Art Walk ready for Friday run
During June's Art Walk night Friday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in downtown Baldwin City, the Baldwin Community Arts Council will feature a display of three-dimensional work by several area artists, including pottery and jewelry by Caroline Tanner and pottery by Christy Carlisle.
Their work will be exhibited on the sidewalk near the corner of Seventh and High Streets. Work by a number of other area artists in a variety of media will also be shown in the downtown area, including at the Art Affair, Solomons Antique Gallery, 713 High, The Baldwin City Signal, 703 High, and Discoveries (a not so common market), 719 Eighth Street.
The Aardvark Gallery, 111 Sixth Street, will open with "All in the Family," a three-generation photography show with images by a mother, daughter and granddaughter. There will be alternative process prints by Mary Garvin, digital floral prints by Rachel Flowers and photographs by Makayla Flowers.
The Art Affair, at the northeast corner of Seventh and High, will feature a wide variety of local and regional artists.
Art Walk visitors will be treated to refreshments at the galleries and at the sidewalk show, plus musical entertainment by Bruce Humphries, the "big one-man band," who performs rockabilly music. Humphries' CD, "Giddy-Up-Go!," will be available. The performance, sponsored by the Baldwin Community Arts Council, is free and open to the public.
Carriage rides will again be available from former Baldwin residents Mike and Clara Glover, owners of Celebration Carriage Co. A nominal fee will be charged for the ride between downtown and the Aardvark Gallery.
The 2000 Baldwin Art Walk season runs April through October on the third Friday of each month.
