ARTifacts Emporium will feature Gabriele Wardeiner, Tutu Good and Oh Baby! Antiques. .  “Art should be serious fun” sort of sums up the way Gabriele Wardeiner approaches her encounters with pencils and brushes. Mostly self trained she just enjoys drawing, painting and trying new things on paper, board and even metal. She is also a certified “pack rat”, which comes in handy creating the hundreds of truly unique, special greeting  cards you see in her booth. Rounding up the offerings are some interesting antiques, “almost” antiques and 14 K gold and silver jewelry. «Read the rest of this article»

Designated handicapped parking remains an issue in the downtown district

 

ArtWalk. It’s a great event designed to bring people downtown not just a single showcase (Downtown Artist’s Cooperative) but to many of the shops and restaurants that have integrated art into their stores, creating a mix of gallery and merchandise. The warmth and atmosphere of a Main Street with old-fashioned hospitality and style. The ArtWalk’s usually include an artist’s reception with a variety of appetizers, punch, and wine tastings: the perfect accompaniment to art. Too bad I missed it.

Oh, I made it downtown. I’d planned to write about this event, take pictures of it.

But all the sloping curb cuts in the world won’t help if you can’t park your car due to the glaring absence of designated handicapped parking spaces. So through the window of the car I looked at the crowd gathered inside DAC, a bit wistfully I might add, and went back home. Sans art. Sans conversation that I would otherwise have enjoyed. Sans story and photos they might have appreciated. «Read the rest of this article»
