June 24, 2014 – The July Art Walk is traditionally a smaller, more intimate affair. Summer is in full swing, the university galleries are on summer break, and a few of our members take time off for family and vacations. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have some amazing artist shows, demonstrations, music and more!
In July, Art Walk bursts to life in three stages, like a fabulous Fourth of July firework! Due to the holiday, most of our venues will be closed on First Friday July 4, however, Fresh Galleryand Springfield Brewing Co. will celebrate Independence Day by welcoming the public with new shows. They and 10 other venues will open their doors on Friday July 11 for our official Art Walk, then, on Saturday July 12, Art Walk introduces a brand new event, Second Saturday.
Fresh Gallery features Artists Linda Passeri and Alan O’Neal for its July 4 Opening, while Springfield Brewing Co. presents Featured Artist Arabella Woods.
Like Art Walk, Second Saturday features art, music, art demonstrations and special events, but in a daytime, Saturday-stroll atmosphere perfect for art lovers of all ages. A separate press release with details on Second Saturday events will go out later this week.
