March 5 Westside Art Openings

If you have time this afternoon, there is a curious artist, architect, industrial and clothing designer, Eugene Tsui. It is very 70's style and his work spans the US and China. He does have some wild ideas about zoomorphic and solar clothing. He is giving a clothing design workshop this afternoon. Details at 5:30PM-7. Free

For your guided tour of art this evening consider...

Start at Stumptown Coffee downtown for a crochet show. It is not exactly knitting graffitti, but more figurative work. Jo Hamilton started on this path with a bet by Le Pigeon coworkers to crochet their portraits. The show includes a knitted cityscape too! At Stumptown 128 SW 3rd

Then around the corner to Fontanelle. Ryan Jacob Smith curates a show of music cover illustrations by friends, Long Live the Ephemeral. At Fonatanelle 205 SW Pine

At the DeSoto building there are plenty of things to see such as the Nines Gallery in Blue Sky, this month Christine Clark fills the space with wire sculpture. A special treat is the installation by Mandy Greer at the PNCA Museum of Contemporary Craft. The Desoto building is bounded by Park, Davis and NW Broadway.

The Everett Lofts are always a great entertainment value. They are bounded by NW Broadway, Everett, 6th and Flanders.

Then back to Valentines for Soft Currency by Tamar Monhait and Nate Preston. DJ's accompanying your viewing pleasure until late. At Valentines 232 SW Ankeny
