Spring Art Walk
The artists and venues
participating in Art Walk will be setting up
soon, preparing for a special weekend full of
artistic displays, music, activities, and food.
Held in Historic Carthage Square, Art Walk is an
event for people of all ages. This quarters
theme is Comics and Sequential Art, and work wil
be found from featured artist Sean Fitzgibbon at
UMB Bank on the Square. If planning to attend Art
Walk, The Carthage Convention and Visitors
Bureau says that these seven tips will help
attendees get the most from the event.
"1. Choose the Right Day
Art Walk begins on Friday,
April 13th at 6pm with Date Night, and continues
on Saturday, April 14th with Family Day. Before
making plans for the event, choose the right day
to attend. Fridays blend of art,
entertainment, and wine tasting is a perfect
option for couples and adults looking for fun
weekend plans, while the family-friendly
activities available on Saturday are great for
kids and adults alike.
2. Come Prepared for the Event
Art Walk is held in Historic
Carthage Square, so come prepared for an outdoor
event. Wear comfortable shoes, bring sunscreen,
and be sure to dress comfortably for the weather.
Venues across the square will have delicious food
and drink options available, so its also a
good idea to come hungry!
3. Bring Your Friends
People of all ages and
personalities love Art Walk, which makes it a
great event to attend with your friends. Catch up
with your best friend as you browse selections
from more than 20 talented artists, or visit the
wine tasting event with a special date.
Youll have a good time at Art Walk
regardless of who you bring, but the event is
more fun when you join some of your favorite
4. Chat with Artists
The artists who attend Art Walk
are passionate about their work and excited to
share it with new audiences. When you visit a
display, youll often find the artist near
his or her work along with some information on
the pieces. If you find a piece of artwork that
you love, dont be afraid to ask the artist
about the design or the meaning behind the work.
Of course, you should be respectful of the
artists time, as he or she will likely have
other guests waiting, but be sure to take
advantage of this unique opportunity offered by
5. Respect the Venues
The businesses and venues
participating in Art Walk do the community a
great service by working with this event. Without
their participation, it would be difficult to
find the space for artist displays and
activities! Be sure to treat all of the venues
you visit with respect. Be careful with food and
drinks, and be respectful of other patrons in
each establishment. With the cooperation of all
guests, everyone can have a great experience at
6. Have an Open Mind
When you visit an event like
Art Walk, youll encounter new styles of art
and expression, so its best to come with an
open mind. Though you may not be familiar with a
particular style of art, this event is a great
opportunity to gain exposure to new ideas and
modes of creativity. With more than 20 artists
showing work, there are plenty of opportunities
to view a diverse range of artistic styles. Try
to see a little bit of everything and avoid
judgments until youve seen the work
7. Know What You Want
Though you should aim to keep
an open mind about the artistic work on display,
its also okay to be aware of what you like.
If there is a particular style of art youd
like to purchase for your home, come to the event
prepared with a budget and information on
measurements so that youll know when you
find the right piece. Art is an investment, so
its important to choose a piece that you
really love. If youre not ready to purchase
anything at Art Walk, be sure to ask the artists
you admire for contact information so that you
can reach them in the future."
