The 2016 Nevada City First Friday Art Walk season kicked off last night. While the Boardwalk on Commercial Street didn’t have any live music this month, it was nice to see some of the downtown shops stay open late and welcome locals and visitors to stop in. To learn more about the event, follow their Facebook page. For photos from previous years check out the blog archives (here, here, here and here for some of my favorites). I love that our community continually opens its doors and celebrates the arts. It was amazing to watch Alison Kenyon work her body painting magic in Neva Co Artisan Boutique. Thanks Cathy Theobald and Lenkaland Photography for sharing some of your photos from last night. While I didn’t make it to all the stops, photographs include: Kitkitdizzi, J.J. Jackson’s, The Earth Store, LeeAnn Brook Fine Art Gallery, Nevada City Winery, Foxhound Espresso, Mama Madrone’s and Neva Co Artisans Boutique. The First Friday Art Walks will continue June 3rd, July 1st and August 5th this year.
