Sarah Sweetwater Downtown Art Walk

The Sarah Sweetwater Downtown Art Walk is coming to Elko, Saturday, May 14, 2016 from 3-6pm. This family friendly walk is a self-guided tour that begins at the Elko County Art Club Gallery at 407 Railroad St.

An enjoyable experience awaits Art Walk patrons as Downtown Elko showcases talented Elko painters, photographers, jewelry designers, actors, musicians and more reflecting a diverse selection of mediums, styles and trends in the art world. Many of the locations will have hands on experiences for children and adults alike, giving everyone the opportunity to create their own piece of art.

This year, the Elko Downtown Business Association decided to honor one of Elko’s great artists, Sarah Sweetwater, and rename the event in her honor. Sweetwater believed that people needed to continue learning about art and to experience art, which is at the heart of what the Downtown Art Walk is all about.

Bring the whole family down and be an artist for a day, learn about the different forms of art and enjoy all that Downtown Elko has to offer. “Art is the language of the soul. You don’t have to be an art lover or an artist to expand your life through the arts,” Sarah Sweetwater.
