Artists to gather

With more than 30 artists, and luckily some decent weather, organizers of the 12th Annual Art Walk expect to draw a crowd this Saturday in downtown Craig.

"Last year I think there were 200 or 300 people there," said Carol Jacobson, owner of Downtown Books, who's handling publicity for the event. "But, typically it's dang cold. We're having some unseasonable weather, and we have so much music this year that I think we'll draw people out.

"I would think we'll have at least that (this year)."

The Downtown Business Association is sponsoring the event, which includes artist displays and musical performances at 17 downtown businesses.

Also taking place during Art Walk will be "Lost Arts of the West," a presentation on horsehair hitching and braiding and leather braiding, musical performances by Cedar Mountain Strings, Yampa Valley Brass and guitar duo Jim Simpson and Jim Voorhies at the Museum of Northwest Colorado.

A fundraiser for the Color--ado Northwestern Community College will take place inside the museum's basement.

This year mark's the first for the Taste of Chocolate Walk. Taste of Chocolate costs $10 per ticket and allows visitors to sample chocolate creations and vote on their favorite.

Tickets are available at the Kitchen Shop and voting takes place at Under the Aspen Tree, 13 W. Victory Way.
