A Beautiful Day for an Art Walk!

It was a beautiful day and the crowds came out in numbers to stroll along Main Street and enjoy the sights and sounds of the art walk!  

The day started off with the ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly named Susan Nobbe Children's Garden in honor of our late, dear friend and strong supporter of Art on the Bluffs. We are pleased to recognize Susan for her positive influence and unwavering support of our Art Walk event, love of the arts and devotion to the children of our community.   

Susan's daughter Lauren and son Drew assist little Alayna cutting the ribbon at the entrance of the Children's Garden.





Members of Susan's family, Art on the Bluffs Committee members and City Council members gather together in front of the Children's Garden.


The Art on the Bluffs is proud to announce the Best of Show to Christopher Lynch for his very original and masterful artwork.  Christopher received a monetary gift from the committee and will also receive a free booth for next years walk.  Congratulations!



We are also proud to announce the Honorable Mention to Anthony Borchardt for his beautiful pottery display.  Anthony was presented with a certificate and in addition will receive a free booth for next  years walk.  Congratulations!

5TH ANNUAL ART WALK THIS SATURDAY!

-->





Art on the Bluffs, Inc. welcomes you to its 5th annual art walk.  We are so glad you are here on historic Main Street, Columbia, to enjoy the Arts with us.   



Again this year, we closed a section of Main Street for the ease and comfort of our patrons.  The street is lined with amazing artists, art demonstrations, music, actors’ groups, vendors, and a variety of good foods made by community organizations and restaurants.  We host artists from Freeburg to Arizona.  Some of the fine arts at our Art Walk include mixed media painting, sculpture, jewelry, pottery, fiber, glass and photography.



Please join us at 10:30 for a special ribbon cutting ceremony renaming the Kids Walk to the “Susan Nobbe Children’s Garden” in honor of our late, dear friend and strong supporter of Art on the Bluffs. We are pleased to recognize Susan for her positive influence and unwavering support of our Art Walk event, love of the arts and devotion to the children of our community.  Members of Susan’s family, and city and county officials will be attending.  After the ceremony your children can enjoy a balloon artist, face painting, bounce house, and several upcycling art activities at the Susan Nobbe Children’s Garden.



There is a Student Gallery that displays the best student art pieces from local schools, grades K-12.  As in the past we ask the public to vote for your favorite piece of student artwork.  Also there is a display that showcases some of the wonderful talent of our senior citizens.  A special highlight this year is the displayed art of members of the Art on the Bluffs organization.  Enjoy!



The Entertainment includes 2 venues this year.  One stage is at City Hall and one at Locust Street.  We are pleased to have both past performers and a number of talented new bands here including Trilogy, Fresh Burn and Sofa Kings.  There are talented individual actors’ groups and larger bands performing all day.  Come take a break and have a listen. 



So as you can see Art on the Bluffs, Inc. continues to draw from the region’s talented artists, both fine and performing.  Thank you again for coming.  We hope you enjoy your visit to Columbia and Art on the Bluffs.
