Art at MichaelKate presents Block Party! Funk Zone Studio Artists Sampler, featuring more than 18 artists, either with studios in the Funk Zone or past involvement in the development of the FZ art scene. Curated by Jan Ziegler. MichaelKate has been in its current location since 1997 and has always been supportive of local artists. Past curator at MichaelKate, artist Brad Nack (who has work in the show), was instrumental in promoting art in the Funk Zone as the area began emerging six years ago.
MichaelKate Interiors is the only gallery in the Funk Zone with the wall space to accommodate so many of the neighborhood artists under one roof. This is a unique opportunity to view the works of this burgeoning arts community side-by-side in the same venue. Artists include: Michael Armour, Gregory Beeman, Liz Brady, Charlene Broudy, Erika Carter, Marlyn Daggett, Jeane Dentzel, Rick Doehring, Skye Gwilliam, Sol Hill, Philip Koplin, Barbara Leung Larson, Karen Lehrer, Dan Levin, Virginia McCracken, Brad Nack, Marcello Ricci, Jill Sattler and Dug Uyesaka.

Opening Reception date: September 16
