Dough Dough Bakery, 8 North Holladay Drive
Art Walk arena featuring resident artist Scott Colin Johnson. Although Scott C. Johnson’s landscape studies are rooted in en plein air painting, a French term meaning to paint outdoors in the natural light. Early-on Johnson began to add the little touches that rouse the imagination—the faint treetops that indicate a valley beyond the hill, or the tiny glint of water that tantalizes over a grassy dune. These hints at an unseen landscape beyond the one we see were an introduction to his dream world.
The Whet Spot, 12 N. Holladay Drive
The Whet Spot offers a relaxed friendly (adults only) atmosphere, where patrons can catch up with old friends while enjoying craft beers, ciders and wines. No minors permitted at any time. Featuring the art of pouring with twenty rotating taps for craft beers and ciders, a Growler filling station and offering wines by the glass.
