On Saturday I had a fun time showing my art in Montrose, California.
The city organizes this “Artwalk” four times each year: May, July, September, and November. This year I signed up for the July and the September shows. It’s just a single day, usually the first Saturday of the month (though this July it was the second Saturday because of the 4th of July holiday).
It’s held on the sidewalk of Honolulu Avenue, on the two most scenic blocks of the street (centered around 2400 Honolulu Ave). On these two blocks you’ll find little boutiques, specialty shops, an art gallery, coffee, pizza, music, karate, and lots of leafy trees and pleasant shade. Oh yes, and lots of parking- paid on the street, free just off the street.
It was pretty hot on Saturday (as indeed it’s been quite hot all summer), but people still stopped by and chatted. I always love talking about my work with people. I get great feedback and lots of encouragement. Plus, I got to catch up with some collectors of mine as well as meet a couple other cool artists. Good times were had by all.
I’ll be back in Montrose in September!
