If art is where your heart is, you’re going to love First Friday Art Walk in the Old Mill District

Festivities return Friday, Sept. 3 from 3-6 p.m. – come sip, savor and stroll!

This September, follow Anne Gibson as she brings you on her journey of expressions of tumbling waters. A graphic designer with a background in printmaking and drawing, Anne conveys the power and tranquility of both secret and iconic flows through color, mark making, fluid layers, and composition. Her newest show “Up the Falling Waters”, opens Friday, September 3 at Tumalo Art Co.!  Anne will donate ten percent of all sales from “Up the Falling Water” to local environmental groups working to preserve and protect this place for future generations.

Tumalo Art Co., Lubbesmeyer Art Studio & Gallery, Amejko Artistry, Saxon’s Fine Jewelers, Kara’s Kitchenware and City Home will host events showcasing an array of artists and mediums. First Friday Art Walk is a wonderful opportunity to chat with the artists and makers, to learn about their creative process, and to expand your creative community. Enjoy not only art from around Central Oregon, but different white, red, and bubbly wine samples from Va Piano Vineyards and Evoke Winery , plus, Kara’s Kitchenware is offering samples of regional wine available in her store.

First Friday Art Walk in the Old Mill District is the perfect aperitif before downtown Bend’s activities that start at 5 p.m. Reminder that the state of Oregon has implemented a mask mandate for all indoor, public spaces as well as outdoors where social distancing isn’t possible. We ask all First Friday Art Walk attendees to follow this protocol while visiting the Old Mill District.
