5th Annual River's Edge Art Walk
Friday, October 6     4:00 – 9:00 pm

    Absolutely Waterford is excited to bring outstanding fine arts to the Village again this year. Fine art creations of 30 local and regional artists will be displayed and available for purchase in twenty-three downtown businesses and community organization locations. This free event is sponsored by Runzheimer International and Fluegge Optical. 
   Art Walkers will be treated to jewelry; photography; ceramics and pottery; paintings in oil, pastels, watercolor, and acrylic; fiber, weaving, and wearable art; metal sculpture; mixed media, and digital art. Many favorite artists from last year are returning, with a healthy mix of new talent this year.  
    Several businesses will also host musicians during the Art Walk, including: Jim Bergles (guitar, vocals), Lena Schaal (easy listening piano), Sean Cranley (guitar, mandolin), Rich and Ruth Schwartz (Irish music) and Dave Glynn (singer/songwriter). 
Carrying on a special Art Walk tradition, an old-fashioned trolley will convey shoppers up and down the Art Walk route with long-time Waterford resident and historian, Bob Gariepy, on board as Sam Chapman, one of Waterford’s first settlers.  Bob will share stories and anecdotes about Waterford’s unique people, buildings and history along the way.
    The Art Walk is expanding this year to include several businesses on Milwaukee Street as well as traditional Main Street locations, all easily accessed on foot or trolley. A map of the Art Walk route will be available at each participating business that night.  A 50/50 cash raffle will be available for those who’d like to try their luck or to support Absolutely Waterford.
