#9. Angi D Wildt Gallery, 737 Broadway St., #2

Featuring rare watercolors by artists with signatures are illegible to the naked eye. One painting is clearly dated 1875. The other one is either from 1888 or 1889. This will make for an evening of interesting discussion and research during the Art Walk. Did the same artist paint them at different times of his career? Is one artist a student of the master? Dave Bartholet, local nationally recognized watercolor artist, was able to make some determinations.

#10. Blue Bond Art Studio and Gallery, 417 S. Holladay Drive

Featuring oil paintings and acrylics by Blue Bond, an accomplished Seaside professional artist whose specialty likes in portraits and wildlife. With over fifty years of experience, the artist teaches one-to-one classes in oil or acrylic to novices and experienced painters alike.

The art at the motel is curated by Chris Haberman.
