Alamosa ArtWalk '14
Thanks to everyone who volunteered, promoted, planned and participated in Alamosa's ArtWalk last Saturday, June 21st - a celebration of art, music and spoken word. There were painting demos, and displays of photography, pottery, fiber arts, and sculpture.
Special THANKS to painters from my class who came out; and kudos to those who were first time plein air painters.
We enjoyed a perfect June morning on Main Street, chatting it up with people from the community and other artists who came out to see what we were up to. ArtWalk is about seeing and being seen- promoting Alamosa and hopefully raising interest and awareness to ART - in our community.
ArtWALK participants carried Programs that they had stamped by Alamosa stores and restaurants and at the end of the day entered a drawing for a $200 art gift-certificate to spend toward ART. Yay!
As part of my ArtWalk day I have always gotten a program stamped in hope of winning the prize - but no luck yet. However, I was very gratified that the winner chose to purchase my painting "Sage and Snow" - bottom right in the photo above.
In the afternoon I painted a quick dog portrait of Magnolia - a dog friend of mine. All in all - a pretty good day.
