Look for the Red Dot
This October Silver City will honor local artists both from Silver City and surrounding areas. The Silver City Art Associations’s big Red Dot Artfest weekends are October 7, 8 and 9 and October 13, 14 and 15.
The event offers food, fun and fashion. On the first weekend, galleries open with special shows, receptions and exhibitions. Expect music in the galleries and on the streets. It is planned to be a great way to celebrate and enjoy all that Silver city has to offer.
Among the special events will be a paint out for plein air painters, with prizes and sales opportunities.
The grand event is the Art Couture Fashion Show on October 8 in the Seedboat courtyard. This was the biggest event of the 2016 Artfest. Tickets do sell out to this event.
On the second weekend, tours of the artist studios throughout the town and across outlying area will be offered. Studio tours are an opportunity to meet and talk to local artists about their skills, and get a look at their working environment. For more information, visit silvercityart.com. ◄►
