WAXHAW – Artists and art enthusiasts will gather together from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 20 at the newly refurbished Waxhaw Water Tower Park for Connect with Art, a public event hosted by the Waxhaw Art Council in collaboration with the town.
The Connect with Art event will be buzzing with more than 20 local artists demonstrating their craft and selling their wares. The public can meet local artists, learn about their craft and purchase a variety of artwork, ranging from canvas paintings to pottery. There will be paintings, pottery, glass, wood and photography.
All ages are encouraged to connect with art during the event. Experience the joy of creativity with a hands-on, collaborative art piece designed for all ages and skill levels to help create.
The finished collaboration will be a portable, public mural depicting life in Waxhaw, and will either be auctioned off to help support the Waxhaw Art Council or displayed around town for all to enjoy.
Try your hand at painting kindness rocks at the Junior Art League’s booth. These smooth, river rocks will be available for all ages to paint with an encouraging message or design. Then, painters can choose to hide their rocks around town for others to find and brighten their day.
For more art, follow the signs to Eight Legs Gallery and Stewart’s Village Gallery which are within walking distance from the Connect with Art event. Art Box Ceramics and Canvas, located inside Eight Legs Gallery will feature specials on paint-your-own pottery and will be open for walk-ins from 11 am to 6 pm.
The Connect with Art event will be on Providence Road South between North Main Street and McDonald Street.Contact Lambeth Marshall at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.wax hawartscouncil.org for details.
