Iron Goat Brewing’s new tasting room on the west end of downtown at 1302 W. Second Ave. has become a new stop on the First Friday trail.
As the popular Spokane microbrewery is co-owned by artist Sheila Evans, the Goat’s participation in First Friday should be of little surprise. She anticipates the brewery being a regular on the First Friday tour.
The taproom is hosting a show this month called “Forager Oracle,” and it features acrylic paintings by Spokane’s Neicy Frey. If the paintings appear rather … fungal … you’re not wrong. These larger-than-life images depict mushrooms.
Frey’s paintings will be on display through the end of the month, with a reception from 5-8 p.m. Friday.
The former home of the Spokane Daily Chronicle at the corner of Sprague Avenue and Monroe Street is hosting a First Friday exhibit of historical artifacts surrounding the 1927-28 building.
The event, from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, will feature images of the original 1926 blueprints, newspaper articles, historical photographs and a film depicting the building’s construction. There will be narrated tours of the building, including the famous gargoyles that line the seventh floor patio – a spot rarely open to the public.
The event will be in the Chronicle Building’s first floor event room and the newly renovated Chronicle Courtyard.
The event is hosted by Centennial Real Estate, which is owned by Cowles Co., which also owns The Spokesman-Review.
Bonnie Griffith and her show “Seasons in Landscape” will be featured at Dodson’s Jewelers in May. The Montana-born artist paints in oils and pastels, and her images reflect the changing seasons.
This is the final First Friday show at Dodson’s until October. A reception is planned from 5-8 p.m. Friday. The store is located at 516 W. Riverside Ave.
