This weekend is the 12th Annual Eastside Culture Crawl! I checked out four of the buildings last night with probably 150 or more artists’s studios in total.. it was insane! For those of you who were at SWARM, its a similar idea, but on way a bigger scale and you get to see the artists in their own environment which is awesome. Today and tomorrow all the studios are open from 11am to 6pm or so. Check out the website for a list of studios participating, print out the map and GO!
One of the most impressive things I saw was the work of sculptor/artist Jamie Salmon from Avatar Sculpture Works. Go check out his work — it is incredible!
This sculpture is so realistic that is it almost scary, he has every detail perfect even down to the freckles, the redness around the nose, the nipples.. you name it! If you on the crawl make sure to check it out for yourself in the Mergatroid Building.
