Olympia Arts Walk; April 24th & 25th

Tonight downtown Olympia, Washington, celebrates the arts in our community at the 38th annual spring Arts Walk. For artists, art lovers and the art curious, this event is a wonderful opportunity to embrace the arts in all forms! Maps with listings of venues and artists are available at participating locations. The Luminary Procession starts at 9:30pm on Friday night.

Saturday is the 15th annual incredible Procession of the Species Celebration beginning at 4:30PM. Last year's was an entrancing kaleidoscope of brilliant colors, delighted by 27,000 smiles beaming together. It is a parade not to be missed! Beginning at 3:30pm, 7,000 pieces of colorful street chalk will be handed out along the entire Procession of the Species route for people to draw the art of one's individual spirit in the streets.

In addition, at 2:30pm, featured Arts Walk artist, Heather Taylor, will be on hand to lead the creation of a "Hold the Earth Street Mandala." A beautiful street mandala large enough to fill the intersection at Legion and Capitol Way! Heather will need help to fill all of the colors in...chalk will be provided!

I will be showing my watercolor paintings at the Tea Lady which is on the corner of 5th and Washington in downtown Olympia. I will be there on Saturday and a couple of hours early Friday evening. Along with watercolor paintings, tiles, cards, and prints will be available for purchase. The show will be on display for a couple of weeks.
