It's one of our favorite nights of each month, when the art loving community of Steamboat Springs turns out, en force, to celebrate the local galleries' monthly exhibits.  From emerging young artists curated by K Saari Gallery to a 50 year career retrospective from famed photographer, Rod Hanna, this month's First Friday artwalk in downtown Steamboat should not disappoint. 

Intricate clay pieces will be featured at the Depot's Member Gallery and the Steamboat Springs Arts Council's SummerArt show is still available for viewing.  Walls throughout downtown will be studded with oils, watercolors, giclees and acrylics.  The sidewalks will be bustling with creative afficianados, wine glasses will be filled and a feast for the senses will be everywhere.
