Auburn’s Art Walk and Wine Tasting event comes to downtown on May 12

Historic downtown showcases Northwest artists, music and fine selections for Auburn’s Art Walk and Wine Tasting event on Friday, May 12.

The event is from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at many downtown businesses.

Artists will display and sell their original handmade art work in downtown businesses. Art includes acrylic/oil/water color paintings, mixed media, metal, photography, wood working, glass, wearable art and jewelry. A variety of art will be on display and for purchase from Art Spirit, created by inmates at the Washington State Penitentiary in Shelton.

The Auburn Valley Creative Arts gallery will host more than 30 regional artists, whose work will be shown in 14 venues.

The event is free, but wine tasting tickets are $15 presale and $20 at the event and include eight 1-ounce tastes and a custom wine glass.

Presale tickets are available through May 11 at auburnartwalk.com or at Corestar Pilates, 205 E, Main St.; Grocery Outlet, 102 Cross St. SE; and Zola’s Cafe, 402 E. Main St.

The day of the event, a walking map, wine tasting tickets, custom wine glass and ID check will be available at the information booths in the former Rottles building, 238 E. Main St., and the parking lot at the corner of East D and Main streets.
