The West End has always lent itself, quite naturally, to Arts & Entertainment with Live music, festivals and multi-media art shows. This month's 2nd Friday Artwalk is being held Friday, May 13th and on our very own Webster Street. Restaurants, bars, salons, and other retail spaces have joined respectable art galleries and studios in this once a month celebration of the arts. Businesses such as the Fireside Lounge, Cookiebar, Hairtech, 1400, WesCafé, West End Crepe and the newly re-opened Chicha Bistro have agreed to showcase artwork Friday 5/13. There will be over 15 craft vendors and live musical acts who will be setting up shop in front of some of the local businesses. The participation from Webster St. merchants join east end galleries & businesses, Studio 23, 3Dot Gallery, The Alley, Redux Studios & Gallery, and The Frank Bette Center for the Arts, Alameda Island Brewing, Lucky 13 & Vintiq to showcase artwork.
Jessica Warren, Wesley Warren, Sara Edge, Dave Sylvester, Sandy Russell, and Jack Gonzales are just some of the local artists who have been involved in the vision of this community event. They believe art can create and inspire any and all communities as well as empower them. With music, food, friends and family that enjoy art and entertainment, Alameda's 2nd Friday Artwalk is just one more way Alameda’s West End is becoming more lively and vibrant.
