SATURDAY Brunch Reception
We’re mixing things up this month (sometimes we do that). We’re Brunching on a Saturday ...what? you say. Yes, on SATURDAY... January 18, 12-2pm
We'll sip warm beverages, nibble brunchy time snacks and you can visit with member and represented artists and hear about what they do and why they do it... you know, “art chat.” We'll even have a special art gift for the first dozen visitors.
This event is always free (though you do have to be 21 or over to enjoy any of those adult beverages). Non-alcoholic refreshments will also be served along with cheerful conversation. Did we mention free art?
February 5 - March 1, 2020.
Opening Reception: Friday, Feb 7, 6 - 9 pm
Our February show features the work of ceramic artist, Christopher St. John.
Scenes from December
December is always such a busy month. We made time, however, to make merry and share our holiday fun with you, our friends and patrons! Thank you for helping us enjoy the season and for helping to make our season bright!

Looking Forward, But First....
Here’s a Look Back...
Sidestreet Arts had a great year, thanks to you! Here’s a quick look back at just a few of our many events and some of our friends and represented artists in 2019. Thank you!
Off The Wall...
Looking back over the past year and all the events therein, my mind lands on “that moment” ... that singular beautiful, unexpected moment.
We’d decided to drive south for the day to see some of the fall trees in their splendid change of color. I had a rare weekend off, and our schedules, for once, managed to coincide. I offered to drive and so we packed a picnic lunch full of expensive cheeses, a summer sausage, and golden pears that were just coming into season; the weather was cool but not yet cold. We drove about an hour on backroads until I found a little dirt thoroughfare where there were pops of red and oranges. I drove slowly to avoid the dips and ruts and continued until we came upon a sudden burst of gold. Immediately, I pulled to the side and stopped the car. We just sat there, mouths open, overwhelmed by the brightest golden Aspens you ever saw. There was a dumbfounded silence. And there, in that moment, overcome with emotion, in my little beat up Volkswagen, we turned to one another and I asked if we could share ALL our dumbfounded silent moments together.
