ArtWalk this Friday in the 'hood

The shops along Phinney and Greenwood will be a feast for the eyes this weekend at the Greenwood ArtWalk.  Friday from 6-9pm is opening night so put your walking shoes on and view the variety our neighborhood has to offer. Be sure to head north of 85th to see the amazing showings at the Sip and Ship 8560 Greenwood Ave N.

Another amazing showing is at the Urban Light Studios 8537 Greenwood Ave N, across the street from the Sip and Ship. A little tricky to find, but worth your time. Their shows are well thought out and maximize the use of space and light.

Sip and Ship has secured two local artists: Jewelry maker, Julie Cechony creates necklaces, earrings and other baubles, and artist Chris Nelson creates one of kind art inspired by Ming Dynasty artist Bada Shanren.

Urban Light Studios presents “Night Asia ” Photography by Kevin Law: Bland concrete expanses give way to rainbows of glowing color, movements of people and machine exaggerated as comets of lights coming and going. From the twinkling red lights of Tokyo to the floating billboards of Shanghai, the scenes are simultaneously spectacular and bizarrely serene. Through the use of long exposures, the dimension of time is added to these images, allowing the frenetic pace and startling beauty of the modern Asian metropolis to be re-created in "Night Asia."

Another unusual treat at this show, we will be showcasing living orchid arrangements which juxtapose sweet delicate orchid plants with salvaged and organic contrasts.
