Sights and Sounds of Rail Walk

While attending the Art on Easy Street festival Downtown this Saturday, consider taking in the sights and sounds on the fringe as well, in the 400 block of North Lee Street.
Rail Walk Studios and Gallery will be open all day, with artists providing demonstrations of their techniques.
Rail Walk artist Jimmy Alston will spend most of the day behind his guitar instead of his easel Saturday. He will be playing several times during the afternoon, along with his band. Appearing with Jimmy in the last set will be jazz singer Rebecca Stinson and pianist Joe Ponds.
Performances will be taking place at 407 N. Lee St., the site of the Looking Glass Artist Collective’s future black box theater and gallery, and home of the newly formed Lee Street Theatre Company.
During the show, attendees are invited to bid on silent auction items and classes being provided by members and friends of the artist collective. These include works of art; handmade baskets; classes in yoga, belly dance and cooking; camp tuitions for kids; a “ladies night out;” music lessons and much more.
There will be a bake sale providing tasty treats to munch on during the show or to take home. Throughout the day, Robert Jones and friends will show kids how to make hats and flowers out of the Sunday comic pages and will be providing “tattoos.”
