White Street Studio Walk

WHITE STREET STUDIO WALK By Rhonda at Canvas Junkie
Celebrating year 19......
  The 19th annual White Street Studio Walk will take place Friday, May 15, from 4 p.m. until 10 p.m., in Eureka Springs, AR.  Historic White Street is the working address of several local artists who will welcome the public into homes and studios to view their latest works.  They will be joined by more than thirty guest artists, including many registry members, who will show weaving, watercolors, jewelry, oils, pottery, stained glass and much more.

   Among those displaying will be 19-year show veterans: weaver, Eleanor Lux; watercolorist, Zeek Taylor; and painters, Mary Springer and John Willer. The four are the walk's organizers and all by coincidence ended up living on White Street after attending the Memphis College of Art.
   Besides the attraction of art, the event draws crowds who delight in experiencing a "hidden" Eureka Springs where they can visit with artists in their private spaces.  One of Eureka Springs' most popular events, the White Street Studio Walk is attended by those seeking art while enjoying the street fair atmosphere combined with refreshments and music. Turquoise flags will identify participating locations.  White Street is on the upper historic loop, not far from the Crescent Hotel.  The event is free to the public.
