Friday May 17th 2013 will mark the 23rd year of the White Street Art Walk. From 4 – 10 p.m. explore the art on White Street, less than a quarter mile from our Bed and Breakfast. White Street is located on the upper Historical Loop between Kings Highway and Prospect streets in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
Historic White Street is the working address of several local artists who will welcome the public into their homes and studios to view their latest pieces. These residents will be joined by more than forty guest artists from the Eureka Springs area, who will show weaving, watercolors, jewelry, oils, pottery, stained glass and much more. Admission is free.
The White Street Art Walk has a block party atmosphere with art, refreshments and music. Adding to the carnival atmosphere, street musicians meander White Street, providing entertainment and adding to the fun. Don’t be surprised if you see a few folks dressed in costumes to tour the homes and enjoy the art work.
History of the White Street Art Walk
Over twenty years ago the neighbors of White Street were discussing that many of the artists in their circle of friends attended the Memphis State University College of Art. Four of the artists decided to start the gallery art walk that year. The event grew year after year; now, people come from all over the United States to attend! Zeek Taylor and Eleanor Lux were two of the artists in this original group.
Zeek Taylor is now the current chairperson for the Eureka Springs Mayor’s Art Council. The co-chairs this year of the White Street Studio Walk are Eleanor Lux of Lux Weaving Studio, Zeek Taylor of Taylor/Titus Home Studio and Mary Springer of Willow/Spring Gallery/Home.
