June marks the 10th Anniversary of the Brookings Second Saturday Art Walk, and Saturday, June 14, from 3 to 6 p.m., there will be lots of art, music and special events to celebrate.
For those who missed the Azalea Festival Art Show, there’s a second chance to see the winners, as all winning entries from the show will be on display at PBAA’s Manley Art Center during the art walk, as well as the rest of the month.
There will be several special events during the 10th Anniversary art walk, too.
At Dewey’s Digs throughout the art walk, artist Pete Chasar will give a live acrylic painting demonstration while showing 10 paintings done in the contemporary painting style he calls “graphic realism.”
Chetco Community Public Library at 3:30 p.m. hosts members of Chetco Pelican Players performing a hilariously rotten scene from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
At Brian Scott Gallery/Signatures, artists Christina Olsen, Sandy Bonney and Dale Wells will perform a paint-a-round and raffle, with optional donations going to Pennies for Pooches. At 5:45 p.m., the trio’s finished paintings will be awarded to the winning ticket holders present.
Something special will be happening at Gypsies, too: Tonya Haapala and Janet Sinclair will treat visitors to an artistic energy health demonstration.
There will be a live painting competition at Wright’s Fog and Fine Art Gallery. Sara Broderick will participate in the live "paint off" and artwork by Sara's SOCC and College of the Redwoods students will be shown in the back classroom.
For those who miss any of the anniversary art walk action, or simply want to experience a brief recap of activities, an after-art-walk report will be posted.
