Montrose Artwalk

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!

    Dear Barbara, I love your work – so vibrant! I found it today as I was considering the Montrose Art Walk May 2 – was in Montrose with gr kids last weekend – thinking my ceramic sculptures might do well there – notice you are not there this year – any feedback? thanks so much – best of everything, carol

I'm an artist. I make paintings with dots.

I work in acrylic paint, in a couple of distinct styles: landscapes and abstracts.

Native to California, I've lived elsewhere and only recently returned to my home state. I now live in Los Angeles.

I mostly show my art in outdoor festivals in California. I also occasionally show my work in art galleries or open studio events. You can see an up-to-date list of upcoming shows on my website (click here).

I invite you to sign up to receive my free email newsletter, in which I list my upcoming shows and talk about my latest work. I send it irregularly, a few times a year.
