In an annual sign of spring, Old Colorado City's First Friday ArtWalk will return April 7.
       A total of 14 shops/galleries are participating this year, according to Sharon Wolff, owner of the Hunter-Wolff Gallery and organizer of the event.
       In its 12th year, ArtWalk is held from April to December, on the first Friday of each month, from 5 to 8 p.m.
       People can visit as many locations as they like in a free, self-guided tour. Most offer refreshments, live entertainment and/or art demonstrations.
       The participating businesses this year are all within the historic shopping district, along Colorado Avenue from 24th to 27th Street. They are as follows (street number in parentheses):
       - 45 Degree Gallery (2528-B), Arati Artists Gallery (2425), By Design Gems (2520˝), Chavez Gallery (2616), Creative Co-Op (2513˝), Cucuru Gallery Café (2332), Febra's (2532), Hunter-Wolff Gallery (2510), Laura Reilly Fine Arts Gallery (2522), the LOFT Creative Space (2616), Running Wolf Gallery (2514), Squash Blossom (2531), Thunder Mountain Trading Company (2508-A) and Who Gives a Scrap (2518).

It is a family-friendly event that take individuals away from their daily responsibilities while offering knowledge.”
