First Friday Art Walk returned to downtown Nevada City. This month the theme of the event was water with exhibits of beautiful artwork that represented water, fun water filled interactive kid friendly art activities and an art installation of “making waves” on Commercial Street and more. Did you make it to the DANK opening reception? The pop up gallery featuring work by Sheila Cameron, Moira McLaughlin, Roseanne Burke, Reinette Senum, Nancy Nelson, Joe Meade, Cynthia Levesque, Kathy Frey, Dylan McConnell, Celiene Adrianna on Spring Street is open Saturday mornings 9am-1pm and will return for the August First Friday Art Walk (mark your calendars now, Friday, August 1st 5-9pm). Thanks to all the fabulous folks who make the Art Walk happen, if you don’t know Cynthia, stop in to the Neva Co Artisan Boutique and say hello. I loved listening to Paige Anderson and The Fearless Kin rock it out on the Commercial Street Boardwalk, we can all say “we knew them when” when they hit the big time. Photos in this blog post spotlight a few of the exhibits including Dawn Blanchfield, Della Helywood at Nevada City Winery, Neo, Cheek Thrills Face Painting, Outside Inn’s Chalk it Up, Treats’ Kidz Alley, Maren Metke at Phoenix Rose, Elixart, The Earth Store, Kathryn Wronski at Gray Goose, Alison Kirishian at Kitktidizzi with Sierra Moonshine beer on tap, plus Betsy Lombard at J.J. Jackson’s. What was your favorite part about the evening? Please post a comment and share and support local arts and music and our fabulous little town.
