It’s the last day of Art-A-Whirl! If you are in the Twin Cities area, please stop by the Minneapolis Arts District in Northeast Minneapolis. I share a studio with Liz and two other artists in the Casket Arts Building. We’d love to see you at Studio 318. I am displaying the first print installation of my Writers Hands Series. Liz has a series of photographs in retro frames. Carol and Margery are displaying paintings and black and white photographs. Yesterday Carol did a demo on making egg tempera paint to a crowd of people who had gathered around. It was a great success.
The Northeast Arts District was recently written up in the New York Times. We drove down 13th Avenue yesterday on our way to the studio (past The Modern, The Ritz, and Shuga Records) and it was jammed with music and art lovers! I am grateful for the support of friends, family, and red Ravine readers over the years. And grateful for community. Thanks for the beautiful flowers for the Art-A-Whirl opening oliverowl. And to ybonesy, fellow artist and my blog partner on red Ravine. A special thanks to the Midwest Writing Group who followed my progress on this photo project month by month. And to all of our local friends who have stopped by to support us – a huge thank you.
More than 500 artists participate in AAW, including potters, tile makers, painters, sculptors, musicians, photographers, glass blowers, printmakers, and textile designers. They showcase their art in warehouses, galleries, homes, storefronts and cafes.
Art-A-Whirl, presented by the Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association, is the largest open studio and gallery tour in the United States.
It is a highly anticipated annual event that welcomes local and regional visitors to the Arts District in Northeast Minneapolis to see the art being made in this area and to meet the artists.
As visitors come to see the art over the three-day weekend they also experience the unique and welcoming community of Northeast Minneapolis.
