Jan. 1 First Friday Art Walk 
Join us for a "two-step" Art Walk Jan. 1 and Jan. 8!
The January Art Walk is always a little bit different. Some of our locations take a breather in January; others continue to hold art openings, but not necessarily on First Friday.

As a result, the  Jan. 1 Walk is an intimate affair with seven participating venues offering a warm welcome to all.  Jan. 1 is not the end of the story, however. The January Walk is  a "two-step," with some venues holding their art receptions on Jan. 1, and others taking the holiday off and opening their shows Jan. 8. We all come together again for Second Saturday, noon-5 p.m. Jan. 9!

Check the details below to see when your favorite locations hold their receptions. Come see us in January!

Alicia paints a variety of subject matter but always has in mind the re-creation not just of an image, but of mood, light, and colors that capture her imagination. Alicia likes to isolate what seems common and try to recreate it in a different light, all the while, providing a source of emotion for the viewer. This month at Springfield Brewing Company, she will feature dramatic landscapes in both acrylic and watercolor
