Oops. The previous version of this article stated the art walk as being on Sept 14. It is actually on the 21st, though it certainly doesn’t hurt to visit most of the venues early!
September’s art walk offerings are presenting a serious threat to your shoes, as you’re going to want to go the extra mile to hit all the listed locations. The Arts Center continues the absolutely wonderful Log-Cabin Medley (featuring notable locals Clay Lohmann, Julie Green, Kerry Skarbakka, and Anna Fidley), which I recommend as both a first and last stop. If you haven’t read up on it yet, check out http://www.corvallisadvocate.
Adding to the fun are some interesting painted works from Marnie Zoa at Voices, a painting exhibit at CEI Artworks by Justin Lodge, where he has created skyscapes by working with geometric patterns and color, and works from Rachel Urista at Cyrano’s. And of course, there is the must-see Totality show at Fairbanks. I know nobody really listens when someone says “must-see,” but if you were ever thinking of indulging in a little faith, now is the time.
As per usual there’s not enough space to dig into all the excellent things going on, so take the threat above seriously and catch it all.
For you newcomers, the Corvallis Arts Walk generally lasts from 4 until 8 p.m., but not all venues adhere to the standard. Be sure to grab a map from one of the following locations and plot your route ahead of time!
• CEI ArtWorks Gallery, 408 SW Monroe Avenue, Suite 110
• The Littlest Gallery, Glass Case at Starbucks, 4th Street at Madison
• Studio Beatrice, 230 NW 6th Street
• The Arts Center, 700 SW Madison Avenue
• Pops Art Studio, 425 SW Madison Avenue, Suite P1
