Nevada City First Friday Art Walk is just one of the many reasons I love our cute little town. Any occasion that brings folks together to celebrate the arts is a plus in my books. I also love that the focus of the event is to get locals and visitors into the shops, so regardless of whether you’re shopping/eating/drinking during Art Walk, it’s a great reminder to think local first. Last night’s event included Treats sponsored Kidz Alley with the Outside Inn’s Chalk It Up, plus cairn building, music by Neo, crown building, Giant Jenga and more. I wasn’t able to capture everything, but this blog post includes photos from LeeAnn Brook’s reception at Nevada City Winery, Lord Von Schmidt at The Parlour at Neva Co, Kitkitdizzi, Trio Jazz at the DANK closing reception, Rachel Rose Teferet at HAALo, Sprithouse Import Gallery, Tommy Daly and the Velvet Revolution, The Crux on the Nevada City Boardwalk, Phil Brown and Gary Upton at Mowen Solinsky Gallery and 888 artist reception at Szabo Vinyeards Tasting Room. See you next month, mark you calendars for Friday, September 5th, 5-9pm.
