Art Walk 2011

"Aquamarine Never Makes Me Blue"
I've been busier than a bee preparing for Art Walk this weekend.
Oh, and not to mention class proposals (that have been and are due soon)
that have been buzzzzzing around in my head.
I will have more details on those soon...California & DC here I come =)
But, my main focus has been on an event I've been a part of for the last three years.
It is a grand event.
One that benefits local children.  
This pulls at my heart, 
as I was one of those children who could have benefited from the programs
now held in this small Texas town.
The ArtWalk, sponsored by Arts for Rural Texas, features over 60 artists, displaying their paintings, jewelry, photography, ceramics, sculpture, wood and glass art.
It is a free event for the public...with music, food, wine tasting
AND a Kid's Art Tent!
It will be held around the quaint Fayetteville historic square this Saturday, April 30th
from 10am to 5pm and Sunday, May 1st from 11am to 4pm.
More details can be found here.
I will have many pieces of fresh Spring jewelry for sale.
I do hope to see you there.
(Psst...I will be teaching this class in DC in September!)

Dreamy pieces, Diane. I truly love what you create. I am so glad that you are doing a benefit for children. That pulls at my heart strings, too. There are so many that need our help.

Diane, I hope Art Walk this past weekend went well...which I am sure that it did! Your Spring jewelry must have really sparkled on your table - catching they eye of everyone who walked by. It sounds like such a fun annual event and for a great cause. And I love the Kid's art tent idea! Love the little hints throughout your post.....DC can't wait for your visit! :-)

Hi Diane,

We're the twins that met you at one of the classes at Gilding the Lily. We are interested in coming up in Arizona sometime in August to take one of your classes. Please give us more info so we can make some arrangement to come up. We are so fortunate to have met such a talented and creative artist and excited to learn more new technique.
