First Friday Art Walk – June 4, 2021

  1. FRAME UP

Stroll on down to see Lily Winter’s newest take on old favorites. A collaboration with Frame Up has resulted in new framed pieces of her hand painted aluminum — like her treasured earrings, but larger. They are small enough to highlight a nook, space above the counter, or above a bedside table.

 

  1. LAKE LOVER VINTAGE

Hosting local artists, Rick and Tammy Horton of Tamarick Designs. These self-taught lapidary and metalsmithing designers enjoy revealing the beauty hidden in raw rocks and minerals, and displaying them in unique settings that highlight their elegance.

Featuring the much-loved art of Kim Young!  Kim will show her new Icelandic fish leather earrings as well as Lily Winter-inspired silver tray earrings and colorful hand painted earrings.  Always one of a kind!
