Pre-Preamble Post August 5, 2009

Posted by cbuchanan in Uncategorized.

Can you believe Artwalk is just a month away? And all the excitement begins tomorrow evening with the first Preamble, Artwalk’s always-fun preview party and silent auction. Like last year, Artwalk is holding four Preambles–one for each Thursday in August–leading up to the main event on Sept. 11-12 in the downtown loft district.

Here’s the schedule:
August 6–Twist & Shout Dueling Piano Bar, Five Points South
(auction features glass, ceramics, jewelry, sculpture)

August 13–Bottletree Cafe
(auction features paintings and mixed media)

August 20–Steppers & Walkers, 2223 4th Ave. N. downtown
(auction features photography)

August 27–Rogue Tavern (2nd Ave. N. downtown)
(auction features all media)

I’ve seen a lot of the auction items this year, and they are impressive! (Visit the Artwalk page on Facebook for a photo preview.) Plus you’ll be able to bid on tickets and other goodies from local attractions, restaurants, events, and cultural organizations. I’ll have a large new wall piece titled “The Road Home” in the progressive auction, which means it will take bids at all four Preambles, with the winner being announced at the final one.

All Preambles will last from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Check the Artwalk site for full details, particularly the part about how you can win $250 to spend during Artwalk. And be sure to click the “2009 Artist Gallery” link at the top of that page to see who’s coming to the festival this year. I’m really liking the quality and variety of the art, and there are several new names, which I always enjoy seeing.
