Continuing up the Ave, I duck into Moksha, a retail clothing space that recently converted the entire rear third of their store into an art space. They call it the Geddis Gallery, and this month they're featuring Larry and Kristina Cyr, a local duo specialising in book design, illustration, murals, stencil, and wheat pastes. Their work is bold and graphic, and is a colourful complement to Moksha's nouveau bohemian vibe.

Last, but certainly not least on my art walk list this eve (it's usually the main reason I come to the U District), is Gargoyles Statuary. Gayle, the proprietor and art walk coordinator extraordinaire, always puts on fantastic exhibits, and tonight is no exception! Gargoyles is featuring "Spirits of Earth & Ether" the paintings of Jessica Geiger and the sculptures of K Amarak Waters, a collection of mystical creatures that hover on the cusp between twilight and starlight, this world and the next.

Be sure to come back next month for the U District Street Fair! All of the art spaces, and most of the retail joints will be turning out for an epic shindig! Support your local art scene!
