If you're in or near the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota the first weekend of November, consider visiting Art Attack, an annual open studio and gallery crawl at the Northrup King Building in the heart of the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District. The weekend-long event features over 200 artists working in painting and drawing, sculpture, photography, architecture, custom furniture, fiber arts, metal, ceramics, glass, hand-crafted and custom jewelry, mixed media, mosaics, textiles, and more. Art Attack is an exciting opportunity to gain admission to private studios and to buy original art direct from local, nationally and internationally known artists. This 12th anniversary will feature live music, special exhibits in the gallery and on the green space and a chance to win $500 in Art Bucks which can be redeemed for art of your choice. The Northrup King Building is at 1500 Jackson St., N.E., Minneapolis. You'll find directions and more information at NorthrupKingBuilding.com. And if you come, stop in and see me and my amazing studio mates in Studio 343. I'd love to meet you!
