Event of the season — "Paint It Up Art Weekend"

“East Meets West” by Ginny Sykes

There are many reasons to explore a gem like Uptown (think art, food, architecture, and rich history). I recently explored the art scene in Uptown, as the murals are abundant and flourishing. I started at the Clifton Street Art Gallery to see the new additions since my last visit. The gallery offers a nice variety of art from several artists.

The perfect time to do YOUR Uptown exploring is during the “Paint It Up Art Weekend,” being held July 31 through August 2. The event is FREE and I know we all love that word now. Uptown Art Weekend will be one-stop shopping for art appreciators including 100+ works of art, art exhibits, live paintings, and interactive art for you and the kiddos.

    I would have liked a credit for the artwork that is your lead image on the Uptown story--"East Meets West" by Ginny Sykes.
    Hopefully you can correct this. It was on the plaque right next to the artwork.
    Thank you

  • In reply to Ginny Sykes:

    My deepest apologies for missing that, Ginny! It has been corrected and thank you for letting me know. I was flustered because I had to go into the street for a good shot and the traffic was crazy, on top of the fact that people kept walking by.
