Amy and Katie talked about plans for a Final Friday Art Walk to be held Friday, August 31st. Arrangements are still being made but we are planning to have a few featured artists’ work displayed at The Alleyway Studio and Art Gallery (Cyphers Photography), artists demonstrating, and live music. Tentative hours are 6-8 pm. After we have more plans finalized, we will contact chamber businesses to see if they would be willing to feature artists or musicians. The group made a list of steps to take for planning this event.
Show and Tell: Kathleen showed 2 landscape paintings and Katie showed a mixed media mallard hen and ducklings.
