Well, color me happy! The Coronado Art Walk is coming back to Ferry Landing this Saturday and Sunday (October 21 and 22) from 10am-5pm. More than 75 artists will showcase their original works of art in a diverse range of media from ceramics to textiles, photography to jewelry, from mixed media to paint and beyond. Best part? It’s free.
Attendees will get the chance to stroll and visit Art Walk favorites, all while listening to live music along the mesmerizing San Diego Bay.
“There’s entertainment both days, the Bayou Brothers, Breez’n, Prairie Sky and Bill Magee Blues Band,” says Courtenay.
But what makes the Art Walk really special? I think it’s the chance to discover new artists. Just check out this mermaid we bought at Art Walk a couple of years back. Our living room wouldn’t be the same without her.
And what about the kids? Don’t worry, they will have a blast too. Kids will have the chance to get creative at interactive art activities around the event.
“In the Art Activities area, the ever popular Rad Hatter will encourage your creativity, Dick Blick will do their ‘Paint a Square’ project, and there’s a face painter,” says Courtenay . “And new to this year…we will have Silly Twister Balloons.”
And don’t forgot all the places to pop in for a drink or a bite to eat around the Ferry Landing. (I don’t know about you, but there’s a white wine sangria at Candela’s with my name on it.)
“This is the first time we’ve had the event in October, so hopefully everyone will be pleased with the fall weather,” says Courtenay.
With the weather forecast for a balmy 76 degrees on Saturday, I should think so. Hope to see you there!
