FIRST FRIDAY ART WALK SCHEDULED
Hollister, MO (May 23, 2018) — Online publication StateoftheOzarks.net has scheduled a “First Friday Art Walk” series beginning 6-9PM, Friday, June 7, in downtown Hollister. StateoftheOzarks (SOTO) also curates the #SOTOLife Creative Community.
Participating merchant businesses include Ye Olde English Inn, Downing Street Pour House, Twinkle Market, Number 10 Downing Salon, and Vintage Paris. Scheduled artisans are Chris Boyd, Maple Hill Ceramics, Jenny Judlin, Mary Arneson, Mary Evelyn Tucker, Christine Riutzel, Heath Copper and Shannon Bacon.
“We are committed to this art walk series,” says StateoftheOzarks editor-in-chief Joshua Heston. “Hollister is our home and the downtown historic district is the heart and soul of our community. Our goal is to create a fun, accessible, quirky, heightened experience in one of the coolest spots of the Ozarks.”
StateoftheOzarks First Friday Art Walk is spearheaded by a four-person team of #SOTOLife Creative Community members: Joseph Long, Jenny Judlin, Jared Houle and Sir Frederick the Wise (AKA Caleb Hurshman).
“The role of an artist is to inspire the community. More importantly, art is a reflection of us all,” shares Judlin.
“Art is too important not to share. A healthy community is one that is able to express themselves. My heart’s desire in my hometown is to see the use of the creative arts to elevate our community’s experience,” adds Houle.
All participating merchant businesses and artisans are also #SOTOLife members. For more information about First Friday Art Walk, please email StateoftheOzarks at email@example.com or call Joseph Long at (417) 593-4458.
StateoftheOzarks (SOTO) First Friday Art Walk is free for all attendees.
