3rd Saturday Art Walk brings people to downtown RosevilleBy: Anne Stokes / Press Tribune Correspondent
Roseville's monthly 3rd Saturday Art Walk had local art enthusiasts strolling all over downtown this weekend. Ten different venues featured a myriad of artistic mediums (which change each month) from regional artists to suit all kinds of aficionados and their tastes.
"We want to support our local artists and we want to expose people to a variety of different artistic media," said Natasha Casteel, City Librarian at the downtown library, where local Oakmont photography students showcased their works. "I think that having this at the library is another way to support our local culture here in Roseville. Just introducing people to artists of all ages is important to us, so featuring youth [artists] as much as possible is really important to us."
"Anything that has to do with art, the library wants to support that in the community," she added.
At the Blue Line Gallery, clay creations were on display. The gallery's third annual "Plates and Totems" invitational show features over 85 regional artists from Placer and Sacramento Counties. "It's a great opportunity for collectors of all types," said Blue Line CEO Julie Hirota. "Whether you like traditional, funk art, or some kind of quirky stuff, you're going to find what you like."
