"Its free, people come downtown, they come in here, they go to other galleries on the commons, so it's a lot of fun," says Jane Dennis, Co-op member
The walking tour is not just meant for artists, it is a completely non-exclusive community event.
"The community of people, and we do get tourists a lot...are just loving to be out and about..hopefully the weather is good and it won't be pouring..but people do come out," says Janet Byer Shermans, Co-op Member
All ages are encouraged to participate and enjoy the various types of art which will be showcased..tour members even have a chance to talk one-on-one with the artists.
"I tell people to come into the gallery, especially with kids and tell the kids to find something you like, find something you don't like and let's talk about the art...it's a way to connect with people," says Dennis
