Make the most of the 80 degree weather this Friday with a stroll on the Logan Tabernacle grounds to see beautiful works of art. The Cache Valley Center for the Arts, which hosts Gallery Walks in even months throughout the year, is partnering with Logan's Summerfest Arts Faire to highlight 23 festival artists and artwork by Mountain Crest High School art students.

"This is a neat opportunity for Cache Valley to elevate the arts and provide increased exposure for local and guest artists," says Andrea DeHaan, CVCA's Arts Education Coordinator. DeHaan hopes to generate sales for artists, as well as create demand for additional Gallery Walks in the continuously expanding downtown arts scene.
Participants will be interspersed among 150 artists from all over the country; their booths marked with CVCA Gallery Artwalk posters. Map outlines will be available at the Summerfest Plein Air tent on the day of the event, and are available for download online at cachearts.org.
Enjoy unique woodwork, jewelry pieces, American West paintings, recycled glass panels, and finely crafted Marquetry furniture—just a handful of the mediums on display, which will include 2013 Summerfest featured artist Kay Homan, whose ranch-inspired watercolors have graced the pages of Art of the West magazine.
Summerfest is a free, annual juried arts festival which includes local food vendors, music, storytelling, a children's art yard and condensed theatre productions. The event takes place June 13–15 on Logan's Tabernacle grounds, located at 50 N. Main Street.
