That’s right folks, it’s about that time again  for ‘First Thrusday’ at the Northrup King Building!

Located in Northeast Minneapolis, this building houses around 200 local artists of all mediums; sculptors, jewelry makers, painters, ceramic artists, textile artists and more.

Be sure to stop over at 1500 Jackson Street NE between 5 – 9pm this Thursday, September 2nd, to check out the local art scene; also, while you’re there, don’t forget to grab a wooden nickel which is good for a free drink at the Red Stag Supper Club.

Artist: Jan Bilek. "Teal Striped Bottle"

The Red Stag has happy hour on Thursday from 3pm – close and music at 10pm; also this Thursday, see the band Pennyroyal play at 10pm.

Stop into studio 366 to see abstract painter, Jack Dale. Holly and I love his use of movement and color. Also, in studio 337 is Jan Bilek, a talented ceramic artist.

The building is home to a very eclectic mix of artists; there are painters, sculptors, glass blowers, jewelry makers and everything in between!

This Thursday they are serving Rootbeer Floats so bring the kids, or if you’re on a date night, pick up a wooden nickel good for a free drink at the Red Stag Supper Club (509 1st Ave NE).
