April 3 First Friday Art Walk 
Join us for Art in 19 participating Art Walk venues

     Spring has sprung and Art Walk is awash in color, activity, music and more 6-10 April 3. 

     We are going retro in April, reviving our print newsletter with handy map and show descriptions.

     Art Walk News is the original handheld device for negotiating the Walk. This low-tech approach requires no scrolling, no data charges and it will NOT drain your smart phone battery. Pick up your copy at any official Art Walk location!


Attention Early Birds: Want to get an early start on Art Walk? Join OTC Fine Art Gallery at The Gillioz as early as 5 p.m. for its fantastic April show: the Annual Central Ozarks Conference Juried High School Exhibition.
