After hearing so much about the FAT Village Art Walk this year, I finally took the drive up to Fort Lauderdale after enjoying sushi with my friend Norma (who prefers to take photos).
The FAT Village involves great art and a short walk to mingle with artists meaning more time in the studios that truly interest you. The spaces are actually artist studios, which makes this different than a "gallery art walk." The friendly artists share their creative spaces with visitors as everyone mingles. All of the studios are so close to each other, neither Norma or I felt we had much of work out after dinner!
I wish the FAT Village was closer to my home! The studio spaces are comfortable, even the small ones seemed spacious, and all the doors lead out to the street. As an artist, I am drooling for the spaces...but, I am extremely grateful my wonderfully private and in-my-home studio.
