Art Walk Spring 2011

Thank you for coming out this weekend and supporting the local artist.  This was the sunniest Art Walk I can remember in years. 

The Store front in the white building was turned into a Phantom Gallery over the weekend with a handful of artist showing off their work.
The lineup was as follows;

HootCulture – Book Safes, Flask, and jewelry
Carrie Abbey-Franzen – Nature Photography and jewelry
Spindle's End- Handspun and knitted goods
Niki Bilodeau – Etched glass ware
Hallie Torrey – Original Watercolor Paintings
Rashel Inderbitzen – Decoupage Boxes for all occasions
LaurelsArt – Handmade clocks from upcycled Records and Original Printmaking
As far as I can tell everyone had a great time.
Front table with clock giveaway promotion.

My clocks on the new grid wall purchased recently from a closing scrap book store.

Some of my framed prints along with greeting cards and book marks

More prints
And more prints

Carries Photography and jewlery

These were the greatest easter item we had in our gallery.  I fell in love with them.

My camera battery started to die and I didn't get any great pics of HootCulture's wares but you can find them on Etsy
Spindle's End wool

I thought it was fabulous of her to bring her wheel.  It was such a learning experience.

Hallie's Water colors I had a hard time capturing.  You can find them on Etsy also.

Niki's etched Glass

Sold like hot cakes

The platter was a favorite

Hallie's table with her watercolor prints

Rashel and her boxes.  Everyone adored these keep sakes and she had great ideas to make personal boxes with stuff you would usually put in a scrap book.

I had a jar of mustaches left over from my wedding I've been trying to get rid of.  I took them to arts walk and charged a quarter apiece.  They flew out the door.  Vendors down the street said there was a flood of mustaches down the sidewalk!

This year I used the front window for display of everyones goods.  It was a great use of space.

These gals played for us and is was absolutely wonderful.  I invited them and their mother back for next arts walk, perhaps we can even set them up inside.  I never got their names :(

The craft table was a huge success.  We had children and adults of all ages participating.  The theme was “make a prayer flag with your wish for the earth”.  We had some great wishes and the pictures tell all.  I will leave the flags up in the store front window as long as the building manager lets me so make sure you stop by to check them out

Our prayer flag collection the community helped us build.

I have set this Gallery up for three years now.  Wow, I didn’t think I had been doing this gig for very long.  Every time I set this space up I add a little bit more lighting and color, and it shows.

The next Art Walk will be in Oct. I'll keep you guys posted.

  1. Thanks so much for sharing! As I haven't done many craft shows, I am always eager to see photos of the 'real deal'. :) It's so neat to see all the cool things people were selling. Good job putting it all together! :)
