The Next "First Friday Art Walk" This Week
Wednesday, May 30, 2012 • Posted May 30, 2012

Mason’s next “First Friday Art Walk” will be this coming Friday June 1, from 6:30 – 8:30.

Please note the change in time due to the warm temperatures.

Many more businesses are joining us this month by staying open late, and showcasing one or more artists. Look for the purple MASON ART WALK flags.

Starting at the North alley, between the radio station and Lamplight Designs, Debra Hofmann and Cheryl Reiney; will welcome you and you can enjoy Debra’s elephant mural.

Toni Hurlbut will show her jewelry on the patio behind Coco Luna where Carol and Craig Conley will start you off with a refreshing glass of sangria. Right next door behind Renee Walker Real Estate, Renee will introduce you to Sid and Jim Mangum, husband and wife artists. They will show and sell their paintings, carvings and mixed media.

At “Good to Go”, Marla and Bonnie will be showing off their culinary talents with some delicious samples. And the Hinkleys will open up their back door and offer antique “Old Masters” prints and frames for sale.

The second block of the North alley is also coming alive this time. Diane and Brad Eames will have their “Texas Flag Back Door Rock Shop” open. They encourage you to bring your own quartz or play with one of their stones and see how you can shape them. The Gems of the Hill Country store will also be open late.

Make your way on down to the end of the alley and visit the “Artisan Gallery”, home of the Fine Art Association. Enjoy works by local artists, some wine and music.

Before continuing on to the East side of the square, be sure to stop at Kyle Martin’s Studio loft next door to Willow Creek Café. You will have to climb some stairs but it is worth it.

No alleys on the East side so it will be a comfortable walk on the sidewalks to The Mason Gallery where Bob and Cathy Terrell are hosting local artist Dorrett Townsend. She will be showing her paintings and creative arrangements. Enjoy some light refreshments while browsing the many works of art in the gallery.

Moving on down the street, both The Shooting Star and The Petal Patch will stay open for business late. Both stores represent many artist: Trudy Irwin, Linda Granberry, Barbara Garner, Carolyn Copeland, Christine Cortez, Jennifer Barkley and Gladys Kaderka just to name a few.

Hopefully you will make it all the way down to Sandstone Cellars to see works by nationally renowned artists such as Bill Worrell and Spider Johnson. And under the trees in front of the Wine Café you will find members of the Hill Country Art Association, like Julie Alford showing and selling her creations and Bridget Landale with her “Painted Tree – Art Experience”. Get involved and create your own work of art.

All the participating businesses would like to thank you for making our first “First Friday Art Walk” such a huge success. Over 125 people registered. We hope you will again spend a couple of very interesting and enjoyable hours with us in downtown Mason Texas.
