Second Saturday Art Opens in July 2021
We hope all is well after the pandemic! We have missed all of your smiling faces and beautiful art work. The church has opened its doors to us for 2nd Saturday Art Walk. In 2019 the show season was successful with an average of 200 attendees to our event!
This announcement invites you to join the show again at First United Methodist Church. We are so excited to see everyone’s new art works and smiling faces. The criteria stays the same with a few minor changes.
The art show is part of the 2nd Saturday Art Walk in Midtown. We run from April to October. This year we will run from July to October. If you choose to be a part of our show you most certainly are welcome. There is no fee for participating.
IF you are available to help artists find their way around or set up or make refreshments for the public or just share your smile, YOU are welcome to volunteer!
Thank you for your helping out! If you have any questions please feel free to inquire.
