Rosey Williams, the fashionable Rose of of Ramblin' Rose Upcycle, whose store has been featured here [Link], has come up with the First Saturday Indie Market on the 600 block. This was its second time, and considering there was zero media interaction (I found out about it courtesy of Matt Deterior) and no mail blasts, there was a good crowd and some of our best artists exhibiting.
This large 6' tall painting of a wolf by Sean Williams of Collective, graced the East end of the 600 block, signaling First Saturday Art Walk goers that they were entering an arts space.

I had the pleasure of running into artists and friends Moi & Melissa Loera, and their new bambino at the show.
On the right are artists Sebastian Coolidge and Scott Hillis pictured discussing the fine points of baroque aesthetics. Scott, who has been reviewed here, was live painting one of his buffaloes. Sebastian was riding his killer purple fixie.

Here's a glimpse of Reid's sketch, showing the drawing for this painting.
The Zen Glass tent/stand. Their tenth anniversary party was featured here a few days ago.
Pale Horse was in the show, here we see Chris Parks and his assistant, both of whom have been reviewed here before, selling t-shirts and affordable giclee prints of his work.
|Matt Deterior & his work|

|Frank Strunk III|
Frank Strunk III with some of his latest work. Note the stiletto steel shoes which are outstanding.
Seen by Ramblin' Rose Upcycle , a piece that was pictured here when it was being live-painted only a few feet from where it was being shown, a hungry Tibetan ghost (?) by artist/musican/friend Alex.
And, of course, there was music. This group filled the air with sweet vibes.
This First Saturday thing is a wonderful concept off to a great start. I spoke with Rosey and there's a lot more to come, changes that will make this an excellent destination/arts event in the area. Congratulations to the artists, viewers, and to Rosey for creating a vibrant new event with great potential.
