Fifth season of art walks in Middlebury

Posted: Updated:
MIDDLEBURY, Vt. -

The town of Middlebury is beginning its fifth series of art walks in that community this Friday.

Art Walk showcases the works of artists and craftspeople, architects and designers in the college town. It is produced with the help of a $2,000 grant from the Vermont Arts Council. There is no charge to the public. People wander from shop to gallery along the main streets for two hours on a Friday evening. There are both new and established artists.

"She left her job at Burton and took on design work. She has just launched and got rave reviews from print cards to gift tiles and her stuff is wildly popular," said Emily Blistein of Clementine's Store.

"Arts Walk has become a destination, an event people are drawn to. It's really great for the town of Middlebury," said Emily Findlay of Galerie Provenance.

"My very first show was during an Art Walk and because of that, people who would not normally come out to see my work came out in droves. So, it really gave me a lot of exposure," said T.J. Cunningham, an artist.

"We plan all of our openings around Art Walk because there's already a sense of activity and expectation and a little feeling of festivity here," said Gregory Sharrow of the Vermont Folklife Center.

The festivities in Middlebury starts at 5 p.m. this Friday evening and there are art walks all through the summer on the second Friday of the month.
