The Balboa Island Artwalk is the premier showcase for talented local artists and marks the start of the Island's summer season. Celebrating its seventeenth anniversary, the Artwalk will take place on Sunday, May 15th, from 9am to 5pm along the South Bayfront Promenade of Balboa Island. Admission is free.
This fine art show features more than 90 artists exhibiting paintings, fine jewelry, blown glass, sculpture, and photography. Spectators will enjoy live music throughout the day on four stages along the walk. Performing musicians include the Retros, Don Ross Duo, Garry Gould, Rick Sherman and Alan Remington, Jim Roberts, and Grant Peakcock. Limited-edition Artwalk posters and t-shirts will be available at Sapphire & South Bayfront. Local restaurants will be open to serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The OC Cruiser will be providing free shuttle service.
Last night was the Opening of the Artists of Colorado Inaugural Juried Show held at Brushstrokes Gallery in Denver. It was a great event. The weather was beautiful, which helped bring people to the First Friday Gallery Walk for the four galleries in this neighborhood. It was great to see artists that I've met before, but who live in different parts of Colorado, as well as to meet in person artists with whom I've been blogging but never met. Here I am with Joanne Hanson, Jane Hunt, and Saundra Lane Galloway.
