CDABA Hosts Art Walk In Reedsport

K-DOCK 92.9

The Coastal Douglas Arts & Business Alliance’s fourth annual Art Walk will be held on Friday, June 14th from 4 to 8pm and again on Saturday, June 15th in old town Reedsport.

On Friday, June 14th, there will be over 16 artists, who will set up their displays on the sidewalk between Rainbow Plaza and the ORCA Gallery. There will be additional artists inside the Mindpower Gallery, 415 Fir Avenue. The art on display this year will include photography, paintings, hand knits, wood scroll art, stained glass, finger puppets, quilts, jewelry, and more. The final Library Photography Contest submissions will also be on display at the Mindpower Gallery.

Look for open gallery spaces and other business along Highway 38—including new galleries such as Gallery 473 and Mary’s Treasurers, and don’t forget that the Myrtlewood Gallery, 1125 Highway Avenue, also participates in the Art Walk and stays open late for visitors. Participants may not be able to “walk” to the Myrtlewood, but it is just a short drive away. The galleries and some of the artists will also be set up on Saturday, June 15th for your viewing pleasure. The fun continues Friday night with a wine tasting event at the Mindpower Gallery, hosted by Henry Estate Winery; and a brewery tasting event at the ORCA Gallery, hosted by Reedsport’s own Defeat River Brewery. Also at the ORCA Gallery will be music by Sean Grubb between 4-5:30 pm.

New to this year’s event will be a Saturday morning Kid’s Craft Corner, which will be a free event. All the materials and supplies will be provided for kids to assemble a wood craft that they can take home with them. The Kid’s Craft Corner will be open 10am to Noon.
