City marks 2 years of art walk

HUNTINGTON - Huntington’s Art Walk will celebrate its second anniversary from 5 to 9 p.m. Tuesday.

The event turns local businesses into art galleries with visiting artists from April to October along Pullman Square — Third to Fourth avenues.    

Photographers Chris Hayes and Chris Sammons helped organize the monthly event this year.

“Our wish is to see it grow to the point that individual locations are not able to contain the talent and it spills over into the entire downtown area,” Hayes said. “We have several ideas this year we are going to try, including every week we are featuring artist of the week on our Facebook page. We have also created a GoFundMe account to hopefully be able to purchase signs and possibly decals to go outside of the business during the art walk.”

To donate, visit gofundme.com/Huntingtonartwalk.

Everyone is welcome to display art during the art walk, including traditional and nontraditional artists in painting, photography, sketch artists, jewelry makers, clothing, pottery and furniture.

“We’re also very interested in performance artists, such as musicians, mimes, Mideastern dancers,” he said. Artists need not reside in Huntington to participate.

Among the participating businesses for the art walk this year are Empire Books & News, The Pottery Place, Watercolors Dreams Gallery and Art School, Le Bistro Huntington, Mug and Pia, Adell’s Antiques, Simply Whisk, Backyard Pizza and Raw Bar and Holiday Inn & Suites.
