Art Walk is a downtown event celebrating the arts. For 23 years, this free event transforms our downtown into a unique and vibrant self-guided walking art gallery. The Art Walk allows artists to share their talents while enriching the lives of our community. The 2016 Art Walk will be held over the first two weekends in June: Friday, June 3rd- Sunday, June 12th.
As in the past, art work showcased will include paintings in a variety of mediums, fabric art, woodwork, pottery, metal work and sculpture.
New this year is the inclusion of:
Digital Arts - Digital Art includes images/animation/film/photography in which digital media or technology is used to enhance or blend the images in a way to produce a new image. There will be several monitors in store front windows dotted throughout the downtown to showcase this form of art.
Language Arts - "Art" is a way of communicating. Language arts are a powerful tool for communicating ideas, beliefs, and feelings. We want to encourage and honor this art form by including it in the Art Walk this year. Displays will include poetry, short stories, essays and word art.
Come enjoy the beautiful artwork and celebrate in our beautiful downtown. The two Saturdays during Art Walk will include face painting, music, art demonstrations, and artist receptions. This is a fun family event for all ages.
