First Friday Art Walk
The Old Mill District art studios and shops once again welcome First Friday Art Walk this Friday, December 2 from 3-6pm. The spirit of the season is in the air, and this week will feature a variety of festive artwork, one-of-a-kind ornaments, live music, as well as joyful songs sung by carolers roving the district!
Tumalo Art Co. opens Wonderland this Friday. The exhibit channels all things that move the artists to a state of wonder — snow shimmering on mountain peaks, lights twinkling on water, a bird balancing on a twig — see it on display throughout the month of December! Plus, Tiny Art Trees return offering wonderful, original small-scale pieces perfect for gift giving.
Little Artists Unite
Wild Child Bend is calling all little artists to showcase their creations during First Friday Art Walk this week! Art for the show must be dropped off at the store by Friday, December 1 at 1pm. Every kid who brings in art will get a special beeswax candle-making kit, too!
Spirits Soar in SantaLand
SantaLand is a magical place in the Old Mill District where your little sugarplums can meet Santa and the elves, and get their photo taken with the Man in Red every Friday thru Sunday from 11am-5pm until December 23. He’ll have his North Pole mailbox at SantaLand, too, so kids can drop off their letters before the big day!
SantaLand is located between Evoke Winery and Avalon Salon & Spa in the former Simply Mac space at 330 Powerhouse Drive, Suite 120.
