Today (June 9) is an opportunity to experience up close the art culture of Brookings, and this time with an extra bonus for those who may have missed the Azalea Festival art show.
Winning entries are on display at Manley Art Center — everything from watercolor paintings to 3-D art.
Plus there will be plenty to see at other art walk venues. For example, with the book sale over, the library’s meeting room will have a new show of Brookings-themed artwork. And its lobby showcase will have a new display about the kids library.
Details about the art and more featured at other art walk venues are included in the listings below. Most venues will also provide refreshments and music performed by artists representing a number of musical styles.
There are no admission charges, and there’s no obligation to buy.
Anyone who misses any or all of the Second Saturday Art Walk’s activities can find a report with photos at www.wildriverscoastart.com.
