“Very nice paintings on First Friday”
Review of Alwun House

Alwun House
Ranked #124 of 231 things to do in Phoenix
Reviewed June 10, 2013

I just recently went to Alwun house on a First Friday in the evening. I got there early, so they were setting up the stage for music. I don't know how often they change their art, but this night there were very beautiful, large paintings on the walls. Nice. The art gallery part of the house is much smaller than I'd imagined, but well worth a visit. The receptionist wasn't a happy camper but she was polite. It looked like there was going to be a crowd later, with the bar, the stage and an area under the trees for sitting and talking. Parking was extremely limited. Maybe there is another area to park, in addition, but I didn't see it. How long a person could spend here probably varies a lot. Can't really say if they offer food or not or if there are bathroom facilities available.

Well worth the 45 min. for open minded adults, NOT FOR PRUDES OR CHILDREN. It's more like erotic than exotic art. Having said that, I found the place interesting, unique and refreshing. Nice to have a place where artistic expressions of this type have a display forum. Set in an older Victorian home, the ground floor and basement show painting, sculpture, photo and mutli-media mostly of nudes, some more tastefull than others. Very nice hosts charge only $5 admission and you get a glass of wine. They have purchased most of the block and intend to make a park. Shows on stage and full bar in the backyard weekends during the cooler months.

All sorts of art in one place. Get it? Alwun=All one.
Paintings, sculptures, photographs, music, lights. The art exhibit is open to the public during the day, but they have fun events in the evenings during their on season. These events are outdoors, which is why they do not have them during the summer.
