Coming up this weekend - the SE Area Art Walk

For the fourth year in a row, I will be kicking off the season by participating in the SE Area Art Walk, a free self-guided tour of studios, galleries, host homes and businesses in Southeast Portland.

I will be hosted this year at Mirador, a very cool store full of items for kitchen, home, and health, plus lots of groovy gift items, located at 2106 SE Division.

The event is this weekend - Saturday and Sunday, March 1 and 2, from 10 am - 5 pm both days.

You can download maps to help plan your visits to the 52 locations that will be open and displaying art. I am #16 on the map. Trillium Artisans is also participating - they are #25 on the map. Sounds like a lot of walking? Never fear - this year, Eco Shuttle will be offering a shuttle service!

If you are in Portland, come out and enjoy this fun event and get inspired by the work of more than 90 local artists. I will have mandalas, coloring books, and a new line of painted record cuffs featuring more subtle, sophisticated designs. Mirador will also be a "chalk station" so come do some sidewalk chalk art with us!

Here's a picture from the 2006 Art Walk - that's me with my hosts, Rick and Cynthia (both awesome artists too):
