New Benicia Art Walk

Benicia is home to one of the most active and thriving art communities in the San Francisco Bay Area, with more than 200 artists, including painters, sculptors, stained- and blown-glass artists, printmakers and bookbinders, textile and ceramic artists, jewelers and multimedia artists. Benicia Art Walk presents the opportunity to experience this wide variety of art in Benicia while enjoying local cuisine, shops and entertainment.
 
With three dedicated galleries, several active studios and more than 15 establishments serving as hosts of rotating exhibits, the Benicia Art Walk offers an opportunity to experience the many facets of Benicia's art community, with something new for art enthusiasts of all kinds.
 
A colorful banner will designate each participating location. The self-guided tour of downtown Benicia's galleries and businesses will take place on the second Saturday of the month through 2012, beginning June 9.
 
A brochure containing a self-guided map is available at participating First Street locations. For more information, email BeniciaArtWalk@gmail.com or visit www.facebook.com/BeniciaArtWalk.
