Art walk planned for Saturday
A Jackson County Western Art Walk will be held from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday in downtown Holton as part of the monthly Second Saturday event.
Jackson County Arts is sponsoring a western art exhibit at the Hutchins Building and a “Cowgirls and Cowboys at Play” storyboard art walk that evening.
Local artists will display 24-inch by 36-inch canvases illustrating all the scenes from “Cowgirls and Cowboys at Play,” a story written by Carol Totten.
Sixteen illustrated storyboards will be placed outside businesses around the Holton Square along with the text of the story. Artists will meet and greet the public and be on hand to answer questions.
The storyboards will begin at J.M. Sewing Center on the west side of the Square and continue north and east around the Square, ending on the south side at Lifetime Eye Care.
Featured artists include Carol Totten, Kathleen Cobb, Charissa Totten, Mary and David Schock, Katie Morris, Amy Cyphers, Sandy Studebaker-Gilbert, Linda Brownlow, Sarah Diggs, Marty Mavrovich, Suzette McCord-Rogers, Rhett Totten, Taber Barta and Sydney Snyder.
Western art depicting cowboys, horses, barns and landscapes will also be on display that evening at the Hutchins Building on the west side of the Square. Featured western artists will be Gary Shupe and C.L. Riley, with David Schock and Sharon Kessler. Additional Jackson County Arts members will round out the exhibit with other art pieces.
Lori Fleming Huyett will be throwing pottery at The Gossip and will also have other art on exhibit and for sale.
