Our featured artist is Megan Suarez who will be showing at the Market Barrell | Dar-Lin Vintage. Please stop by and say hi!
Some changes this year. Updated the flyer to add photos by each active participant and moved those members who are open but not showing artist to the "ARTwalk Friends" column, I hope this will help you decide where you want to visit and create new favorite locations.
I also decided to change the website. The slideshow on the home page is bigger and easier to see. I then decided to add a mini-slideshow to each group page featuring the art from that pages members. I also moved the ARTwalk Friends into a group on their respective pages under thier own heading
Group Soup Kiosk in Francis Square
Opening at First Friday Artwalk
Friday, February 5, 2016
5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Francis Park (corner of First and College)
Subterra Restaurant, in conjunction with various departments of George Fox University and its students, has funded the start of a community soup program to raise awareness of local food insecurity while celebrating the diversity of society through food and art.
Back in December of 2015 Subterra donated 25% of its gross proceeds generated during a lunch week as seed money to start a program to buy raw product for making hearty soups and housebaked breads. We were able to accumulate over $800!
Soup and salad will be served in Francis Square in downtown Newberg during First Friday Artwalks throughout the winter, commencing Friday, February 5. Students from George Fox have made beautiful ceramic bowls for the occasion and will help with the marketing of the program and assisting in serving the meals.
Meals will be given away at no cost, or on a Pay-What-You-Want model for those wishing to donate to the future of the program. Ceramic bowls will also be available for purchase.
We plan to be open for First Friday Artwalk for February 5, March 4 and April 1 of 2016. Looking into the future, we hope this program will start to fund itself, and continue to feed those in need while integrating society in an artistic venue.
