May 30 - June 30, 2018 Reception: June 01, 2018, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
in conjunction with First Friday Art Walk
June's featured artists, ceramicist Denise Krueger and Batik artist Shari Carlson share a love of the sea, wildlife and the inspiration they get from nature. Denise's clay forms evoke tide pools, seed pods, and natural forms and textures most of us overlook in our daily lives. Shari's large, bold batik paintings often bring us face-to-face with sea creatures, bugs and birds – up close and personal.
Friday, June 01, 2018, and the first Friday of each month we'll be open til 9:00 pm with snacks, beer and wine.
Join member and represented artists in the gallery, and visit our neighbors Wolff Gallery, Stark Street Studios, and True Measure Gallery on your Art Walk.
Join us Sunday, June 10th, 11:00 am - 2:00 pm for a casual artist talk with Sidestreet Arts member and represented artists!
We'll sip mimosas, nibble brunch time snacks and learn more about how our member artists do what they do. We'll have a special gift for the first dozen visitors.
The event is free (though you do have to be 21 or over to enjoy the adult beverages). Non-alcoholic refreshments will also be available.

Upcoming Show - Natural - Supernatural
Dawn Panttaja / Benz and Chang July 04 - 29, 2018.
Reception: July 06, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Our July show features ceramic sculpture by member artist Dawn Panttaja, and images by Benz and Chang.
Our June member Spotlight shines on Cathi Newlin.
Cathi works in clay, and pulls her inspiration from politics, animals and her snarky sense of humor.
Cathi says... "My art seems to be an infinite journey. When I stop and look at the road I've traveled so far, I can see that each of my works is just a breadcrumb I've left behind - not so much so I can find my way back, as to show where I've been, and where I still need to go.
Currently animals - both real and imagined - are my subject. From quick clay sketches just for the mud pie joy of it, to commentary on the interesting times we live in, they work for me."
Visit our website to learn more about Cathi, and then stop into the gallery to see her work up close and personal!
