Answers for Judy.

Art Walk is always on the last Sunday of January. You will be welcomed to participate. Art Walk is not a club, but an ever changing group of arists that change like the tide. The residency criteria is loose - just be living in La Manzanilla area ( including Bocca) at the time of Art Walk.

We hope that people will sign up to participate and pay the small fee. All the proceeds, including left over participant fees, are given to children's art programs. Those who choose to sell their work separate from ArtWalk are depriving these programs of potential funds.

We do not jury work, as we are non-judgemental. We have faith in people, in that they will bring the highest quality of work that they do.

Artists cannot, as you suggest, set up in the jardin. The Delegado will not permit it. Artists cannot set up on the street without a permit from the Delegado. Art Walk obtains a permit that applies only to registered participants.

We appreciate the suggestions about two-day events and a contracted route. Every year we have revisited these ideas and have chosen to keep it the way it is. In future, however, who knows?
