Events, Locally Made

Coming Out of the Woodwork

’Tis the season – and it starts Tonight! – to shop with local artisans

November 13, 2009


Right around this time of year, galleries, shops, and studios start staging lots more openings, exhibits, and sales. Why? Because working artists need work. Sales, that is. And you need gifts, locally made ones. And you want to take advantage of the opportunities to get to know the minds that create, imagine, craft, and dream in your city.

So here we go. Tonight, at Fancy, a show curated by shop owner/artist Sally Brock and artist Erich Ginder called Scrap gives you the opportunity to examine what those minds had to say about a piece of scrap lumber.

Does it get more Northwest than that?

Artists like Ladies and Gentlemen, Iacoli & McAllister, who we’ve featured here before and Katie Bailey, also a veteran of this blog, will show where they took their piece of leftover wood.

But you’ll be doing double duty, so put down that appetizer. As you check out the show, you’ll also want to check out the artisan jewelry, accessories, and whatnots offered at Fancy. Because you need gifts, locally made ones. And let’s remember: Fancy was peddling local art before peddling local art was, like, a thing.

The show opens tonight with a catered party and artist reception. You’ll want to be there between 6 and 9p.m.

There will be more posts about more shows and opportunities to shop and support as the season (the um, holiday season, not the monsoon season, ahem) continues.
