The Newton Booth Neighborhoods Association is a combination of three neighborhoods: Poverty Ridge (19th to 24th and R to W), Newton Booth (24th to 29th and R to W) and Alhambra Triangle (30th to 34th and again, R to W). The Newton Booth Neighborhoods Association (NBNA) plans a number of events, but this is the first Art Walk they've put together, "We are organizing this event to get people to discover that we have a great neighborhood and lots of creative people who live here," said NBNA Secretary Alex Ives.
The Art Walk will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will be a walking tour of the whole neighborhood (though participants are welcome to bike or drive if they choose). Artists Gina Rossi and Kristen Hoard, who create metal sculptures, will be on the tour and have their studios open. At the far end of the tour is Shimo Gallery, at 28th and U; the current show at Shimo features Gregory Kondos. Miriam Estrada, a fine artist in oils who shows at various places in California, will be showing her work at the apartment building she manages on T Street. Tim and Lynda Lazer are nationally-known glass artists and they will be sharing space for this event in the old Chemical House fire station on 22nd Street with Dennis and Anna Kato, who collect Mexican folk art. Some other venues may be added on the day of the event.
And of course, Bows and Arrows is one of the stops on the Art Walk and will have just put up their October art show: "Get Well Soon", featuring new art by Liv Moe and Elisabeth Higgins O'Connor. Bows will be the only location on the art walk that serves food.
Art Walk "Passports" will be available on the day of the event at Castle Dab, a historic home at the 2014 23rd Street, which will feature various art works by members of the Morning Coffee Collective. If participants get their passports stamped at all the official locations, they will be entered into a drawing for a prize.
We hope to see you at Bows for Unexpected Art!
