‘Something for everyone’ – Porch-Art-Palooza returns with almost 40 artists, 30 arcades | Local

For five hours on Sunday, the historic neighborhoods south of the Capitol will become a vast open-air art gallery.

Nearly 40 artists will display and sell their works, including paintings, prints, ceramics, carpets and handmade paper, on 30 verandas during the second edition of the Porch-Art-Palooza.

And much of it will be reasonably priced.

“Most people will have things in the price range of $ 5, $ 10, $ 20 and beyond,” said Peggy Gomez of Tugboat Gallery, who is hosting the event. “I think people will do a good job of having something for everyone: the little ones and the big ones.”

Porch-Art-Palooza began in 2015 as the Lincoln Bicycle Art Tour, which included art and artists throughout the city. But it never flourished, so when forced to take a COVID break in 2020, Gomez and others took the opportunity as an opportunity to make changes.

40 artists, 34 arcades, three districts: the Sunday Portico-Art-Palooza to connect Lincoln artists, art lovers

They reduced its footprint, limiting the event to the Near South, Everett and South Salt Creek neighborhoods. And they’ve eliminated the emphasis on cycling.

Last year, the rebranded event attracted 200 to 300 people by bike, on foot or by car.

At one point, artist Toan Vuong was greeting 20 to 30 people per hour on his porch near 17th and A.

“It was a great success; a lot of people were out that day, ”she said. “And I think a lot of people who were selling stuff made a lot of sales that day.”

Vuong made about $ 300 that day, and on Sunday he will return to his porch showing his drawings, woodblocks, lithographs and pottery to new potential clients.

And also teaching them. This year’s event features three interactive arcades, where attendees can print a block of linoleum, make a cyanotype, or help Vuong make a portrait using a rubber stamp.

The college art instructor plans to set his prices between $ 10 and $ 50, to make his pieces affordable. Porch-Art-Palooza attendees are people who appreciate art and want to support artists, he said, even though they may not have the means to shop in the galleries.

“So I think it’s a really good idea: to sell little things that come into people’s homes that are somehow integrated into their lives.”
