If you’ve every driven down Main Street on the second Friday of the month, you probably noticed tons of folks out and about. Check out the March 14 second Friday art walk, and use this as a guide:
1. Muse Gallery
A community cooperative effort, Muse features the works of dozens of local artists in its spacious gallery. At any given time, check out nature photographs, glassware and fine art paintings—it’s a one-stop shop for all types of art. 356 Main St., 303.678.7869
2. Bead Lounge
Check out unique jewelry made by local artists—and make your own creations, too. A little hint for the gentlemen in the crowd: A necklace from an artist is a unique gift that’ll make you look as if you spent hours searching for it. 320 Main St., 303.678.9966
3. Old Firehouse Art Center
Serving downtown Longmont for more than 20 years, Old Firehouse puts on six of the best local exhibits available each year featuring local, regional and national artists. 667 4th Ave., 303.651.2787
4. Dwayne Wolff Gallery
During special Old Firehouse events—gallery openings, art walks and studio tours—head upstairs to see the works of Dwayne Wolff, an oil painter who considers himself a realist, or three other local artists who have studios above the gallery.
5. Great Frame Up
Sure, it’s a frame shop. But you’d be missing out if you never peeked inside to see what else this large shop offers. Each month, Great Frame Up showcases the works of 10 to 25 local artists. Also check out events such as a Lillian Kennedy Painting demo as part of the Longmont Artists’ Guild monthly meeting. 430 Main St., 303.772.7293
6. D. Bruce Bennett Celtic Art
D. Bruce Bennett, inspired in large part by his wife’s Scottish heritage, produces original acrylic paintings with a Celtic kick. He works out of his home just off Main—his work is online. There you’ll find paintings of castles, turrets and landscapes. 303.776.2685
Also: Check out rotating displays such as the “Return to Route 66” through March 9 at the Longmont Museum (400 Quail Road, 303.651.8374), and the Second Friday Art Walk each month, a great gathering in Old Town featuring tons of local artists.
