Art Walk April 23

Mon Apr 12, 2021

The Colby Community College art department will host the 10th annual Spring Art Walk on Friday, April 23, from 5 to 8:30 p.m. along Franklin Avenue in downtown Colby. The event was canceled last year because of the pandemic. 

Art and activities will span 19 locations, with many pieces available for purchase. The show will feature works by professional artists and student creations from CCC and area K-12 public and private schools.

K-12 art will be hung at McCarty Dairy. CCC student art will be on display in the Franklin Office Complex.

Additional highlights include:

  • Watercolor demonstrations by Elwyn Vatcher.
  • An opportunity to purchase and glaze pottery at Movement Connection. Artist Lissa Sexson will fire the piece and return it to the buyer later.
  • Labyrinth art.
  • An Encaustic demonstration by Rebel Mahieu.
  • Weaving demonstration at La Loteria.
  • An aluminum pour south of BankWest.
  • A 2D art demonstration by Julie Peterson-Shea at Colby Furniture.
  • Food vendors.
  • Face painting.
  • Musical talent on the streets.
  • Caricature drawings.

"There will be something for everyone," said CCC art instructor Rebel Mahieu. "And we still have room for more if somebody has something they want to share."

There is no charge to attend. For more information or to volunteer, contact Mahieu at (785) 269-7065.
