Last weekend’s opening festivities for Art walk 2017 are behind us now, but the Art Walk continues through Friday, September 8th. The long Labor Day holiday weekend is the perfect time to take advantage of the “strolling galleries” in downtown Ridgefield and visit the many participating merchants. “Look for the posters in the front window and come on in,” says Pam Stoddart, Executive Director and Chair of Art Walk 2017, “or stop by the Guild on Halpin Lane and view a sample of each artist’s work, check out where you can find their work in town, grab a map, and visit the merchant for more.”
The Walk on Down show at the Guild at 34 Halpin Lane is the companion show to Art Walk with each participating artist exhibiting a work at the Guild. All artwork is for sale at the Guild and in the stores. If you see something you’d like to buy, just call the number on the wall tag and the Guild will take a payment over the phone. Or drop by the Guild to process a payment. The Guild gallery hours are Sun – Wed, 12-4pm.
“Thanks to our generous sponsors of Art Walk 2017: Books on the Common, Candlight Shoppe, Fairfield County Bank, Olley Court, Ridgefield Apartments, Ridgefield Bicycle Company, Rockwell Art & Framing, Sturges Brothers, and William Pitt Sotheby’s. They are wonderful partners in this event.”
“Ridgefield is such an arts-loving town and Art Walk has always been well-received. It’s a great way to celebrate the arts in an end of summer celebration,” said Pam Stoddart. Maps are available at all participating locations and at the Guild. For more information, visit rgoa.org or call 203.438.8863.
