Colby Community College art instructor Rebel Mahieu and her students will host the annual Spring Art Walk on Friday, April 20, from 5 to 8:30 p.m. along Franklin Avenue in downtown Colby. This is the eighth year for the event.

Art and activities will span 16 locations, with many pieces available for purchase. The show will feature works by professional artists, as well as student creations from CCC and area K-12 public and private schools.

K-12 art will be displayed at McCarty Dairy. CCC student art will be on display in Colby Furniture.

Additional highlights include:

At 8 p.m. Moonlight Gardens, located at 1837 Co. Rd. V, will host “Tulips and Tequila” to showcase their new glow-in-the-dark products.

“There will be all kinds of interesting talent to see, and we still have room for more if somebody has something they want to share,” Mahieu said.

There is no charge to attend. For more information or to volunteer, contact Mahieu at (785) 460-5459.
