Walk the six blocks, stopping at participating businesses to view their new art exhibits, listen to live music, and enjoy their special activities. Generally the hours are 4pm to 8pm, but please check each business website for more information.

This month, in order to get your passport signed (see below), you'll need to first find Picatso! 

PASSPORT PROMOTION: Pick up the Art & Wine Walk Passport at any of the businesses listed below. When you're finished strolling and exploring our beautiful downtown, leave the Passport with any of these same businesses and you'll be entered into the drawing for a chance to win one of the above gift certificates. Must be 21 or older to enter. Drawing will take place the Wednesdsay following Saturday's Art Walk. Need not be present to win.

For the month of August, in order to get your passport signed, you'll need to find Picatso the painting cat!  Picatso which depicts a cat painting a wine bottle is a handmade woodblock print by artist Phyllice Bradner. Bradner’s prints and paintings of whimsical animals can be seen at Currents Gallery, an artist-owned gallery where she is one of the founding members.

This month, Picatso must be “found” before the passport will be signed off. Once visitors find Picatso at least 6 times, they will be entered into a drawing to receive $50 in gift certificates to a downtown business. Two winners will be chosen.  Participating Art & Wine Walk Businesses are listed below.
