Arts Crawl July 14

We are so excited about the upcoming South Pas Arts Crawl on July 14. The Chamber of Commerce, along with arts organizations and merchants are producing these events four times a year now and we love them. There's always lots of art, activities, live music, and food, plus stories are open late and all of Mission Street downtown puts on a party. And we have some fun things planned:

ngeneIn the SPACE Gallery we are very excited about a new artist we just met, Ngene Mwaura who is a talented and soulful young artist, originally from Kenya. He will be painting live in the SPACE storefront and some of his completed paintings will be on view (and for sale!). His work is bold and colorful, and blends African artistic traditions with European influences and contemporary street art.

Out front, henna artist Ellen Stavash will adorn adults and children alike with custom, hand-drawn henna designs.  

In the SPACE Studio at 1504 Mission Street - Our first summer Handmade Arts trunk show features art prints and jewelry by Courtney Oquist, handbags by Jeanie Joe, glass art by Andy Gersh, and jewelry designs by Anita Finnegan. The trunk show sale continues Fridays - Sundays, July 14 - July 29. We are trying this out for the first time, so let us know what you think. The items in this pop-up boutique make wonderfully unique gift items.
