MARMOT ART SPACE PRESENTS
GOOD NEWS / BAD NEWS
Friends, the bad news is that we’re unable to invite you into the space to gather and celebrate this First Friday. The good news is that we will have a new show up. If you’re going for a nice walk then feel free to stop by – you can see the exhibition from outside. When you fall in love with a piece just text us and we’ll call you back and it’ll be yours.
These are challenging times, especially for those of us who earn our money when we put on events for the community. If you are one of the lucky few who hasn’t been hugely affected by our current situation then please consider investing in the gallery and it’s artists today by purchasing a piece of art. Thank you! Really appreciated!
WHO: Boy are you in for a treat! These Munns sculptures are out of this world! Created by a Regional Renaissance Man if there ever was one, professor Munns taught ancient history, anthropology, art history, drawing and French at Walla Walla C.C., Whitman College, and UC Davis.
MORE: J. Frank Munns earned his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. In San Francisco he was exposed to some of the most important artists of the 20th Century. There he also created cutting edge art for decades. His work was featured locally at the the WSU Museum of Art.
WHAT ELSE: We’ll also show work from Legendary Painter Alfredo Arreguin (who has work in The Smithsonian), Professor Emeritus Ruben Trejo (who also has work in the Smithsonian), local legend Ric Gendron, Melissa Cole, Bend artist Shelli Walters, professors Gordon Wilson, Rob Fifield, and Rob McKirdie, Michael Dinning, Karen Mobley, and Jim Dhillon.
WHEN: Friday, April 3rd, 3-8pm.
WHERE: First Friday in Kendall Yards happens throughout the Kendall Yards Business District, but has always been centered at Marmot Art Space (1202 Summit Pkwy, in Adams Alley, right across the alley from Craftsman Cellars and 3Ninjas).
WHY ATTEND: It’s another amazing art party in Kendall Yards! This is the best night of each month, a great opportunity to get out of the house and visit with your neighbors in Spokane’s most exciting neighborhood. Come for the art, stay for the food and drink! Or vice versa. You choose – either way you’ll have a great time!
WHY ELSE: 3Ninjas opened recently– and they’re right across the alley from us! You loved them for years as a food truck at our Kendall Yards Night Market. Now you can see them all four seasons! Don’t forget that Umi Kitchen & Sushi Bar opened awhile back – to rave reviews. Tonight’s a great night to try it out. Maryhill Winery is one of our newer neighbors– 5,000 sq. ft. of wine, along with a beautiful view of the Spokane River Gorge. Great excuse to visit them. Never been to Boutique Bleu, our new women’s clothing boutique? Friday is a great day for that! Core Pilates and William Grant Gallery & Framing all host artists as well. Why not have a glass of wine at Craftsman Cellars while you check out their artist? Of course, Brainfreeze Ice Creamery, Central Food, Veraci Pizza, Wandering Table, Nectar Wine & Beer, will all be happy to see you, too!
MORE: Veraci Pizza, on the house!
MORE: Kids are always welcome!
FUTURE ARTISTS: Marmot Art Space hosts incredible local, regional, national, and international artists. The majority are mid career artists – highly-successful, full time professional artists. Occasionally we find a way to slide in an emerging artist. Excited to see you First Friday!
We’ve been working for over five years to turn Kendall Yards into an arts destination. Marmot will always be at the center and, as the only space in Kendall Yards dedicated completely to the visual arts, we’ll always focus on the biggest artists around, but we’re excited to continue to promote all the great things happening on First Fridays in Kendall Yards.
