Thoughts of monthly events of the hugely successful kind were far from the minds of Chandler artists Sal Costanza and Ron Floyd when they enrolled the Chandler Art Guild as a participant in last November's Wind Down Wednesday, an affair sponsored by the city of Chandler.
"The city took notice of us and asked if we would be interested in making it a monthly thing," Costanza says.
Costanza says that the Art Walk was an immediate crowd-pleaser, and now draws up to 700 people each month. Its impact on downtown Chandler has been substantial. TZ's Market Place, a wine, cheese and deli bar, drew as few as 20 patrons on pre-Art Walk Wednesdays.
Those 25 pioneers have grown into a membership of 135, "and more are joining all the time," Costanza says.
Costanza often is asked, why Wednesday? Aside from the fact that the idea was born on that day, "our intention was to bring people downtown on a night when they normally wouldn't come," he says.
"Even those who don't stay open benefit because people look in the windows and see something they like and come back during the day," Costanza says.
It's certainly been a win-win situation for Guild members. Not only do they gain exposure for their work, but they sell it.
"I tell people to always bring their wallets because they're sure to see something they'll want to buy," Costanza says.
Commissions are brisk. A glass artist received an order for a large glass fountain worth several thousands of dollars. Jewelers have had visitors order one-of-a-kind items to be given to members of their wedding parties.
"Looking at it from the guild's view, the event has been hugely successful," Costanza says.
Not to compete with other existing ArtWalks," said Sal Costanza co-founder of the Chandler Art Guild.
"We admire what they [First Fridays] have done and are in talks with them about cross-pollinating our efforts," Costanza said.
"It will truly be a great event that you don't want to miss," Costanza said.
Chandler Art Guild co-founder Sal Costanza said he estimated at least 400 people attended the art walk, which is a collaboration between the guild and the Downtown Chandler Community Partnership.
"I've lived in Arizona 14 years and never spent time in downtown Chandler," said Sal Costanza, co-founder of the Chandler Art Guild, which is promoting the art walks. But attending a "Wine Down Wednesday" in November organized by the guild and KYOT radio opened his eyes.
"I was completely amazed with the businesses and stores in downtown Chandler," Costanza said.
Chandler artist Ron Floyd formed the nonprofit Chandler Art Guild last August with Costanza and his wife, Desi, also Chandler artists.
