The Brookings Second Saturday Art Walk will be back in swing Saturday, March 14, from 3 to 6 p.m. As usual, there will be lots of art to see, live music and special events—and all of it free.
Starting at 3 p.m.—and right through till closing—Connie and Christine of C & C Art Glass will be live at Wild Bird and Backyard General Store to meet visitors, show their colorful creations, and explain the materials and processes used to create them.
4 p.m., Brian Scott Gallery’s Christina Olsen will introduce and interview featured artists Dana Nelson and Lee Bond, who will tell visitors how they create—and then creatively frame—intricate ink drawings.

It’s also rumored that, although nothing formal is planned, most artists showing at Wright’s Fog and Fine Art Gallery will be on hand throughout the afternoon to mix and mingle with visitors.
Don’t forget the music. Except for the library, every venue will have someone playing live, with musical styles varying from swing to classic rock.
If you miss this month's art walk or just want to see a recap, a March Art Walk report will be posted here on Sunday, March 15.
