A Feast for the Eyes

Art Walk features more than 30 artists

Posted

The Art League of Montgomery County hosted the 10th annual Art Walk through downtown Crawfordsville on Saturday. The event featured more than 30 artists displaying their works for public view.

Participants followed red balloons between locations and peered into storefronts for a peek at the artists’ creations in different mediums. 

The event was a huge success, and many enjoyed taking in the vast array of paintings, sculptures, pottery, photography, mixed media and more.

Crawfordsville High School student Rebecca Bailey showed her work at Joshua Cup. She loved seeing what other artists were doing and their perspective in their work. 

Stacie Cook, who shared space with Bailey, loved having the opportunity to highlight her work and connect with other artists locally. 

Athens Art reported considerable number of visitors and sales for the day. They also were able to share the popular class offerings to the community and celebrate their mission of bringing art to the community. 

Longtime Crawfordsville artist and owner of The Green Street Gallery Jerry Smith also reported an increase in visitors. 

“The Art Walk brings new people into the studio that otherwise might not come in,” Smith said.

His oil paintings and watercolors were certainly a crowd favorite.

Artist Tom Slack likes to focus on “the glow” of shiny reflections in his work. His painting of fresh tomatoes and carrots were certainly a feast for the eyes at this event. So much so that visitor Tom Turner from Wisconsin said just looking at it made him long for a meal straight from the garden.
