The Art Scene in Williams expands
WILLIAMS, Ariz. - The Gallery in Williams is pleased to announce that three venues for art have been added to the Williams Second Saturday Art Walk 6-9 p.m. this weekend. Art walk visitors are encouraged to visit these new participants as well as the established venues this Saturday.
The first addition to the Art Walk schedule is Frankie's Notions located above Neil Logan's "courthouse" studio in Wild West Junction at 321 E. Route 66. Logan creates one-of-a-kind, colorful, hand-painted gifts and crafts.
The next new location is Lonesome Dove Antiques at 420 N. Grand Canyon Blvd. Stroll down memory lane at Lonesome Dove to find collectibles, art, and treasures from the past.
Also added to the art walk is The Open Studio at 106 S. Ninth St. (behind Family Dollar). Visitors will watch artists at work in The Open Studio and purchase real art for reasonable prices.
All these new venues for art will have something special offered at Saturday's Art Walk. Maps for the Williams Second Saturday Art Walk can be found at The Gallery in Williams at 309 W. Route 66, the Williams Visitor Center, and all art walk participants. The Gallery is a great place to start the Williams Walk experience, where visitors will be treated to free refreshments and live music provided by Williams' own Kerry-Lynn Moede.
The Gallery in Williams is also pleased to announce the addition of four new artists to its membership. Mingo Morvin is a wildlife photographer, mountain climber, and all-around enthusiastic adventurer. His spectacular photographs of North American wildlife give viewers a glimpse into the nature and lives of animals around us.
Charity Bishop brings her collection of fabric coil bowls and baskets, often made from cloth that she had dyed herself using natural dyes. Neatness can be elegant.
Clothing can now be found at The Gallery. Suzen Brackell creates sexy and comfortable tops, vests, coats, and scarves from flowing fabrics.
And The Gallery's newest jeweler is Kelly Van Evera, who creates sensational knotted jewelry using semi-precious stones, crystals, and even sacred Sedona red dirt. You can take a little of that special energy with you.
The featured artist at The Gallery in Williams for the month of August is New Mexico metal sculptor Richard Hayhurst. His Southwest-themed sculpture has won many prestigious awards. Richard's work will be displayed in the main window of the Gallery and inside the Gallery for the month of August, and will continue inside the Gallery through September.
