Art: Northside International Airport Second Saturday: Doug Korfhagen

 The Northside International Airport’s “most unique miniature art gallery” (actually a converted bathroom) also shares space with a vintage clothing store, a bike shop, makeup studio and a taqueria. While that may seem random (it is), the alliance also allows a group of people who might not otherwise be able to afford a live storefront — something that’s become almost redundant in the age of eBay and Etsy.

For the NIA’s upcoming Second Saturday exhibition, multimedia artist Doug Korfhagen will exhibit some very Northside-centric artwork, featuring his portraits of local characters and his distinctive take on area buildings. Korfhagen photographs, illustrates and often woodburns his subjects — many are people he sees on the street while out skateboarding — and his particular brand of visual language is both readily identifiable as well as curiously idiosyncratic. Go see what it all looks like installed around urinals. 6-10 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9. Northside International Airport, 4029 Hamilton Ave., Northside.
