Art Walk returns today in downtown
Buy a bowl of chili and keep the bowl, learn to decorate cookies from a pro or just enjoy some music while shopping downtown Craig this evening at the 11th Annual Art Walk.
“There’s something for everyone” said Karen Brown, the Downtown Business As–sociation’s president.
The event, sponsored by the association, runs from 5 to 9 p.m.
Brown plans to be at the Community Budget Center, where visitors can listen to vocalists Stacey Mathers and Rhonda Walmer as they entertain Art Walk strollers.
From the north end of Yampa Avenue, where the students from Colorado Northwestern Community College will be serving up chili in decorative pottery bowls that diners keep, to the south end of Yampa Avenue, where the Natural Health Care Center will feature artist Jessie Snowden, “this year’s event will be better than ever,” Brown said.
The event will include displays off of Yampa Avenue, as well. Photographer Hazel Holdridge will display her work at McKey Chiropractic Center, 469 Breeze St. Fun and Games and Under the Aspen Tree on West Victory Way also are participating.
Carol Wilson, owner of Neo–lithics, said she’s excited about the 22 businesses that will participate in the Art Walk this year.
“Each stop will have one or two artists from photographers and painters to musicians at the museum,” she said. “People should allow at least an hour to walk, snack and enjoy downtown.”
This year, the First Christian Church youth group will provide free child care for shoppers attending the Art Walk. The church is at 960 West Victory Way.
Kandee Dilldine, owner of KS Kreations, has prepared 48, 7-inch cookies for those interested in learning decorating tips from a professional.
“For $3 you can experiment with red, pink and white frostings and a number of different tips for frosting cookies,” she said.
There also will be a display in the fire station featuring Mary Pat Dunn’s work and student art.
