Buzz Bin 

by Inlander Staff


Being Neighborly -- In case the occasional cop cars, stolen autos and number of halfway houses weren't indication enough, now we have a new way of discovering "yep, our neighborhood could use some help." In this case, the bulky presence of an official orange and white HomeTeam With Troy McClain van. Not one but several Inlanderites had their parking spots robbed by his Troyness, who was in town filming an upcoming episode of HomeTeam on the lower South Hill. Along with Troy, film crews, interior decorators and professional shoppers converged on the subject of the show, a slightly shabby house that turned into a pretty little starter home, right before our very eyes. No word yet on when the show airs. We'll keep you posted.





Save the Date -- You know something about the arts scene must be working when area artists need to rearrange their open studio schedules in order to accommodate one another. Such is the case with watercolor-wielding Don Clegg, who moved his open house up a few weeks because "the first week of December is just too full."


Clegg is the author of Celebrating the Seasons in Watercolor and an accomplished still life artist. No mortal plum, fig or apple can hold a candle to the ones Clegg paints. To see for yourself, visit his studio at 1527 W. 13th Ave., Friday and Saturday from 11 am-8 pm and on Sunday from noon-6 pm.





First the Bad News -- The entire Buzz Bin floor of The Inlander was thrown into chaos Thursday when we got wind that one of our favorite venues -- Studio 901 in the Garland District -- was going to close its doors at the end of December.


Studio 901, for those of you who haven't been there yet, is part art gallery, part record store and part newsstand, all housed in a long narrow space. Where else could a person go to check out art by emerging local artists and walk away with the new issue of Bust, a Postal Service CD and a handmade greeting card?


Just as we were getting into a serious funk, we made contact with Studio 901's owners Jessi Peck and Robert Seale, who told us that while the gallery is having a hard time, they might try to hang on a while longer or look for a new place downtown. In the meantime, go check out their current show, "politically motivated" screen prints by Kathleen Delaney Carr.


We've said it before and we'll say it again, Spokane: "Support these places or they're gone."
