OB Art Thing, the first in a planned monthly series celebrating the arts, kicks off in Ocean Beach on Thursday, Feb. 16.

A free self-guided, family friendly walking tour of shops, galleries, and businesses, the event will be held on the third Thursday of each month from 5 to 9 p.m.

The monthly walking tour will showcase a variety of local arts including paintings, photography, ceramics and sculpture, as well as music and performances.

“OB is fortunate to have so many venues that support local artists, so it makes sense to have an art walk every month,” said Catt Catterton, event organizer and owner of ArtBox, an art store and gallery in OB that also offers classes.

“This is an opportunity for the community to come out, celebrate, meet local artists and business owners, and maybe even participate in a lesson or workshop,” said Geoffrey Plagemann, fellow event organizer. Geoffrey and his wife Emma own Checkerboard Studios.

Participating businesses on the tour are invited to extend their hours for mingling and shopping. Attendees are encouraged to stroll, try something new, pop in and out of stores, and grab a bite to eat at a local restaurant.

OB Art Thing is supported by Ocean Beach MainStreet Association. For more info on being an Art Thing host venue or exhibiting work, contact geoffrey@checkerboardstudios.com or artboxofoceanbeach@gmail.com. To learn more about OBMA and Ocean Beach, visit www.OceanBeachSanDiego.com.
