Amazing Akron Artwalk

I LOVE the monthly Akron Artwalks!  I probably only make it out 4 - 5 times a year, but I'm always inspired by what a creative community Akron is.  I also love that it's not stuffy, but really quite friendly.  You get to meet loads of artists and art lovers from our area.

These events happen the first Saturday of each month, and it's FREE!  You can get the schedule for tonight HERE. It has details about what galleries, shows, and studios are open.  It's a great way to expose kids to a wide range of art.  {I even took a 3 year old to a couple places last year.}  There is also a trolly running between venues.  It's also a great chance to try a favorite or yet to be discovered downtown restaurant.

I'm especially pleased to say I have a painting at the BOX gallery, which is presented by The Artists of Rubber City.  It's another fantastic juried show, and my painting is a part.  You can find this painting in the "Little BOX"--behind the main BOX gallery.

If you can't make it out tonight, the next Artwalk will be June 1, 2013.

What are you up to this weekend?
