At the HOP!

Hey Beautiful People!

Come join Art on Alberta this Saturday, May 17 for our biggest party of the year--Art Hop! This year we are featuring three artists in our quest to find Synergy on the street. The artists are Adrienne Cruz, Tripper Dungan, and Analee Fuentes. There will be over 150 art vendors, three music stages, sponsored by Siren Nation andGreat Magnet Recording Concerns , and a gospel stage down at the Terrell Brandon Barbershop at 12th Ave and Alberta. At 2:30 our beloved parade ensues, including March Fourth Marching Band, Tears of Joy Theater, a drum corps, a Pretty Dress Bike Entourage organized by Carye Bye, school bands from the Alberta neighborhood and more surprises. Art Hop runs all day from 11am to 6pm, and there's a free after hours shadow puppet show by Tripper Dungan at the Alleyway Cafe (2415 Alberta) at 9:30pm.

A big shout out to Combustible Media, without whom this year's Art Hop would not have been possible. (or half as cool!) Thanks also to collage and the Oregon Arts Commission for their generous sponsorship.

I'm even going to have some of my work available for sale from the Bunny with a Toolbelt line--I'm sharing a booth with friends which will be somewhere in the 27th Ave and Alberta block near Bink's. I made a posse of Love Monsters and will sell them for only $20 apiece! (Special Art Hop Price for this weekend only!) Get 'em while they last and you are guaranteed to bring love and happiness into your life.

Kicking off the event is a special fundraiser for Art on Alberta--Cork, the wine shop at 29th and Alberta (who also sells beer and amazing bulk olive oil) is having a 2nd anniversary wine tasting on Friday the 16th. The cost is $10 per person and all proceeds go directly to Art on Alberta and all the hard work we do to preserve this street as the only arts-identified neighborhood in Portland! The wine tasting is from 5-8pm. Please come and help support my favorite nonprofit organization!!!
