Another First Friday, another Fremont ArtWalk. Lots going on tonight, so be sure to give yourself lots of time, for there will be plenty of opportunity for new discoveries this evening.
Just some of the many interesting events you could find on your journey tonight:
- At the Fremont Abbey Arts Center: Playing off of the philosopher Walter Benjamin’s “dialectical image”, Craig van den Bosch’s current work “addresses the dynamics of biology vs. technology and asks whether there will be a harmony between the two as the gap closes.” But wait, it’s not just an exhibit, but an experience engaging several senses: the soundtrack to the evening’s art show will be provided by Diagram of Suburban Chaos and Logic Probe in the Abbey’s Café with VJ accompaniment by Lindell Alderman (video). “The combination of the ethereal artwork and the electronic and ambient music of the artists will provide a curious test for the senses and a Friday night not to missed.” Also: video from Karin Steven’s Dance Company who performed recently at the Abbey with music composed by van den Bosch.
- Over at Theo’s Chocolate (3400 Phinney Ave. N.): Music by Shawnmarie starting at 6, poetry by Landon Longhill at 7, music by Boyz 2 Dinosaurs at 8. Look for the Molly Moon’s ice cream truck outside the entry to Theo’s throughout the evening.
- An artist reception at Portage Bay Goods (706 N 34th St.) from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., where Anne Baumgartner displays in the old Capers building window as part of the “Expose yourself to Art in Fremont” Window Art Project. It’s part of an an ongoing series “aimed at repurposing vacant storefront space in Fremont for artistic expression in-between tenants.”
And here’s an event you might not see everyday: Emerald Sprints Roller Racing: “Beat The Racer” Night at 9 Million In Unmarked Bills (3507 Fremont Pl. N.). You don’t even have to hit the pavement in this one! Racers go on stationary bikes and compete in 400-meter heats in this free, all-ages Cascadia Crits event.
