The 2008 Auburn Art Walk season is drawing to a close. Tonight marks the fourth and final in a season that kicked off in April. “It’s the last chance to go around and see a wide variety of art,” said Rosie Stilwell, a longtime Art Walk committee member. “I just hope everybody takes advantage of it, being the last one, and comes out to enjoy the Art Walk with their family.” Thirty locations throughout Downtown and Old Town Auburn have opened their wall space to local artists, and are opening their doors to the community between 6 and 9 p.m. tonight. A free shuttle service runs from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Art lovers will have a chance to take a closer look at creations by children, teens and adults, everything form acrylic paintings to exotic woods and even ceramic trout and salmon. The Auburn Art Walk also features live music, presented Thursday at three locations: Ludi Hinrichs and Paul Klempau, on the Promenade Building porch on Lincoln Way; Inya Eeya, a four-piece band bringing multicultural music, performs at the clocktower; and Suzanne Grace and Joan Stockbridge present a “Dance Me to the End of Time,” an eighth-minute performance of song and dance, at 7:15, 7:30, 7:45 and 8 p.m. at AHmbiance, 884 Lincoln Way, suite 30. Pick up an Auburn Art Walk map at the Arts Building, 808 Lincoln Way, or download a map at PlacerArts.org. Call (530) 885-5670 for more information.
