Art-A-Whirl 2017!

Hello everyone,
If you are a friend of mine on facebook (where I am much more active - have heard plenty about it, but we have been working hard to get ready for Art-A-Whirl 2017.  This will be our 4th in the Solar Arts building (Above Indeed Brewery). We are in a new location over by the stair. The space is a little narrower than the last and houses Marcy, Leo, and I.
Friday, May 19th – 5:00-10:00 p.m.
Saturday, May 20th – Noon-8:00 p.m.
Sunday, May 21st – Noon-5:00 p.m.
711 15th avenue NE, MPLS
2nd Floor Studio 216 (by the stairs)
Please come and see us.  We have repainted the place, gotten art matted, framed, and even have progress pieces on the wall.  I will also have the recent collaboration with a high school student through MN Make a Wish Foundation on display.
This year we have worked to original art for all budgets:
-$5 dollar linoleum cut prints
- Over 90 shrink-wrapped matted pieces from $40 - $140
- Small framed pieces from $20
- Larger framed pieces from $200 - $1600
- Non-matted smaller originals from $10 - $90
- Non-matted larger originals from $90 - $200
- Smaller signed prints framed and unframed from $10 - $40
- Marcy has prints of her Geisha and Kids looking at a Polaroid
- Or just come to visit and see what is new and the amazing artist on the second floor.
Northrup King is the amazing Mother Ship for Art-A-Whirl, but if you want a more digestible amount of art and a more manageable crowd come to the Solar Arts first. 2nd floor has about 20 working studios with fine art, jewelry, and fantastic pottery in our “old studio”.  3rd floor has Chowgirls Lounge with craft cocktails, Chowgirls Killer Catering local-and-organic twist on the retro TV dinner, and the MN Sculptors Society.
Indeed will have a huge line up of outdoor music and food.

More information here about the artist in the building and also on Indeed Breweries website will give you the music lineup:

You can’t make it to Art-A-Whirl or the crowds aren’t your thing, we are always open on First Thursday or we can meet most evenings with a little planning.

Just look for the giant TRex! by the door.

James, Marcy, and Leo
