A Visit to ArtWalk Carlsbad 2022

The 3rd Annual ArtWalk Carlsbad was held this weekend along Armada Drive overlooking the Flower Fields (not very exciting at this time of year since there are no flowers but a great view nonetheless) and the ocean in the distance.

It was a gorgeous day with clear skies in the upper 70s and, fortunately, with a nice ocean breeze. Over 150 fine artists showcased their creations, a diverse array of art work in many forms of media.  You can check out the artists and their creations here.

There was a good crowd, as expected, and the free parking was abundant close by in the adjoining corporate office park, at and near the Museum of Making Music.

There was a Kids' Interactive Area, wine and beer, live music, and plenty of food (a food truck and multiple booths).

We thoroughly our visit, with some artists being of greater interest than others. But you had to be very impressed with the quality and diversity of art on hand...something for every art lover! There were certainly many things we could have bought, but our collection has outgrown the space in our house significantly (a lot is in storage in our loft) and we were good...but it was tough to resist a few things we saw.

 

All in all it was wonderful to experience ArtWalk Carlsbad 2022, back after missing the last 2 years, and to indulge our passion of enjoying art!

Good morning Jeff,

I love events like this and so glad your Art Walk in Carlsbad is back! I'm even more excited to read you were able to attend and can see why from your photos the diversity and quality of art  was hard to resist. A beautiful community event!

So nice that you had a chance to attend, Jeff. If I'd been there my wallet would be much lighter right now... and I don't even have wall space left for more art!

I didn't get to check this out but I sure did enjoy my time in Carlsbad and was able to walk to Carlsbad Village each and every day.  When I would pass by Cafe Elysa it brought back great memories of a nice lunch there with you and John DL Arendsen

Good morning, Jeff.
This sounds like the kind of event I would very much enjoy. I have no artistic talents and admire those who do. I try to console myself knowing I have other talents that they might not.  LOL

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. 

You would enjoy it. And prior to ArtWalk Carlsbad they had a similar event every September called ArtSplash so there is quite the history. There are also several arts and crafts fair in our little town!

Hi Dorie Dillard Austin TX  IT was great fun and there was so much to see.

In retrospect I wish I had taken more photos, although many artists post signs to please not take pictures and I respect those wishes.

Hi Nina Hollander, Broker 

Ha ha, yep I get that. We still buy something occasionally despite the overflow of art work in our house. It's a passion and hard to give up. It was a great time.

It was a fun time with John DL Arendsen wasn't it, Brian England ?

Glad you enjoyed your visit - we're having a little bit of a heat wave now that you've left! But nothing compared to AZ heat!!

Hi Carol Williams 

I get that and feel the same. It would be hard to not be significantly impressed with what some of these artists do even if one has not talent in that arena.
