27th annual White Street Walk slated for May 19

Wednesday, May 17, 2017

The 27th annual White Street Walk will take place from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, May 19, in the historic White Street neighborhood in Eureka Springs.

The street is the working address of several local artists who will welcome the public into homes and studios to view their latest works. They will be joined by more than 40 guest artists from the Eureka Springs area, who will show weaving, watercolors, jewelry, oils, pottery, stained glass and much more.

Among those displaying will be 27-year show veterans: weaver Eleanor lux, watercolorist Zeek Taylor and painter/sculptor Mary Springer. The three are the walk’s organizers and all by coincidence ended up living on White Street after attending the Memphis College of Art.

The event draws visitors to White Street who delight in experiencing a “hidden” Eureka Springs where they can visit with artists in their private spaces. Visitors get a sense of neighborhood in an area of town that is primarily residential.

One of Eureka Springs’ most popular events, the White Street Studio Walk is attended by those seeking art while enjoying the street fair atmosphere combined with refreshments and music. The event is free to the public.
