Uptown Art Stroll

Diana Kersey
When folks talk about artsy communities in San Antonio, they always mention King William and South Flores/Lone Star, maybe Five Points or even La Villita, but they seldom remember Olmos Park Terrace. Truth be told, however, a diverse host of active artists/artisans (and their studios) are spread throughout the neighborhood. And this weekend’s Uptown Art Stroll presents the ideal opportunity to see for yourself — boasting 66 artists at more than 20 locations. While the website listed below offers a detailed map and other essentials, the area we are talking about is defined as “centrally located near the Quarry Market, just south of Basse Road between McCullough and San Pedro, bounded on the south by Dora.” If that sounds like quite the stroll indeed, don’t worry, there will be free pedi-cabs on hand to help you get smoothly and painlessly between locales (all of which will be marked with yellow and purple tie-dyed flags and signs). Just a few of the artists whose work we are excited to see include potter Diana Kersey, writer/visual artist Anel Flores and mixed-media artist Marcia Loew — but, honestly, part of the fun is the thrill of discovery.

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
