Greenwood Art Walk

May 13th, 2006 at 10:41 pm

Weekend 5 or 6 without the car; I lost track. Luckily we are now getting into spring and summer in Seattle, when all the neighborhoods have local events. This weekend was the Greenwood Art Walk, which was a juried show of artists set in local businesses all along Greenwood Avenue, the main drag of our little neighborhood.

DH and I walked over a bit of it this afternoon. The art was fun, but the best part was going into little businesses that you pass by in the car - the guitar store, the game store, the chocolatier, the coffeeshop, the antique store. The local wine shop had a free wine tasting. We bought two bottles - $18. I also bought a small painting of a Keith Haring-like bright cartoony sun for my office, which is in the basement - $25. Its the first piece that I bought from this sort of event. I figured I would get 25$ of enjoyment out of it.

A bit spendy, but it was our way to buy locally and support a local business if we buy at all.

    I have a sketch I bought at the Greenwood sale years ago too. I have definately got my moneys worth of enjoyment from it. Still have it hanging in my bathroom!

    I used to work in Greenwood, so spent plenty of time poking around the neighborhood.

    Bathroom, eh? I have a couple of yard sale finds in mine.

    Well, there's the Car Show in a few weeks and then the neighborhood Seafair parade a few weeks more, if you wanted to see the changes. I've lived in Greenwood for 6 years - still the magnet for antique stores, but the place changes year by year!
