A Picture Perfect Walk

I was so excited this week to receive our "Shoe Pole" at Gresham Ford.  Those quirky poles decorated with everything from stilettos to flip flops indicate that Gresham Art Walk is here!  The Art Walk has come a long way from Judy Han's (local business Sunny Hans Restaurant), brainchild of bringing artists an opportunity to display and sell their art at this event.  The first Art Walk in 2001 had 28 artists, this year we are expecting 140 artists.

Tomorrow, Saturday July 21st 2012 will be a picture perfect day in East County.  The weather will be gorgeous and downtown Gresham will be filled with booth after booth of art.  Just to say "beautiful" would be inadequate.  Go to for a sampling of some of the fabulous and diverse works of art.  Many of the artists have notable works and it is free to view.  A true gallery to stroll thru on Main Street in beautiful historic downtown Gresham.

This is a great opportunity to look for just the right gift for someone special or even give yourself a little gift.  Art is truly the gift that keeps on giving.  Can't quit until we give thanks to all the sponsors and volunteers that make this day happen.  Special mention to John Clark at Stamp Connection who is the presenting sponsor and to Greater Gresham Baptist Church who has had 100 volunteers sign-up just to make this community event run even more smoothly.
