The annual ArtWalk in Livermore will be held this year in a scaled down version, called ArtWalk Light, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. next Saturday (Oct. 10).
For two decades the event, sponsored by Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center, has turned downtown into an arts district for a day, but this time 30 booths will be spread out on the Bankhead Plaza outside the theater.
As always, the happening will feature original works, jewelry and gifts by dozens of artists, including Autumn Lane Studio’s fine art pieces, KathieStudio’s hand-printed pieces, and Hudson River Inlay’s fine inlaid wood products. Most artwork on display will be available for purchase.
A temporary public art sculpture will be on the plaza, titled “Where Do We Go From Here?” to reflect on the challenges everyone is facing, with two 8-foot wood posts featuring signs pointing in all directions. Music alumni from Las Positas College will provide live music during the event.
For the first time since closing in March, the Bankhead Gallery, located in the lobby of the Bankhead Theater, will be open for limited access to view a new exhibit, the “Best of the Bothwell.” It will showcase more than two dozen pieces in a range of styles by studio artists who currently work or teach at Bothwell Arts Center on Eighth Street. Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District will also display the work of young artists from Livermore, Granada and Del Valle high schools.
