On Friday, May 4, visit The Squash Blossom from 5-8 PM for First Friday ArtWalk. Two Colorado artists: sculptor Mike Dwyer and painter Judith Babcock will be at the Squash Blossom to meet attendees and show their creative processes. Dwyer has an extensive background in the animal sciences, resulting in realistic sculptures. In addition to sculptures, he has created bronze doorknockers, a popular gift or home décor option. Babcock is known for her impressionistic and palette knife paintings. Her paintings are vibrant and full of color. Join us for the chance to watch these artists create their masterpieces and for free refreshments, wine, and community.
Come back on Saturday, May 5 to participate in the Library Art and Wine Event, featuring The Squash Blossom’s artist, JR Monks. Monks will be doing a demonstration at Pike’s Peak Library starting at 2 PM.
