Who didn’t want to get out last Friday night and attend the Woodland Park Arts Alliance – For Arts Sake Craft and Wine Tasting? A beautiful night offered guests an impressive art auction, delectable foods from ten area restaurants, a wide assortment of Colorado Wines, an array of Craft Beers, including two local breweries, a lively show by three local Starbucks baristas’, a delectable, alcohol free Fruit Mash-Up Bar, live art by well-known area artists, an impressive Samurai sword exhibition, and giveaways, upon giveaways, upon giveaways. TMJ Mountain Jackpot writer Rick Langenberg stated, “Over the years I’ve covered a lot of these events and this is the best turnout I have ever seen!”
Artist enjoyed the evening, some creating in a new environment, painting or sketching while bantering between other artist and engaging in on going conversations with the many event guest. Artist Jeff Ridlen said, “I didn’t imagine I could draw in this environment but I found out that I could and actually drew more than I expected”.
The Art Alliance board could not be more appreciative as plans move forward with the revitalization of Antler Alley, for the community and visitors alike, to utilize downtown public space.
