"Art & Sole, now in its 6th year, brings both art lovers and strollers to the historic Westerwood neighborhood. Yearly, on the first Saturday of October, participating Westerwood artists open their studios for an art show and sale where visitors can easily walk from place to place. The event’s mantra is “Art You Can Walk To,” given the dense population of neighborhood artists.
Part of the 17 Days Festival hosted by ArtsGreensboro -- the largest collaborative arts festival of its kind in North Carolina -- Westerwood Art & Sole features myriad artists at over a dozen different locations showing and selling art in a pleasing variety of styles. Painters, woodworkers, potters, sculptors, a fabric artist, and a photographer offer glimpses into their work processes and their ways of interpreting the world through art. Westerwood, with its concentration of artists and art lovers, continues to build its reputation as a lively local art colony.
Watch for the Art & Sole signs and balloons that mark participating studios; maps will be available at the artists’ studios. Check out the latest information on Facebook at www.facebook.com/westerwoodartandsole
