General hours for the galleries arethrough , , but individual artists may set their own hours. One of the best times to visit is the first of any month. On these days, the district hosts First Art Walks, which feature live music entertainment and the chance to tour all of the galleries. The Art Walks also offer fun events such as adult scavenger hunts.
Some of the popular stops include:
- Artize Gallery - This local favorite displays art from an array of contemporary artists, including photographers, sculptors, and painters.
- Taylor Mickle Photography - Mickle's unconventional photography plays with scale, depicting such topics as dioramas and circular panoramas. Her works are sure to surprise and delight.
- David A. Clark Studio - Currently showcasing the work of three artists, don't be surprised to find a variety of colorful printed works and multi-medium pieces. It's also possible to take classes here if you want to try your hand at printmaking.
Of course, with a dozen galleries and displays ranging from jewelry pieces to monographs, you're sure to find something that suits your taste (and perhaps even your budget!)
