The second weekend in April is the big arts event of the year in downtown Mobile and things are off to a great start today! Art(ology) is showcasing a new show, "The Illumination of Color," which emphasizes the bold use of color across all mediums from jewelry to watercolors. Throughout the weekend there will be music venues with the South Sounds Music Festival, art booths in Cathedral Square with Arts Alive, and we will be having a sidewalk sale and be open extended hours.
Here is a group of students from Theodore High School who are called the "Sidewalk Artists." They decorate the sidewalks in Cathedral Square for Arts Alive and we were delighted to meet some up and coming young artists.
Our partners have been working hard to create some new pieces of artwork, spruce up the gallery, and begin planning for classes which will kick off this summer. If you are planning a visit to Mobile, make sure and add us to your "Must list!."
Candid shots of Artwalk tonight! The gallery was hopping!
