As the snow melts (finally) it is a gentle reminder that the biggest event of the year, Art-A-Whirl is right around the corner. May 18,19 & 20th is when all of North East Minneapolis opens its studio doors to the public. Also, one of the biggest art crawls in America. This year we are showing our work along with 10 or more artist/makers in our building. Because our building is outside the "arts district" and up the hill on Johnson Street NE, it makes our space a bit unique, as we are out of the hustle and bustle of lower North East Mpls.
We will have the front door to our apartment open for you to enter the upstairs where our showcase apartment will have all the artist/makers work on display to give you an idea of how you can display pieces in your own home. Down stairs in our studio, we'll have spoon carving demonstrations and more selections of the artists works. Outside there will be axing demonstrations, and plenty of room in our back garden area for a bonfire. So if you like to keep your Art-A-Whirl weekend a bit more chill, this is the place to be.
We look forward to sharing our space with you.
