River's Edge Art Walk
Friday, October 10
5pm - 9pm, Heritage District
Absolutely Waterford's River's Edge Art Walk, now in its third year, will again transform the streets of the downtown heritage district into an impressive fine arts walk from 5 to 9 p.m., Friday, Oct. 10, 2014, featuring the work of more nearly 30 professional artists showing and selling their works throughout local businesses and community buildings.
REAW attendees can expect to view a wide range of fine art, including ceramics, woodcraft, water and oil paintings, photography, jewelry, pottery, fabric and more. In addition to a variety of area artists, the family-friendly fall event features live performances by talented musicians, trolley rides throughout the downtown, and a sampling of the best food and shopping Waterford offers.
As with previous years, art students from Waterford Union High School will get a taste of what it's like to exhibit and sell their art work during the Art Walk.
New this year, trolley passengers will get to learn a bit of downtown history, with a narrative provided by Absolutely Waterford officials who have been busy researching the village's earlier years.
The art walk returns to the community thanks to the goodwill of local sponsors and dedicated volunteers who believe in Absolutely Waterford's Main Street mission to revitalize the village's historic core, while promoting its arts and culture.
Artists are selected by a guild based on the samples they submit of their high-caliber works. We hope that the community continues to support this event by patronizing the downtown business hosts and featured artists. What a great opportunity to get a head start on your Christmas list and keep your dollars local.
Absolutely Waterford's third annual River's Edge Art Walk is set Friday, Oct. 10, 2014 from 5-9 p.m. Nearly 30 professional artists will display and sell works throughout shops, eateries and other storefronts within the village of Waterford's historic downtown. Live music at several locations and free trolley rides offered. Rain or shine!
