"On Saturday, the area that once stood as a dingy plot of no man’s land will put out the welcome mat to revel in art, beer, music and friendship at The Flats fourth annual block party. From noon to 5 p.m. part of the gallery district, running east of Main Street on East First Avenue and Great Northern Way, will host art enthusiasts, collectors and the curious as the community celebrates itself.
This year for the nine-block long extravaganza, Chernoff Fine Art, Macaulay and Co. Fine Art, Monte Clark Gallery, Gallery 295, Gallery Jones, SOMA and Winsor Gallery will host free exhibits with works by local and internationally renowned artists. The day will come to a close with a concert at Red Truck Brewery.
Jennifer Winsor, of Winsor Gallery, spearheaded the area’s first block party. “First and foremost, it’s a celebration,” she said in her chic, stark white, high-ceilinged office. “The sharing element is crucial to how we exist here, it’s like you’re holding a party for all your friends.”
While the block party is about letting loose and having fun with your neighbours, for Winsor it’s also about raising awareness, something the founder of the gallery knows a little bit about. Coming into art with a business background, Winsor knew that owning an art gallery in an untried district wasn’t just about the art."
