Artwalk 2020 is ON TRACK!

Monday, September 21st, 2020

Alpine’s 27th Annual Artwalk, on November 20-21, will proceed with a new line-up, new hours and a focus on being a safe, largely outdoor event. See what changes we’ve made to insure a safe event.

Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth streets will be closed, with art vendors set up outdoors from 10 AM-6 PM. The Artwalk organization purchased 20 10×10 exhibit tents with sidewalls for security. Art vendor tents will show on Fifth and Sixth streets, and Alpine’s Gem and Mineral Show will exhibit on Fourth Street. Food trucks will again be in the Union Pacific railroad depot parking lot, but separated more than in the past. There will be outdoor live music for attendees to enjoy, but there will not be any official Artwalk activities after 6 PM. All official locations will be responsible for complying with Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s guidelines that might be in effect at the time. Each location will have a maximum occupancy, and there might be delays.

Kiowa Gallery on Holland Avenue will host the official Alpine Artwalk booth, where t-shirts, posters, coffee mugs, and other items will be available for purchase. At Kishmish Plaza, Alpine Public Library will hold its annual silent auction benefitting the library. Donations from all official locations and artists will be on display from 10 AM-6 PM, Friday and Saturday.

This year’s honored artist is Tim Roberts, who exhibits his work at Catchlight Gallery in Alpine and The Rare Find in McPhearson, Kansas. His work will be featured inside Trans-Pecos Bank and in its parking lot.
