This year on Saturday, July 5 from 10 am to 4pm, in Livingston Manor, NY the third annual Artwalk/Chalkwalk has more in-store artist displays on Main Street than ever before!
Of course we still have artists and artisans in niches and cool-de-sacs but if you want to beat the heat take a turn into the Catskill Art Society to see the latest show Artists Untamed, a Jury-Selected Group Show and watch Ann Higgins, CAS and NorthEast Watercolor Society member craft a fine watercolor.
Right next door take a lunch break at Madison’s restaurant and explore the mixed media art of Nina Zherg and be sure to stop at Morgan Outdoors to view Wendy Hollander’s famous floral artwork. Brandenburg Bakery will give you that extra spring in your step up Main to the LM Library; grab a book, take the kids and learn some origami from 11-1pm. Also on display until 7/31 is “Seasons”, Kate Hyden’s work. And on your way back be sure to stop at Ed Lundquist’s Studio to see his latest multimedia artwork. Don’t go by Susan Pascale at Mountain Bear and Yolanda’s Interiors or you’ll miss some beautiful acrylics. And be sure to give a round of applause to our strolling troubador Karen Hudson!
The Catskill Mountain Keeper appropriately is hosting photographer Lance Verderame’s work and with a yard full of artists and artisans Claire Coleman at Plunk has managed to produce two full rooms of a unique memorabilia installation called “Chuck” that you are sure to never forget!
Willow and Brown has the beautiful watercolors of Valerie Taggart, Main Street Farm has “Sus.Te.Nance” a group show curated by Elizabeth Ennis of the Outsider’s Studio and RM Farm hosts “Serial”, works in various media by artists Joanna Hartell, Andrea Brown, and Elizabeth Ennis.
Look for the masterful and local works of Donna Greenthal, Caroline Harrow, handmade jewelry by Beti Horvath and specialties by Deb Feld, handmade lampshades by Kathie Fitzgerald. Of course we are handing out the maps again and would we forget the kids ..NO WAY! Look for Chalkwalk again and sign your pint-size Picasso’s work up for an Artist Certificate and our YouTube Annual video.
