Hot Springs First Friday Art Walk, April 6, 2007

Artists and patrons of

Last Friday night was the First Friday Art Walk in beautiful down town Hot Springs. The weather was quite brisk but we had a great time. We started out visiting Gallery Central and talking with owner Bess Sanders. Her theme this night was “Horses, Horses, and Horses” and we view some of the most awesome equestrian/horse racing art we have seen. We also had the pleasure of speaking with Gallery Central’s Featured Artist Jan Woods who displayed some exquisitely beautiful horse racing sculptures featured in the pictures below.Next we visited the Artists’ Workshop Gallery a few doors down where we spoke with their Featured Artist Shirley Anderson and view some of her wonderful pastel works. I especially loved the piece titled Alpandiere, Espana as seen in the top left of her picture below. We cut our chilly outing short and had dinner at Ristorante Belle Arti across the street where the cuisine was absolutely outstanding and the service was great. All in all we had an extremely wonderful evening despite the cold and are looking forward to returning to the beautiful city of Hot Springs on the next First Friday Art Walk when the weather should be much more conducive to Gallery hopping. We will be sure to look for you there.
