October 11th ArtWalk

5-8pm | Rain or Shine!

Enjoy a fresh "harvest" of talent this ArtWalk!

Cooler weather and shorter days mark the traditional Hoosier season of Harvest – the theme for this month’s ArtWalk. Reaping our fertile creative soil has yielded a “bumper crop” of talent for the Wednesday, October 11th ArtWalk. Patrons are invited to shop local, buy art and listen to live music along the way.

Enjoy the Season of Art!

  • Ellen Ridenour’s intricate botanical monoprints and colorgraphs will be at n. wirt design & gallery, 503 S. Main.
  • At Matzke Florist, 501 S. Main Street, beaded jewelry artist Robin Wright returns to the ArtWalk with a fresh harvest of imaginative (and very affordable) beadwork.
  • Commercial photographer Stephen Lewis of Elkhart will be premiering his recent collection of art photography, including dazzling foliage and dramatic waves crashing, at Rhonda’s Cake Cottage, 500 S. Main.
  • Glass-blower Beau Kyle of BKG Glassworks will be performing demonstrations at Edward Jones Financial Services, 227 S. Main Street.  Several of his glass creations will also be at Arts on Main.
  • A perennial ArtWalk favorite, Kenton Yoder, will display his evolving textural abstract paintings at The Black Crow on Main, 224 S. Main.
  • Secret Door games will host former People’s Choice Award winning painter Travis Culp.
  • Juxtapose Gallery, 208 S. Main will feature four Goshen College student sculptors.

    Music and More!

    • On Civic Plaza, Memphis Underground will perform (a re-match due to rain cancellation during the Sept. 13 ArtWalk).  The 8 piece group features Motown, Funk and classic rock with Steve Toepp on saxophone.
    • Arts on Main will host singer/ songwriter Megan Happel and offer a preview of the works of studio painter Christian Smith.
    • Other musicians include Don Kilgren, Paul Decker, Rex Ellsworth and Mike Keagle and Bob Lichty.

Family Friendly Fun & Dining

  • Kid’s crafts will be at three locations.
  • The Midwest Museum of American Art will have all six of its galleries open to the public with artist works selected for the 38th Annual Midwest Juried Regional competition.  Stunning variety from ceramics to photography, painting to metal sculpture.
