Georgetown Art Walk & Forney launch
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under Fantagraphics Bookstore 17 Jan 2008 7:16 AM

GEORGETOWN MERCHANTS ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF MONTHLY SECOND SATURDAY GEORGETOWN ART ATTACK!

Seattle's colorful, industrial Georgetown neighborhood - home of the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery - has drawn a lot of recent attention as the last outpost of a true blue-collar Bohemian arts community. In an effort to showcase the many accomplished artists and creative enterprises based in the neighborhood, the Georgetown Merchants Association is pleased to launch the first Georgetown Second Saturday Art Attack. The first of these lively monthly artwalks will take place on Saturday, February 9, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM.

More than two dozen galleries, studios, nightclubs, boutiques, and cafes will participate in the inaugural event. The work of countless local artists in a variety of media will be presented. As the delicate social ecology of the historic Georgetown district faces challenges posed by gentrification, it is hoped that featuring Georgetown's delightful creative diversity will generate public sentiment favoring the preservation of this regional asset.

Among the many highlights of the Second Saturday Georgetown Art Attack:

The lively "Art Jam" at 9 Lb. Hammer where a dozen Georgetown artists create modern masterpieces live onstage to a pulsating urban sound mix; Open artists studios at the newly developed Equinox Studios, housing more than three dozen artists and craftsmen; Art exhibition and book launch party for cartoonist Ellen Forney's provocative new title "Lust" at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery; New works by the incomparable Rick Klu at Georgetown Tile Works; Open house celebration at the newly expanded Belle & Wissell studio gallery; Improvisational theater by Real Moment Players at Calamity Jane's; A sneak peek at soon-to-open Full Throttle Bottles; A multimedia installation about the Georgetown Super 8 Film Festival at Bolte Creative and an opening at  the rechristened MIX (formerly Christoff Gallery); Exotic shopping, diverse dining, thirst quenching fun and limitless entertainment in the charming and challenging Georgetown industrial arts quarter.

Most participating businesses cater to all ages clientele and admission is free.
