Trailside Attractions - Art House on State

Only a stones throw off the High Trestle Trail in Madrid is a peaceful spot filled with beauty and talent.  

Water colors, pastels, blown glass, pottery, textiles and photography can be found here.  All are created by local artists.  Art House on State has been in Madrid  since May of 2015 and is open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  Classes are available for those wanting to develop their creative talents.  

The High Trestle Trail Bridge is the subject matter to numerous pictures and paintings on display throughout the gallery.  It's a great place to find a gift for fans of the trail!

I enjoyed a quiet break from my bike ride and browsed until I found just what I had been hoping for.  A small picture of the bridge by Terry Dooley.  It fit perfectly in my bike bag and will soon be hung on my office wall.  Now I can enjoy the High Trestle every day!

Take some time off the trail to visit this Madrid treasure.   A bit of culture added to a bike ride is always a good thing.

Happy Riding!
