The work of local artists will be on display and for sale Friday in downtown Baldwin City as the Lumberyard Arts Center hosts its final art walk of the year.

September's art walk will have coffee and baked goods, such as scones, muffins and coffee cake, provided by Jitters Java and Ice and the Baldwin City's Hestia Club, available for a donation to the arts center.

Vendors will include flower arrangements, photography, jewelry, paintings and pottery.

The Maple Leaf Quilt Guild will also have the opportunity quilt set up for guests to see. The guild will have raffle tickets for the quilt available and the drawing will take place at the Maple Leaf Festival.

Live entertainment for the art walk will be provided by the local band, Flight. The band is the winner of the Granada's contest, The Next Big Thing Tour. Flight will perform in the "lotatorium," which is the grass field just east of the Lumberyard Arts Center.

"We're hoping to get some people to come hang out and enjoy the music," art walk coordinator Jena Dick said.

Other activities are a craft table which will be set up inside the arts center as well as a sidewalk decorating contest. The contest is open to anyone and prizes will be awarded to the winner.

The art walk is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday at Eighth and High Streets and is free and open to the public.
