The Crawl was literally crawling with art lovers this year – young and old, seasoned and new. I found myself halfway between these extremes somewhere, walking up to 1000 Parker Street to check out the highest concentration of artists’ studios in the Crawl. There are a purported 141 studios in the Parker Street Studios Building and it took me over two hours to see them all – or rather, I should say, over two hours to see what I thought was all of them (I wasn’t counting!). At any given moment, it seemed you could go in at least three different directions – up a flight of stairs, through the back door of a studio into another hallway, and sometimes even through the door behind the bathrooms where a studio was tucked away. It was an absolute maze, and each new corner turned, presented a new artist and a new style. Some, I discovered, were connected through mutual friends, others I had actually met before and the majority were brand new faces and art styles to discover. Here are just a few that stood out for me this year:

Thanks for this! I was in 1000 Parker a week before the Crawl, but couldn’t get out for the event, so thanks to you now I feel that I’ve seen at least some of it. A wonderful place, wonderful art.
