Midtown offers the Moon, the abstract & more during 2nd Saturday Artwalk

A center for culture, creativity and vibrancy, Midtown Sacramento is an exciting 2nd Saturday Art Walk destination where local art galleries and other participating businesses collaborate to host a popular evening open house each month. Midtown guests will enjoy viewing art exhibits, participating in hands-on activities, meeting local artists, sampling food and wine, listening to live music and more.  On Saturday, October 14, 2017, a sampling of the offerings presented by Midtown galleries and businesses include the following:

  • ARTasylum (2017 I Street #B) – an artist studio, gallery, and boutique in Midtown – presents a special show titled "October Moon” along with an art demonstration, “meet the artists” opportunity, music, complimentary refreshments, an art project and art class giveaway;

 

  • Art Of Toys (1126 18th Street) – presents an exhibit titled “Art of Dolls” with participating artists that include Yolanda Bello, Christine Benjamin, Stephanie Blythe, Marca Castillo, Sheri DeBow, Wendy Lawton, Stephanie Notvaski, LaLa Ortiz, Marilyn Radzat and Heather Schubert. Plus, Artie Annette offers a free art project for all ages (5:30 to 7:30 p.m.).

 

  • Capital City Beads (1729 L Street) -- will have a booth set up outside the shop with a special make n' take essential oil bracelet project. Guests can learn about the benefits of essential oils as well as how to make their own oil diffuser bracelet (noon to 4 p.m.)

 

  • Tim Collom Gallery (915 20th Street) – presents an abstract exhibition titled Nichole Lauren Fry: New Horizons.  Pulling inspiration from California scenery, Nichole's work reflects the opulent blues and greens of Lake Tahoe and the fiery hues of sunsets in Huntington Beach. Nichole hopes to evoke emotion with contrasting hard edges cutting across an ethereal, color-saturated landscape.

 

  • TRUE (1900 K Street) – a boutique that benefits WEAVE, TRUE is recognizing Domestic Violence Awareness Month and encourages the community to stop by for complimentary light snacks and to spin the wheel for a shopping discount on clothing that creates change in lives when you buy.

In addition to the special offerings provided by Midtown businesses, the ever-popular Midtown Farmers Market is happening that day from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Midtown is both walkable and bike-friendly with parking available in nearby garages located at 1801 L Street or the East End Garage on 17th Street between L & Capitol plus various lots throughout Midtown.
