Gallery Walk ’22

How will you do Gallery Walk?

WEATHER UPDATE:

Gallery Walk is still happening this Friday… just the “inside only” version! So grab your galoshes and raincoat to take in the art that is all around us. There will be no street closure or Harmony Lot closure because of the forecasted rain. This means no Market, block party live music, community table and food trucks. But don’t worry they will be back next month.

Hooker-Dunham Theater & Gallery hosts an art auction with Vale Burns. You will see a collection of encaustic and embroidered pieces that combine science and art like you have never seen before. We love Vale and are excited for her to be showing in town again!
Here are some highlights:Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts exhibition opening and artist reception is with Larry Simons: Live It Up: wood and mixed media assemblages and sculpture created “…from whatever I find”. This is a homecoming exhibit for Simons, past owner of A Candle In the Night and present home of Mitchell-Giddings.
Stop by Harmony Collective to see the beautiful work of Kathie Capara whose art is a creative response to life and the world around us. Stop by The Collective where Joselyn Sullivan will be showcased. This body of work is inspired by an alternative counter-culture fascinated with nature’s dark side. It began with the annual artistic, and cultural event “Inktober” and continued as an examination of the ink medium, mark making, and dark imagery.

Stop by Harmony Collective to see the beautiful work of Kathie Capara whose art is a creative response to life and the world around us. And HatchSpace will be popping up in the old Malisun storefront off of Harmony Lot. Go check them out!
Also there will still be live music inside the Centre Congregational Church, 193 Main St. and gallery #7 in the Gallery Walk program.

With more than 200 volunteers, over 300,000 meals and many many pounds of Vermont produce and products the Everyone Eats continues to serve!

Statewide the many partnerships have generated over $22 million in revenue for Vermont restaurants who in turn have made prepared 1.8 million nourishing meals highlighting ingredients from VT farmers and food producers for neighbors experiencing food insecurity. This program is only possible because of the countless individuals who have stepped forward to help one another in times of need.
