More than 120 artists have put down roots and blossomed at Essex Studios for the free BLOOM Art Walk. Many painters, photographers, jewelers, graphic designers and sculptors will showcase vibrant colors and floral images to highlight the spring/summer theme.
Get working in the virtual garden yourself at Studio 188, where DIY Printing and guests from Higher Level Art will invite visitors to help create a wall mural or T-shirt. Essex’s auction series continues in Studio 213, where Visionaries + Voices and Thunder-Sky Inc. artist Michael Weber will hold a silent auction of his abstract paintings. Weber likes to apply acrylic paint with a palette knife, creating swooshes and splotches that mimic an explosion of petals.
6-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. 2511 Essex Place, Walnut Hills, essexstudios.com.
