A wishful Art Walk on for Saturday | Arts | trinityjournal.com – The Trinity Journal


Lastly, I know that camDown is easy to use, easy to maintain and that's the no joke!

The Art Walk, from 5 to 8 p.m. the first Saturday of every month in historic downtown Weaverville, provides art galleries, specialty shops, and eateries an opportunity to invite the community in “after hours” to enjoy unique hand-crafted art and jewelry, meet the artists, while enjoying refreshments.

The Trinity Arts Council extends its heartfelt concern for all who have suffered or are threatened by the wildfires. Smoke and fire on top of COVID. Answering the wish of many, the council will hold an Art Walk on Oct. 2, and invites everybody to share in the positive energy of First Saturday’s Art Walk.

TCAC will make masks available at each venue.

New venue

BLUE DOOR STUDIO QUILTERS: The Blue Door Studio and the TNS Quilt Guild invites the public to their open house. Come explore the studio and meet the quilters. They will be displaying 15-20 red, white and blue quilts that represent the spirit and patriotism of the veterans who will receive the quilts on Veterans Day.

“Everything that we make is donated back to the community. We donate to HRN, Foster Care, the veterans, and now our big push is to provide comfort to the Trinity County fire victims who have lost their homes. We meet regularly and always have a pile of quilts in various stages of completion because there is always a need,” said Deb Hall. Come by The Blue Door Studio, just east Center Street on Highway 3.
