Final Art Walk of the season set for Friday

September 26, 2001

Several events are planned for the 2001 finale of Baldwin's Art Walk, including the popular "Cuppa Java" night, from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday.

The Baldwin Community Arts Council will have a sidewalk exhibit of a wide variety of styles and media, including photography, watercolor, prismacolor, pastels, mixed media, stained glass, jewelry and ceramics, on the southwest side of High Street. The artists will be available for discussion. Several businesses will be open with art work on display.

The Baldwin City Signal, 703 High, will show watercolors by Krista McClenahan. Discoveries, 719 Eighth, will show its collection of handmade jewelry and a broad selection of arts and crafts. Baldwin sculptor Matt Kirby will have his works on display at Therapy Services located on Eighth Street. The Art Affair, 622 High, will showcase the works of Doug Guess and Courtney Nelson.

While patrons are viewing all the talents from local and surrounding area artists, the sounds of the blues and jazz band "Free Lunch" will provide musical entertainment at Eighth and High streets.

"Cuppa Java" will be in the middle of Art Walk. The Baldwin Community Arts Council promotes "Cuppa Java" as a fund-raiser to help sponsor art walks, scholarships and other art related activities in the Baldwin area. The event offers handmade mugs, dessert and a beverage for only $6.

Local artists have been working for months to produce more than 150 mugs, which will all be for sale that evening.

There is no charge to attend any of the exhibits. For additional information, visit the arts council's Website at www.totoville.com/bcac or send an e-mail bcartscouncil@aol.com.
