Art on the Ave. ‘Art’: Everyone’s favorite neighbor is an art market returning by popular demand! Last year’s event pulled in 600-800 people the second year of the market. The market is part of Slatterly’s 5th Annual Saturdays at Slatterly Bloom Day which is being held Saturday May 19, 2012 from 10:00am – 4:00pm on the nine hundred block of 5th Ave SE (one block west of Redeemer Lutheran Church). The event is being put on by the Slatterly Park Downtown Neighborhood Association.
The market showcases local artisans, with a mix of painters, glass blowers, metal workers, and jewelers, and will be much like the Thursdays on First market downtown on a smaller scale, with a goal to showcase local artwork, and refine that each year with this annual event. There will also be folk artists who will perform from 11:00 – 3:00pm, along with the huge chalk street mural like last year that was a huge success! Almost all of the 25 market vendors last year asked to come back again this year, which is a testament to the events success! It is a great event to kick off the 2012 Summer prior to Thursdays on First as well. You’ll love the personal attention our volunteers give the vendors, from free coffee during market setup, to assistance with canopy setup if required. Food will also be available for purchase at the Bloom Café.
