When viewing art in a gallery or public space, the questions of “how” and “why” often arise in one’s thoughts. Discovering what went into an artwork as it was created is usually even more intriguing than our own interpretations. As part of Create Spokane Arts Month, more than a dozen local artists across many disciplines are opening their creative spaces to the public, letting us see where and how their ambitious projects come to life. Local artists including Garric Simonsen, Gay Waldman, Karen Mobley, Tom Quinn and Austin Stiegemeier also offer live art demonstrations and hands-on activities, as well as their one-of-a-kind pieces for sale.
