Farmer Joe’s & Friends

All about Farmer Joe’s Marketplace

Art Up

This is the new mural at Farmer Joe’s. I love it. The colors are so vibrant and the subject is our beloved Dimond District. It’s painted on the outside of the store on the patio, along with the other must-see murals.

Around the corner, at the Dimond Café, Rita Sklar’s watercolors are on exhibit. Stop, have a cup of jo, and enjoy the free Wifi. It’s turned on and ready for surfing.

Further down the street at Paws and Claws, the front window has been painted by our local artist Amy Jo Karn. The window has a cat, dog, and rabbit frolicking in the spring grass. For those of you with pets, don’t forget this coming Sunday’s free class at Paws & Claws, Dealing with End of Life Issues. The class will be guided by Dr. Gary Richter, DVM, MS.

  1. I love the murals. Who was the artist?

  2. Teresa, thanks for asking. I talked to the artist one day as he was painting one of the earlier murals, and I had his name on a slip of paper. It was around her somewhere, but I could not find it last night when I was posting. I’ll have to ask at the store and report back.
