Art Walk in Downtown Elko on May 9th

Art Walk May 9, 2015 in Downtown Elko NV

On Saturday, May 9, from 3:00 to 6:00 pm, the Western Folklife Center participated in the Elko Downtown Art Walk.

The theme of this Art Walk was "Paint Will Happen!" A family-friendly event (non-alcoholic beverages available), the Western Folklife Center and other shops had many exciting activities for adults and children to enjoy.

The Folklife Center Gift Shop featured Sam Brown of Art House, a northeastern Nevada artist, who creates beautiful glazed clay treasures and functional pieces using nature's ingredients. Sam had her pottery wheel set up during the event and folks of all ages enjoyed getting a touch of the potter's life.
