The Art Walk Brings Art Lovers to Old Town Tustin ~ October 15, 2016
Easels and artists of every kind flank El Camino Real and Main Streets in Old Town Tustin on the third Saturday in October for the annual Tustin Art Walk. The Art Walk gives local area artists the opportunity to display and sell paintings, photography, ceramics, sculptures, and jewelry. It also gives art lovers the chance to admire the beauty of the art and architecture in Old Town Tustin while enjoying music from local musical groups, professional and students, and refreshments. All of the downtown businesses welcome locals and visitors during the Art Walk.
TACFA is thrilled to be one of the sponsors of the Art Walk, as well as the Plein Aire and “Smile, Tustin!” contests. The Plein Air contest is open to professional and amateur painters with monetary prize awards up to $1,000. Entries must have been painted in the three days before the event and depict scenes or subjects from within Historic Old Town Tustin. Pictured is the 2015 Winner of the Plein Aire contest painted by Paige Oden.
“Smile, Tustin!” is a photography contest that is open to both professional and amateur photographers. The contestants are invited to take pictures anywhere in Tustin that capture something meaningful to them during a designated 3-day period of time; usually during the preceding Tustin Tiller Days, the first weekend of October.
