It’s that time again. Friday, July 1st is the first Friday on the month and so the Fremont First Friday Art Walk will go down between 6-9 pm.
In the spirit of the “Red, White, & Dead” zombie gathering in Fremont the next day, Fremont Arts Council will host a booth starring a make-up special-effects artist teaching the undead-curious how to do easy scars & zombie make up starting at 6:30pm at the Lenin Statue. Pickled Okra string band will also be performing their jig-inducing tunes in Lenin Square from 7:30pm – 9pm.
Some of the other locations and artists on the walk include…
Venue: Fremont Brewing Co.
Address: 3409 Woodland Park Ave N.
Exhibit: Born of Scottish parents, raised in Switzerland, trained by the Dutch at the de Kooning Academie, figurative painter Fiona McGuigan brings a worldly view to her paintings of wrestlers and dancers. Her current work is all about capturing the human figure in motion, finding the moment of impact when bodies collide and exploring the nationalistic overtones found in images of Swiss wrestling.
Venue: Brown Paper Tickets
Address: 309 N 36th St, Seattle, WA 98103, above LTD Bar & Grill
Exhibit: Employee Show:
New to the neighborhood, Brown Paper Tickets will also be hosting a show focusing on the creative talents of their own Paintings, Photography, Masks, Pen & Ink Drawings
Venue: Fremont Cigar
Address: 3526 Fremont Place N., Ste. D (behind Lenin statue)
Exhibit: Cigar Box instruments date back to the 1840’s, and thanks to artists like John Hughes & Ed McGehee, you can still find them being displayed and sold at tucked-away jewels like Fremont Cigar. And while you’re there, take in the luminous, summer-drenched photography of Josh Hughes – a budding photographer and student at Central Washington University.
