Art Along the Rogue River

October 2 & 3 marks the eighth anniversary of "Art Along the Rogue." This celebration of local, young artists' talents is sure to capitalize on this weekend's great Grants Pass weather!   In its 8th year, Art Along the Rogue will feature dozens of national, regional, elementary and high school student artists creating huge pastel chalk drawings on “H” St in Downtown Grants Pass. The theme for this year's event is “animals”.

New to Art Along the Rogue in 2010 is a Tap Walk. For $25, participants over 21 years can taste the regions best micro-brews in eleven locations in the downtown area. Restaurants and pubs will also feature delicious foods to accompany the micro-brews from 2:00 p.m to 5:00 p.m. Tap Walkers will receive a commemorative pint beer glass. Tickets will be available August 24, 2010 at Elegance, 321 SE 6th St in Grants Pass or by calling (541) 476-0570.

Another new addition to Art Along the Rogue this year is a “Doggy Art Walk”. Sponsored by the Rogue Valley Kennel Club.  At 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, October 3, 2010 dogs of all shapes and sizes will be artistically costumed and paraded through the festival on “H” St. Prizes will be awarded to the most artistic doggy.

Very fun and it promises to be fantastic weather for outside activities this weekend!

  1. 19 year old Monica Burtley's portrait of a young woman in a beautiful white Grecian style dress was definitely the best in the 2010 Art Along the Rogue.

    The colors and realistic detail she put into her work was simply incredible to watch!
