Although it looked like rain, I convinced myself to leave my umbrella in the car, and so of course it ended up raining - sometimes just a drizzle and sometimes somewhat intense, but in the end it was ok. I'm not sure how much the weather kept people away or just from visiting some of the artists, but there were some challenges as a result like unexpected rivers and overly crowed spaces. We spent over 4 hours wandering around and looking at all sorts of art. I have no idea how many studios we visited, but I know we missed many of them, including some that closed early. You really could spend the entire day there and still probably not see everything. The art covered all sorts of mediums from paintings, photography, prints, digital art, sculpture, ceramics, fabric, dance, assemblage, paper, metal. I really enjoyed some of the art and while some of it also wasn't really my style, I also found it interesting to explore the space (and sometimes ended up lost/going in circles) and enjoy the buildings and experience itself.
The Brewery artwalk still goes on tomorrow, April 26 as well. I would definitely recommend visiting if you're ever around when one happens!
a really awesome kitchen in 212 (Dave Lefner)!
JESUS wall in one of the spaces. This whole living room was rather spacious with old decadent looking furniture decorating the space and a giant red wall.
"free window baby with purchase"
Sandman Creations, have taken such things to Burning Man.....
This space was a bit of a shock to walk into.... I guess this climbing area (Stronghold Climbing Gym) opened up relatively recently. It's huge and extends much further than what these photos shows and has different sorts of "land" features available...
Some of the other artists I enjoyed that I don't have any photos from include:
Roland Reiss (paintings)
Nicole Fournier (encaustic/photography)
James Payne (a photographic exhibit of ppl in their homes over the last 40 years)
Francine Lecoultre (textile based arts)
