August Art Walk- East Side

As we prepare for this Friday's Art Walk, we wanted to share a little more information about the artists and art you will see. You can view a complete list of participating locations here: 

Uptown Treasures- Dusty Snethen
            Dusty Snethen is a life long Kansas resident who credits his love of art to early days spent with crayons and coloring books. Eventually he would take his coloring skills to Kansas University where he majored in Commercial Art. There he quickly realized that he preferred to create art for himself as opposed for others and switched his major to education. “Too me art is very personal, and although I may paint subjects who are fairly mainstream, there is a deep personal reason for me choosing the characters, musicians, actors etc. that I select.” Dusty now teaches fifth grade in Topeka Kansas where he lives with his wife and two children.

Expressions- Brandee Longhofer

Quilting on the Square- Jackson Heights High School Students, teacher: Amy Maiers
            Hammered dulcimer music by Fred Appelhanz 
"I have been playing guitar (6 and 12 string) since 1975 and the hammer dulcimer since 2000. Also have written about 10 songs of my own material.
My style of music would be mostly Folk with a little Celtic."
