I'm counting down the months before I move to Kansas, and I'm hoping to cram in as many artwalks as possible before I go. This Thursday I'll be at the Last Thursday Artwalk on Alberta, and next week I'll do a First Thursday event at PosterGarden in the Pearl. Come on out and visit—I'll have my Art-o-matic, a few Etch-a-Sketches, and my Portland ink drawings for sale.
Here are the full details:
Last Thursday, April 26
~5pm - 10pm
NE Alberta, usually somewhere around 21st Ave if there's space. If you've never been to a Last Thursday Artwalk, you should definitely come check it out. It runs from about 30th Avenue all the way to 15th (or possibly further), and there's all sorts of visual art, performance art, music, and a general atmosphere of fun. Stop by, chat with artists, buy some art!
First Thursday, May 3
NW 14th & Irving (just one block west of the Street Gallery) PosterGarden hosts their own First Thursday event with a few artist booths up front and then a larger gallery space in the back, with live music and wine. This is my first time doing an event there. It's really close to the Street Gallery on 13th, so if you're out checking out artwork there, hop over a block and say hello.
Hope to see you out at the artwalks!

Moving to kansas...... wow. I moved here from kansas 7 years ago. vastly different, and yet some the same. Wichita art scene is definately worth checking out, including, but not limited to the Wichita State U outdoor sculpture exhibits. Some good people/artists there: Todd whipple - iron sculpture, Peter Mader - wood/paint/music, Randal Julian - metal sculpture, Diane Lincoln - general, plenty of others.....Lawrence, Ks is big art town - and they'll be happy to tell you all about that(ok, they can be a little "artsy-er than thou", but still worth while place) You might be surprised at some of the art & artists you'll find in some of the small towns there. Expect extremes in weather as the norm. Love your etch-a-sketch stuff and Jack-o-lanterns especially.
