Downtown's First Friday (Sept. 7)
Art walks are more often about people watching and shenanigans and less about the actual art. We're here to guide you through both. Presenting our very own Field Guide -- an evolving guide to art walks around town.
From time to time, we'll introduce some of our favorite spots and dish out some insider information. If you have any tips or tricks, share 'em in the comments section.

"Margin of Error" @ Tilt Gallery
photo by Christine Weller
September brings the work of photographer Christine Weller, whose latest work is a visual collection of her late mother's possessions. The ASU graduate creates still life portraits of these objects to reveal importance, relationship, and narrative that explores the relationships we have with our mothers -- what Wells calls " the foundation of all subsequent relationships throughout our lives."
Weller's work will be on view through September's Third Friday, September 21. Tilt Gallery, on the southeast corner of Filmore and 10th Avenue, is open on First and Third Fridays from 6 to 9 p.m. and on Saturdays from 1 to 5 p.m..

This August marked the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, a disaster that forever changed the face of New Orleans, and inspired local poet Cynthia Hogue and photographer Rebecca Ross to collaborate and produce When the Water Came, a collection of interview-poems conducted by Hogue and portraits made by Ross. Through September 16, Ross and Hogue will showcase their portraits, photographs, and poems from victims of Hurricane Katrina during a time when news is focusing on the effects of another hurricane -- Isaac.
