This year the Ann Arbor Art Walk is scheduled for Friday, October 17th, 2008 from 5-10 P.M. and Saturday, October 18th from 12-5 P.M.
The Art Walk Guide represents a consortium of galleries, exhibition spaces, visual artists and crafts people in the greater Ann Arbor area.
As of this year, Art Walk has taken another big step by joining forces with the Arts Alliance, the Washtenaw County non-profit organization that works for all the arts in this county. Art Walk members have become linked with such efforts as the Artists Census, which made a count of artists in every field working in the county.
More than 2000 artists create their work, pay taxes, their craft, and vote in this county, which means that the arts are a major economic sector in Washtenaw County.
One of my good friends, Karen Dean is having a special private showing this Saturday, September 20th from 2-5 at 1730 Stonebridge Drive S in Ann Arbor, Mi.
Karen will be introducing her newest book, Kitty Kate’s Tea Party and her latest two paintings, “The Grand Blessing”, and “Number 42″, along with her other work.
The following galleries will be open in October for you to walk and meet the artists. You can download a map from this site.
However, Karen would love for you to stop by this Saturday for a sneak preview.
