July Art Walk Brings Museum Quality Life to Colfax
As the hot, lazy days of July set in, the Colfax Art Walk brings Downtown Colfax to life on Friday, July 12, from 3 pm to 8 pm with a full line up of premier artists and master artisans unveiling their latest creations. This is the quality show you'd expect to see at a museum - and it's all free and kid-friendly along Main and Depot Streets in Colfax.
The Art Walk features a variety of painting styles, ranging from Plein Air to Impressionism to Realism. The show also exhibits hand-thrown pottery, original design jewelry, colored pencil drawings, and finely crafted wooden pieces of art. The July Art Walk presents a truly museum quality show.
Among the artists exhibiting for the first time in Colfax are animal painter Margot Comer at the Doggie Depot; the watercolor landscapes of Charlie Iveson at the Greek Bistro; the master artisan wooden crafts of Arnie Lund at Ammo Camo & Bait; the artistry of Phil Muscheid at Café Luna, and Impressionist paintings of Sandra DeLong at the Cider Tasting Room.
Making a return showing are Johanna Murazzo's drawings in the artist's lounge at Main St. Pizza and Connie Marson's original pottery and jewelry at Marson's, while one of Placer County's favorite artists and art teachers, Barbara Hoffman, is the featured painter at the Creative Corner and Co-op storefront at 14 No. Main St.
Mark your calendars and make a date for the upcoming July 12 Colfax Art Walk.
PlacerArts, now celebrating its Jubilee year, is the Arts Council of Placer County, a non-profit, public benefit agency and the designated State Local partner of the California Arts Council for the County of Placer. The Colfax Art Walk is coordinated, in conjunction with PlacerArts and the Sierra Vista Art Center, by the all-volunteer Colfax Art Walk Committee.
