Art & Soul ArtWalk 2017 - Truckee, CA

This year's Art & Soul event featured 30 stops with local artists, food and beverages in historic Downtown Truckee, with proceeds from the event supporting Arts for the Schools.

Attendees were able to meet with artists, view demonstrations and even get in on the action with some stations offering hands-on tutorials from metal stamping to oil painting. Attendees received a commemorative tasting glass for all the local imbibing.

We were so honored to be a part of this event both as a sponsor and as a host to local photographer, Abe Blair, right here in our store. We've featured Abe's work for a while now, as his beautiful images of the Truckee-Tahoe area serve as the perfect complement to our historic location and interior design esthetic. Food at our stop was provided by our neighbors, Jax at the Tracks, and beer from FiftyFifty Brewing

This year was particularly special because Truckee was recently named a Culture District for California by the California Arts Council, which we know first hand is part of what makes this area special.

"The long-term potential for Truckee as a cultural district in supporting local artists and makers, and really building an audience and a market for the activities that are already vibrant and happening here" said Hillary Hobbs, management analyst for the Town of Truckee in her interview with Sierra Sun, following the announcement.
