Those who missed the opening ArtWalk 2019 receptions are in luck: venues for the Pend Oreille Arts Council’s 42nd ArtWalk will host another round of receptions Friday, July 26.
The receptions, held throughout town from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., include complimentary food and drink, live music, and the chance to meet and mingle with ArtWalk artists.
“There is a fun community atmosphere about walking from venue to venue with friends or visiting relatives, enjoying the music and refreshments, and getting inspired by the artwork,” said POAC Director Hannah Combs.
Apart from the receptions, ArtWalk is a summer-long event that officially kicked off June 21. Participants can visit any venue during business hours to view ArtWalk pieces and have their ArtWalk passports — available at any participating venue — stamped. Completed passports, containing 10 stamps from various ArtWalk locations, can be returned to the POAC office before Tuesday, Aug. 30 for the chance to win POAC Performance Series tickets and more.
No matter how art seekers approach the second half of ArtWalk 2019, Combs said there’s plenty to take in.
“There are about 100 artists each year displaying almost 1,000 pieces of art, so you really could explore the exhibits all summer,” she said.
