MARMOT ART SPACE PRESENTS
Good news! We’ll have a new show and a new artist for October! However, no First Friday celebration this month. Melissa Cole will be the featured artist for October. It’s been 18 months since we’ve featured her and it’s exciting to have her back. She’s one of the most popular and beloved artists on our region. Interested in picking up a piece? We’re showing by appointment only this month, so if you’re interested in adding to your collection, just text us at (509) 270-5804 and we’ll set something up. Thanks! Be safe.
These are challenging times, especially for those of us who earn our money when we put on events for the community. The vast majority of our income comes from our First Friday visitors. 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!
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, and Jim Dhillon.
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.
