Friends of the Nyacks proudly announces ART WALK 2015—10th Anniversary.
The theme this year is “10 to the 10th power…a decade of art”
Art has the power to transform, to illuminate, to educate, inspire and motivate.” Harvey Fierstein.
This quote so vividly depicts the vision of ART WALK from the first event in 2006 through this year’s 10th anniversary. The artists’ world is without limits and has no boundaries.“Art” can transport us to places familiar or unknown regardless of the medium. The posterthis year is entitled “Mind Unlimited.” “The swirls represent all the billions of great ideasthat can bring us to the far reaches of the universe,” says the artistic photographer EugeneLagana. His entire exhibit is a study in macro photography with a wonderfully humoroustwist. Signed and numbered posters, as well as the original, will be available for $50 at p.ross, 89 Main St, Nyack.
This year ART WALK features the second Flash Sketch Mob. During ART WALK 2012, artistand writer Bill Batson invited over 100 artists to Nyack to join a flash mob of visual artists.Standing every twelve paces along both sides Broadway from Cedar Hill to Second Avenue,each artist worked for two hours rendering the opposite side of the street. This year,dozens of artists of all skill levels and ages will add to this visual atlas of our community bychronicling Main Street from the Gedney Street to Franklin Ave. Artists will gatherSaturday, June 20 at 10AM in front of Weld Realty at 4 Park Street to receive an assignment,and then proceed to Main Street to sketch from 11-1PM. The artwork will be exhibited in aslide show on a large screen at 9:15PM at Nyack Center, S. Broadway & Depew. Scans ofeach image will exist on a digital map created by Ben Falchuk. The eventual goal of the Flash Sketch Mob is to create a composite landscape portrait of our one-square mile village.To learn more visit billbatsonarts.com.
