Second Saturday – Suburbs Style!
There’s nothing better than experiencing the Second Saturday Artwalk downtown, but if you’re looking to change up your routine and visit some new galleries, check out Old Fair Oaks Village.
Located where Fair Oaks Boulevard meets Sunrise Boulevard, Old Fair Oaks Village feels like taking a step back in time. All of the galleries, restaurants, shops and businesses are situated around two parks – Village Park and Plaza Park – as well as an open-air theater known as the Plaza Park Ampitheater. Chickens run freely as you cross the streets, passing one historic-looking building after another.
This Saturday, don’t miss the following Old Fair Oaks Village galleries that will be open for Second Saturday:
New ArtWorks Gallery at 10239 Fair Oaks Blvd.
I have a special reason to visit New ArtWorks Gallery this month. My sister will be exhibiting a new collection of paintings titled “Saturated Color”!
Chroma Gallery at 10030 Fair Oaks Blvd.
Phill Evans Studio and Sculpture Park at 7958 Entrance Street
CJe’s Art and Fiber Printing at 10239 Fair Oaks Blvd., Ste C
Old Fair Oaks Village also sports some wonderful places to eat, drink and be merry. All are within easy walking distance of each other and the galleries. Feed yourself, but according to the signs – don’t feed the chickens!
