The 2nd Friday Art Walk season kicked off this past Friday in Brunswick with a flourish. The All Species parade organized by Spindleworks got things rolling down Maine Street with a spirited marching band leading marchers sporting innovative and smile-provoking "species-wear." (As an unintended tribute to the All Species parade, I just finished a new soft block print, Don's Piglets.) The weather held up quite nicely and Art Walkers were rewarded with an expanded Art Walk including many pop-up artists showing a wide variety of art and wares. In my new studio location in the Lincoln Building, there was a steady stream of Art Walkers enjoying the evening. Outside my studio door, Paulus Fine Furniture set up a display of extraordinarily beautiful and artful chairs, tables and stands. It was quite an entryway into my studio. Finally, major props to my studio neighbor, Connie Lundquist, who worked purposefully with Five River Arts Alliance, area businesses and artists in setting up the Art Walk for this year. A job extremely well done!!
