The new Vallejo Art Walk, every 2nd Friday of the month at 5pm, brings together the galleries of downtown Vallejo's Art District, covering 6 blocks of downtown Vallejo's Art District with a fantastic display of light and color! Swirling through the atmosphere after a quick stop enjoying the bountiful light of the evening's full Moon, psychonautical adventurers Dr.G. & MisD touch down for a landing in the Mothership's Hover Rack, feeling pleased as the love vibrations emanate in the atmosphere, and by all the free parking in Downtown Vallejo!
Having arrived on time (after the crowds left), Dr.G. & MisD entertain themselves with the gallery directors along the art walk, asking them how the evening went, looking at the decor, listening to the music, and having a grand-old time!
Everywhere, galleries had seen constant numbers of visitors, some in their own space crafts, others in their tulpa forms (Downtown Gallery space director Bill Bloom at 906 Marin Street, was seen in his cat form minding the business while Bill Bloom as himself was making an appearance at the cat-party in the IntegreTea!). The Hub Vallejo gallery, and the Art is Zen community culture center, provided essentials in the acoustic field, spreading awareness that Something Was Happening, and it is hip, and only Vallejo has this vibe! Check it out as we tour many of the galleries opening up shop for a full-moon event (not all are shown here, as there is so much to visit on our journey, we could not fit an entire itinerary on one flight!):
