Local artisans Hungry For the Arts

Logan’s Friday night (Dec. 3) Gallery Walk includes more than 20 participating locations displaying works by local artists. The Cache Valley Center for the Arts sponsors this winter walk from 6-9 p.m. CVCA Program Director is Amanda Castillo. “All of the locations have maps indicating each of the stops but if you are curious where those are, our web site includes them all at www.cachearts.org.” Castillo said some of the locations will collect food. “One of the things we started last year with the Cache Valley Arts Summit,” said Castillo, “was a ‘Hungry For the Arts’ campaign. During the gallery walk many of the participating locations downtown will have food bins out. If you bring a can of food with you, no matter where you start, there will be a place to drop it off. We don’t want anyone to go hungry during the holidays and this is one way the arts can help out.” Collected non-perishable food items will go to the Cache Community Food Pantry. Regular gallery walks are designed to feature the work of local artists. “We have a lot of amazing art that is created here in Cache Valley,” said Castillo, “with a lot of artists that are up-and-coming. A lot of their work is either unknown or people don’t know where they can buy art. When you drive through town you may not see galleries everywhere but there is so much creativity here. So this is a way to promote our local arts scene.” She said many of the locations will continue to display their shows for three to four weeks after the gallery walk. A lot of the displayed art is for sale, said Castillo, providing for gift choices for those doing Christmas shopping.
