ArtWalk happened last night, but due to the onslaught of Winter weather, it’s going to happen again next week. Thursday December 23, from 5 to 8 PM, will see the second ArtWalk of the month. This is the rare “Blue ArtWalk” that only happens every 13 years.
Melanie Larch and I braved the harsh cold and nasty snow, and made two early stops for ArtWalk: The Purple Moon and The Art Emporium. We then stopped in The Vandalia Grille to warm up and have dinner, and the meal was so good that we decided to cut our losses and head home.
That’s why you’re only getting a partial ArtWalk Photo Essay this week, but we do plan to visit the other galleries in tiime for a special “Pre-second Artwalk of the month” edition of The PopCulteer next Thursday, so we can take Christmas Eve off.
So check out part of ArtWalk, and then read PopCult every day as our 2010 Gift Guide wraps up and we return to our regular features. But follow the jump for our mini-photo essay of the ArtWalk without a Santa Claus.
That’s it for this week’s PopCulteer. We’re going to forego the usual run-down of local bands this week because the weather is making a lot of those shows look questionable. Check the calendar here at The Gazette to see who’s playing, but call first to see if the shows are still on, and please drive carefully.
