The concept of pairing artists with Haltom City businesses for an evening of exhibits worked so well last year that the city’s art committee, Art in the City, decided to do it again. Scheduled for for Thursday, June 6th from 5 to 8:00 p.m., the “Art Ramble” will include 11 locations and approximately 16 local artists working in a variety of mediums. From pottery to painting, those who attend will be able to enjoy a wide range of creativity. Attendance is free and auction items and a chance at door prizes will be available at most locations.
