ArtWalk features return of founding members Michael Johnson, Greg Spranger
July 31, 2012
The Downtown Issaquah Association’s ArtWalk returns from 5-9 p.m. Aug 3. The community is invited to enjoy art, music and more.
Dozens of artists will present their work along Front Street and in the shops. New this month, ArtWalk founding members Michael Johnson and Greg Spranger will display and sell their artistic creations at Pedestrian Park, at the southwest corner of Front Street and Sunset Way.
Johnson is an avid photographer with a strong collection of Issaquah images taken over the past 15 years. Spranger has taken his lifelong love of gathering antiques and collectibles and turned them into unique pieces of art.
If you go
Then there is the music. There will be dancing in the streets with tango lessons in Artist Alley. Four teen bands from Kaleidoscope School of Music — plus Issaquah-area band Dorian Blu — will perform 50 tunes in a free outdoor concert outside the library from 4:45-9:30 p.m. In addition, The Naked Feel Goods perform at the historic Shell Station and blues singer Kim Archer performs at the Train Depot.
Finally, don’t miss the stone exhibition at the historic Hailstone Feed Store.
To accommodate ArtWalk activities, Northwest Alder Place will be closed from First Place Northwest to Front Street from noon to 10 p.m.
A map of the stops along the ArtWalk will be available the day of the event.
