Oshkosh, Gallery Walk, Art Walk

Art Walk, Gallery Walk, whatever you want to call it is this Saturday 6-9pm, the October 2006 edition. The first Saturday of every month, certainly an out of mall experience. If you have questions for politicians keep your eyes peeled. You will get the chance to ask them in person. This is a low key event that gives everyone a chance to see artwork, visit friends and neighbors, and enjoy a crisp fall night.

The Oshkosh Public Library will be open for the Art Walk. Not the regular entrance but the Washington Street entrance by the lions. A photograph collection: "Barns of Winnebago County" is the feature under the dome. Michael Cooney is the photographer.

Twenty some galleries will be open Saturday night and maps will be available at most of them. If you don't see one please ask.

Fall is a favorite time of year for me. The cooler air, the crunch of leaves underfoot, and early darkness. It's a bit mysterious, has a foreboding aura.

I have two favorite books to mention:

They are bone-chilling for fall reading. You'll get up and double check to see if your doors and windows are locked. The second one is takes it's title from the Shakespeare lines:

By the Pricking of the Thumbs, Something Wicked This Way Comes.
