Celebrate art in the ‘Hood! The BIG One Art Walk and Northwest Fine Arts Competition open tonight

Friday, May 10, 6-9 pm & Saturday, May 11, 12-5 pm

This weekend is the annual PhinneyWood Art Walk: The BIG One. Now in its 24th year, the BIG One will feature art in 60+ businesses in the Phinney-Greenwood neighborhood. The BIG One typically includes photography, sculpture, collage, oils, watercolors, prints, glass, metal and fiber art, ceramics and mixed media.

Over the years, this hugely popular event has turned into a neighborhood party with musical performances in participating businesses and churches, street performers, chalk art and activities for children. In the spirit of the art walk theme of “Art Up, Chow Down,” restaurants and pubs are encouraged to participate as well by offering music or menu specials.  For additional information, check artupphinneywood.com or the art walk’s Facebook page.

Also, The Northwest Fine Arts Competition Opening Reception is this evening at the Phinney Center. Celebrate artists of the Pacific Northwest. View 46 pieces by 27 local artists, chosen by a jury. Meet the artists, enjoy refreshments and music by the Phinney Ridge Youth Orchestra, vote for your favorite piece for People’s Choice, and maybe even add to your collection. A must-stop on your BIG One Art Walk tour! The show will be on display from May 8 to June 14.
