It is about this time of year that Louisville really starts to wake up and soak in the sunshine. While we may still see some wet snowflakes arrive later in April here in Northern Colorado, the calendar is full of amazing outdoor events. At LRA, our community events are small, but inviting and we hope you will attend our May Art Walk. 

On Friday, May 4th LRA will be proud to open its doors for First Friday's Art Walk and and feature the amazing art work of Ms. Merry Slade's Louisville Middle School art classes. We will deck our walls with a dozen pieces from wonderful LMS artists who worked on an "Open Composition" theme painting with acryllic. We can not wait to share them with our visitors. Join us for complimentary wine, beer, soda and snacks while you view our special collection and the many other Main Street Art Walk sponsors.

Date: Friday, May 4th, 2018
Time: 6pm - 8:30pm
Location: LRA Offices at 815 Walnut Street in Louisville

About Merry Slade: I am an art teacher at Louisville Middle School, where creativity and purposeful learning go hand in hand! I have always been passionate about creating, teaching, and learning about art. Before becoming a Pirate, I graduated from Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado.  I obtained my bachelor's degree in Art Education and practiced a variety of art mediums including pottery, photography, sculpture, drawing, painting, metalsmithing, and more. Although I adore sculpting stone, I enjoy all forms of creating! When I am not teaching or creating art, I love spending time with my husband and daughter and my two rambunctious dogs and exploring the great outdoors!
