The second Friday of the month, downtown Excelsior Springs holds its Second Friday Art Crawl. Artisans from all walks and venues participate throughout the historic downtown district.

Each month I feature an artist and often have a musician performing at my studio at 109 E. Broadway throughout the event. The Crawl runs from 5 to 8 p.m., and many of the stores offer wine, cheeses and finger food for visitors. My shop is open during the Crawl and guests are encouraged to enjoy the music, meet the featured artist and enjoy his/her creations, browse my store and feel free to shop to your heart’s content!
