The streets of Ridgefield will come alive during Art Walk Ridgefield when restaurants, businesses and cultural venues will showcase the work of fine artists in windows and on shop walls. This free, three-week festival will include paintings, drawings, works on paper, photography, digital art & sculpture, and is open to artists from across New England.
Art Walk kicks off on the evening of Friday, August 22nd, when downtown merchants host opening receptions with their featured artists. Live music and performance art will showcase local talent from the area. The celebration will spill onto the sidewalks on Saturday, August 23rd, with more live music, raffles and live demonstrations from participating artists.
“This event is a resurrection of two previous art walk events,” says Pamela Stoddart, a board member at the Ridgefield Guild of Artists. Ms. Stoddart is a driving force behind Art Walk 2014. “For some time, local artists have wanted to bring back this event. It’s a wonderful way to draw visitors to our town and highlight amazing local talent at the same time.”
Selected artists will also exhibit a work in a special festival-long exhibit, “Walk on Down” at the Ridgefield Guild of Artists.
Art Walk Ridgefield 2014 is being organized by the Ridgefield Guild of Artists and the Ridgefield Arts Council. For an artist application, please visit rgoa.org. For additional information, please email email@example.com or phone 203.438.8863.
