IMPORTANT ART WALK ANNOUNCEMENT
Beginning in March, the Phinney Neighborhood Association will take over coordinating the PhinneyWood Art Walk as part of its community programs.
The PNA has long been a partner to the art walk, providing fiscal and marketing support. As a PNA event, the art walk will have access to all of the PNA resources and expertise.
Moving the art walk to the PNA will mean some changes, however. PNA staff are tentatively planning to hold The BIG One sometime in September. A final date will be announced shortly. The monthly art walks, however, which since COVID have had only a few participating venues, will be paused indefinitely after the February event to allow PNA staff to work out the specifics of this transition and what it means to staff workloads.
Participating February Venues:
Art Walk activity for February. Limited number again this month because of COVID. Note: Most venues listed are participating in the monthly art walk set for February 11 from 6 – 9 pm. A few have art all month, In addition, Aide Memoire will be hosting a trunk show every second Saturday. Details below

Art Up and Chow Down Site
Featured Artist: Chris Jameson
I make collages, paintings, and sculptures that serve as distractions from the monotony
of everyday life. Embracing the nostalgia that comes with thumbing through an old book
or magazine, my collages hide alterations while simultaneously creating surrealistic
versions of the original photographs. I approach my paintings and sculptures in a similar
way. Working with familiar shapes and imagery, I abstract and compose them into
bubbly and dreamlike scenes. I find solace in meticulous work; it allows me to let go of
my own angst and focus on the task at hand.

Featured Artist: “The View from the Top” a Photo Exhibit by Jameson Schultz
“The draw for me is getting to these far-out places that few have witnessed and not only experience it all first hand, but then being able to bring back those moments as a photograph and reminder more powerful than just a memory. Capturing those precious seconds from my perspective in a way that can tell a story or provoke emotion is one of the greatest rewards I get from dragging my camera around, and when I throw myself out into those insanely beautiful places, my surroundings pretty much do all of the heavy lifting.” -via Jameson Schultz Photography site

Melted Porcelain, Malia Peoples
“As a Native Hawaiian growing up in the Pacific Northwest, I’m keenly aware of our need for light. I’m constantly exploring ways to subvert the excessively gray seasons by creating colorful, uplifting porcelain jewelry. Radiant, hand-painted gold details are added to each of my pieces to create a brilliant shine.”
Second Saturday Maker Trunk Show
Our Aide-mémoire shop hosts a local Artist or Maker every second Saturday of the month. Aran Galligan, Aide-mémoire’s founder, began the trunk show in fall of 2021 to celebrate local Makers and the independent spirit. As an extension of our shop values, the Trunk Show Series supports Makers and Artists in the LGBTQ, BIPOC, and female-business run communities.
Participation is free for the Artist, and they retain 100% of their trunk show sales..
