Ketchums Gallery Walk nights are a wonderful combination of
aesthetic experience, social gathering and a warm, pleasant walk through town. We live in
a unique place in that we can enjoy exquisite art in a small town environmenta sort
of Carmel by the mountains.
On Friday Aug. 4 from 6 to 9 p.m., the art galleries of Ketchum will open
their doors for the third gallery walk of the season.
Within the wide range of styles and media on display will be mysterious
oil on canvas landscapes by Ann Kobdish at Jan Wilson, solemn "window"
photographs that have a very pensive quality by Bing Wright at Ochi Gallery, and Theodore
Villas vibrant paintings of Native American artifacts at Broschofsky Galleries.
Zantman Art Galleries, a new gallery in town, will offer its first solo
exhibition of nationally renowned sculptor and painter, Norman Foster. Another gallery
that has not traditionally been open during gallery walk, Davis Gallery, will open for a
show of Gay Bawa Odmarks monoprint works and Maria Leuchis one-of-a-kind bags.
As a final enticement, be aware that at almost every step along the way
one can find fine wines and delicious hors doeuvres being offered by the galleries.
From goat cheese and Greek olives to Silverado Chardonnay, one is bound to find something
to soothe the soul.
