Downtown Woodland’s First Friday Art Walk on Oct. 5 will be part of a celebration of the monthlong “Artober” National Arts and Humanities month, in tandem with similar events going on throughout the Yolo-Sacramento region.

More than a dozen art galleries, businesses and restaurants will exhibit art and host live music and entertainment in downtown Woodland. All events are free and most of the exhibitions will be available for viewing throughout the month.

The ART FARM exhibition at Gallery 625 — at 625 Court St. — kicks off the monthlong agricultural celebration YoloArts hosts each year. The watercolors, photographs, oil and acrylic paintings, fiber and ceramic art on exhibit were inspired from the farm visits coordinated by YoloArts as part of its Art & Ag Project.

At 445 Elm St., Tech Knuckle Computer Sales and Service will host the computer graphics art of Woodland artist Kent Smith. He uses a 3-D computer program to create a “model” of fabric, assigning the fabric stiffness, gravity, lighting and wind that affects the model as it falls in “air.” The results are the same as natural fabric falling in nature.

The Rose Colored Glass Company, 720A Main St., is hosting “New Nation Under God Particle,” featuring the paintings of artist Marianne Ryan and the photography of Richard Breedon. This exhibition explores the relationship of art and science as cooperative disciplines.

At the center of the art walk, at 615 Main St., the acrylic dog paintings of artist Deanna Leveque will be on exhibit at Dixie’s Paws and Claws.

Additional receptions and viewings are planned at: Bargains 2 Benefit, 607 Main St., 530-668-1599; The Burger Saloon, 601 Main St. 530-668-2747; The Corner Drug Store, 602 Main St. 530-662-2813; The Cup and Saucer, 610 Main St., 530-402-1991; Dixie’s Paws and Claws, 615 Main St., 916-380-9367; Gallery 625 (YoloArts) 625 Court St., 530-406-4844; The Gifted Penguin, 716-A Main St., 530-668-8215; Mojo’s Lounge and Kitchen428 Restaurant, 428 First St., 530-661-0428; Oak Tree Antiques, 535 Main St. 530-681-1983; Red Oak Gallery, 725 Main St.#217 (second floor Oddfellows building); Rose Colored Glass Company 720A Main St. 530-666-0154; Tech-Knuckle Computer Sales and Service, 445 Elm St. 530-666-5900; and Sunrise Rotary Club of Woodland, 925-570-754.
