North Loop Art Walk Set For October 14th
Our neighborhood is well-known for restaurants, bars and shops. But to bring attention to one of our lesser-known features–our art galleries–Ellie Kingsbury has organized a self-guided North Loop Art Walk on Saturday, October 14th, 6-8pm.
“It’s kind of a U-shaped walking path that’s a total of about 1.5 miles,” said Kingsbury, an artist who has a showing now at Form + Content. “I’ll provide walking maps at each location.”
The North Loop galleries run the spectrum of business models. There’s the traditional gallery at Veronique Wantz where artworks from national and international artists are displayed. There are two galleries run cooperatively by groups of artists: Traffic Zone and Form + Content. TractorWorks is an office building with an active arts program while 801 Lofts and Tower Lofts are residential buildings with robust art collections. (Tower Lofts will not be able to participate in this event).
“The culture of art galleries is very important,” said Kingsbury, “so that would be a great thing for residents to know.”
Below is a description she provided of each gallery:
