Cup-A-Java part of final Art Walk of summer

September 17, 2003

Friday night won't just be about art, but coffee and art.

Cup-A-Java night marks the final Baldwin Community Arts Council Art Walk of the summer. The annual coffee and art evening runs from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday in downtown Baldwin.

"It's probably the most popular Art Walk of the summer," Star Novak, BCAC spokeswoman, said.

Those attending the final Art Walk, Novak said, will not only see local area artists' work, but have an opportunity to purchase a hand-thrown pottery mug and have it filled with the beverage of their choice. The cost for the mug and beverage, plus dessert, is $6. The money from the pottery mug sales will benefit the BCAC and the programs the local organization supports.

The art on display throughout downtown, Novak said, will be a mixture of watercolors, photography, pottery and other art mediums.

Local cartoonist Gerard Arantowicz will be providing free caricature drawings for children in attendance.

The band Free Lunch will also be performing during Art Walk.

Art Affair, at the corner of Seventh and High streets, will be open. Printmaker James Muncie's exhibit of prints is currently on display in the Baker University student-run gallery. Art will also be displayed along the sidewalks of downtown and in several businesses.

Novak encouraged the Baldwin community to take advantage of the final Art Walk of the summer.

"It's definitely a fun, community event," she said.
