Downtown Phoenix's Third Friday and Art Detour combined make a weekend full of local artwork.
The 24-year-old event, officially organized by Artlink, will take over galleries and studios on Grand Avenue, Roosevelt Row, 16th Street (and a few in between).
Here's a peek at our Field Guide for Art Detour this weekend ...
Our seven Friday and Detour must-sees after the jump ...
7. Namingha Family: Landscape, Form and Light @ Berlin Gallery
Dan Namingha and his two sons Arlo and Michael work in very different media, but under similar influence. Dan has won international acclaim for his painting and sculpture, Arlo is a jewelry designer and sculptor, and Michael works with digital inkjet images printed on canvas and paper. All three will showcase their work this weekend (and throughout the month) at the Berlin Gallery at the Heard Museum. More info here.
4. Apacheria @ Por Vida
Douglas Miles has spent most of his life on the vastly rural San Carlos reservation, 100 miles northeast of Phoenix. And he's spent the last 25 years creating artwork about the "rez life" while celebrating its culture. The 48-year-old's oeuvre crosses into multiple mediums, ranging from his cartoon-like ink sketches on paper and canvas to the decorated decks of Apache Skateboards, the company he helped launch in 2002. More info here.
3.Four-Fifths Farmer @ First Studio
1. 6x6 and a Group Show @ Eye Lounge
