just a few highlights. Check out the Artwalk blog for a complete list of all participating venues and artists, plus a map.
Bherd Studios Gallery has moved out of the Greenwood Collective and is now on the corner of 85th and Greenwood, at 312 N. 85th St., Suite 101 (above Chase Bank).
There is a fine line between art and retail in the gallery business and By The Yard pushes it right over the edge. Eleven artists were challenged to create a piece of work that is 1 yard long by 1 foot high which will be sold by the inch. Visitors will be encouraged to use tape measures and rulers to divvy up their favorite parts of the artwork, daring both artist and art buyer to discover how they truly feel about the production of art for sale.
Art On The Ridge is featuring “Observation Works,” block prints by Joya Marie Marsh (below).
Tasty is opening its “Erratic Expressions” exhibit of mixed-media art (below). They’ll be serving pink champagne and artists will be hand to chat about their work from 6-10 p.m.
The artists at Two Birds Tattoo at 7408 Greenwood Ave. N. will show how they design tattoos to customers. They’ll show tattoo stencils and photos of finished tattoos to show the process.
A-1 Piano at 7020 Greenwood Ave. N. features the work of 11-year-old Max Ayotte Basom (below).
Francine Seders Gallery, 6701 Phinney Ave. N., is featuring paintings by Jill Bullitt and Merle Martinson (below), and drawings by Robert McNown.
And two new art studios are opening their doors for tonight’s Artwalk. Warlock Labs and The Studio of AWESOME are located at 101 N. 85th St., above Mori Japanese Restaurant, in suites 201 and 203.
The studios feature fine artists, graphic artists, illustrators, and crafters, including reusable grocery totes, housewares (below), jewelry, and handmade costumes for kids.
