ArtWalk to fill 17 blocks of Little Italy this weekend

SAN DIEGO -- Art lovers are invited to stroll the streets of one of San Diego’s most iconic neighborhoods and enjoy works from the more than 300 artists that will be showing at this year’s Mission Federal ArtWalk, taking place Saturday and Sunday, April 27-28 from 11 am – 6 pm each day.

The art on display will primarily be from Southern California-based artists, but there will be a strong presence from the international art world as well, with submissions from Mexico, South America and Europe.

“People have come to expect high-quality art and we think it gets better every year,” said Sandi Cottrell, managing director of the ArtWalk. “We really work at the artist selection process to bring different and new artists, and the quality this year is going to be incredible.”

Among the artists showing is Annie Goldgewicht, who Cottrell said showed how organizers were representing a wide variety of mediums and styles. Goldgewicht combines ceramic work with basketry.

“She’s of Costa Rican descent and some of this relates back to artistry that’s done in her home country,” Cottrell said.

This year’s 29th annual festival will fill 17 blocks of Little Italy, located just north of Downtown along the waterfront. The free outdoor festival will also include live music, dance performances and an entire section devoted to children.
