February’s ‘2nd Thursday’ Capitol Hill Blitz art walk features a grand opening, some festive Valentine’s Day exhibits, local cartoonists and, yum, sugar cookies. CHS is a happy sponsor of the monthly walk so we hope you head out to enjoy it. Here are some of this month’s highlights:
NuBe Green Grand Opening
NuBe Green, a hyperlocal, sustainable, artist-supportive retail store will celebrate it’s grand opening during this week’s art walk. Sample some treats from neighbors Molly Moon’s and Oddfellows, shop for sweet Valentine’s gifts and meet some participating artists. 10% of all purchases will go to the Blitz Art Walk fund.
BFF: Friends of the Nib
This collaborative group of local cartoonists get together weekly at Cafe Racer to collaborate on different works. As a group, they have produced and exhibited work for three years, with shows usually based around a theme.
They plan to “throw open the doors to their secret machinations and reveal to you some sketches, drawings, prints and more from their own portfolios, including a special preview of original artwork from the upcoming “Friends of the Nib playing card set!”
BFF: Friends of the Nib will be on display at Vermillion Gallery, 1508 11th Ave.
Valentine Cookie Decorating
Stop by Babeland for “naughty sugar cookies” to frost, decorate and eat! They’ll also be showing off Jenny GG’s boudoir photos, if you’re interested.
Artist Janice Bobb uses maple leaves to express her vision.
See her work at Studio 229, at 229 Broadway Ave. E.
Head over to SpeckPrint during Blitz and receive 10% off screenprinted posters by Stephen Peck. The print “Cupid: Angel of Death” will be featured.
After the galleries close, head over to The Bus Stop for some ‘Penetration,’ the Blitz art walk after after party. Kaleidoscope audio and visuals by Dumb Eyes. Prism glasses will be provided. The kaleidoscope freak out starts at 9pm and goes to 2am.
