Remember the City Art Art Walk Awards and After Parties that I hosted last night year? They're back but with some great new improvements! I couldn't host them this year (trying to focus on making my own art in 2011) so that allowed for lots of revamping. Last year, we focused on Pioneer Square (with the occasional trip up to Capitol Hill) since the majority of galleries, studios and art spaces were located there.

This year, City Arts Magazine really wanted to make this city-wide art award and so, "Together with our 2011 partners, the Art Walk Consortium, businesses and galleries that participate in neighborhood art walks can nominate a favorite piece of art for each month." Each quarter, 6 finalists will be selected from these nominations. Spring's final six have been selected and the party is happening April 28th at FRED WILDLIFE REFUGE. There will be free Blue Moon Beer so you have to have RSVP ( with subject: Art Walk). Due to liquor laws, they have to be real strict about this and since I'm no longer affiliated, you can't text me the night of to come outside and get you in, so don't forget the RSVP part.

Congrats to finalists Kate Protage, Sarah Loertscher, Carla G, Marty Gordon, Greg Boudreau and Jesse Higman! Come decide who will win $1,000! More details here!
