Art Walk returns to downtown Red Bluff on November 5-6 – Red Bluff Daily News
RED BLUFF – The beloved Tehama County Art Walk is scheduled to return to downtown Red Bluff on November 5-6.
People can go out and see the work of local artists at many businesses in downtown Red Bluff. Event organizer Toni Gaylord said some stores are offering food and wine tastings as part of the walk.
“Part of our mission as the Tehama County Arts Council is to raise awareness of what is available here for artists and to somehow spread the appreciation of art in Tehama County,” said declared Gaylord. “So that’s one of the ways we’re trying to do it.”
The first night of the walk is from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday, November 5, the main event of the two-day celebration. There will be live painting, glassblowing, woodcarving, and other demonstrations that are sure to keep everyone interested.
“So the public can come out,” Gaylord said. “They can enjoy an evening looking at local art and local businesses. They can go shopping.
Saturday, November 6 will be a more relaxed daytime event, with admission free and the event will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“It’s a great family day for people to come in and out of businesses and see the art of businesses that are normally open on Saturdays,” Gaylord said.
Weather permitting, the Main Event Gallery will feature sidewalk chalk art that the public is invited to participate in around the gallery. An art exchange meeting will take place in the neighboring car park.
“The sale is basically, if you pick up an item, all we ask is that you donate,” Gaylord said. “We have art. We have art supplies. We have art books, all kinds of prints, all kinds of different things that the public can come and get something for, really cheap, for whatever they want to donate, and can actually hang a work of art. art in his house that they can afford.
The Tehama County Arts Council is selling passports for the Friday night walk for $ 15 at the Main Event Gallery, 710 Main St., Red Bluff. The board has an Eventbrite page for those who wish to purchase their tickets online at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/19th-annual-artwalk-tickets-173127377647.
“This will give you the brochure that shows where all the artists are, what they’re doing and which companies are involved and whether or not they have any refreshments or not, or live music,” Gaylord said. “And then on the back of that passport are some great value coupons from local downtown restaurants and the Gold Exchange valued at over $ 50.”
Last year, the council hosted a reimagined art walk due to the coronavirus pandemic. Limited tickets were sold because the council had to limit the number of people and no one offered food or drink.
“It was a very low-key scaled-down art walk with COVID requirements,” Gaylord said. “So it was better than having nothing, but we feel like we’re going to go back to our traditional way. “
