Gladewater’s Main Street Art Stroll slated for Saturday, August 11
The “Stroll” will get underway at noon and run through 5 p.m. with demonstrations, live entertainment, and 35 artists set up inside shops and businesses throughout downtown Gladewater.
GLADEWATER The Gladewater Main Street Art Stroll will “step out” on Saturday, August 11, in the historic Antique District where there is plenty of free parking and easy access. It will be a shopper’s delight for beautiful works of art and ageless antiques. Gladewater’s Main Street Manager and Board of Directors are proud hosts of the Second Annual Art Stroll.
The “Stroll” will get underway at noon and run through 5 p.m. with demonstrations, live entertainment, and 35 artists set up inside shops and businesses throughout downtown Gladewater. The artists and photographers represent some of the best talent in the East Texas area working in a variety of mediums and subject matter. Whether you’re the avid collector or just beginning to collect, there will be something for everyone.
9-year-old artist Abby Grace Townsend is selling her paintings to raise funds for her young cousin diagnosed with leukemia one year ago. You can visit Abby at the Gladewater Antique Mall during the Art Stroll, visit her Facebook page or email her at: email@example.com
An addition to this year’s events will be the Wine Garden to be located in the beautiful courtyard adjacent to Decorate Ornate at 202 South Main. Local vineyards have been invited to showcase their wines. This should prove to be very popular.
After the Art Stroll wraps up, you might consider an evening of entertainment at The Whisenhunt Center, 201 East Quitman, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Formerly the Church of Christ, this historic building has been turned into a state-of-the-art entertainment facility and art gallery housing both local and international artists. Shake Rattle and Roll will be the featured entertainment for the evening with Dale Cummings opening for the group.
The mission for the Art Stroll is to celebrate the importance of art in our lives and present it in a casual format for your enjoyment.
