Huntington Village Art Walk

May 12, 2016 Comments Off on Huntington Village Art Walk Uncategorized

HUNTINGTON, NY- b.j. spoke gallery, is proud to be working with The Huntington Art Center, The Huntington Arts Council Heckscher Museum of Art, Huntington Historical Society, fotofoto gallery and Chelsea Studio and Gallery on the 2016 Huntington Village Art Walk. This free event takes place Saturday, May 14, 2016 from 4 – 8 pm.

This self-guided walk will provide a fun way to build more awareness of, and help expand, Huntington’s art scene. Currently the walk includes these seven locations; Huntington Arts Council, The Huntington Art Center, Heckscher Museum of Art, Huntington Historical Society, b.j. spoke gallery, fotofoto gallery and Chelsea Studio and Gallery. Each venue will be providing refreshments, opportunities to purchase raffle tickets and in some cases will have the artist(s) on site to discuss their source of passion and inspiration. Wendy Curtis of the Huntington Arts Center, who worked on putting the idea in motion, acknowledges that the concept may have been “tossed around” for years, but really resonated with her when a customer called looking for art to display in her new home. Not necessarily knowing where to go and being resistant to going into the city, Wendy told her there were great choices right here in Huntington Village. “So the spark was lit, and off I went to collaborate with our galleries and museums to create more awareness of Huntington’s art scene. Plenty of people know to come to the village for the restaurants, and we would like to help foster the arts and grow the art scene! In the future, we may grow the number of participating locations while still keeping it an intimate experience.” Wendy said.

Maps of the route, which can be completed in any order chosen, are available at each location as well as online here MAP of Huntington ART WALK.  Specific details on what each venue will be featuring the night of the walk will be also be available on facebook.  Check out the Art Walk Facebook page for updated information and a MAP!
