Meet And Greet The Artists At Art Walk 2011

Nyack, June 15 — Thirty stores, museums and public spaces will be turned into temporary art galleries this weekend during the 6th annual Art Walk in Nyack. Local and regional artists display their work and are hand in each space to meet the public during the three day event.

‘€œI am still in awe of the amazing talent that’s out there, ‘€ says Paulette Ross, producer of Art Walk. The theme of this year’s event is “A Tribute To Edward Hopper,” honoring the acclaimed artist on the 40th anniversary of the Hopper House Art Center in Nyack.  “I am thrilled at the creative result of this twist to the event,” says Ross.

“Unlike other Art Walks that I have participated in, Nyack’s event is unique because the artist is in residence,” says artist and graphic designer David Derr. “That’s important because it creates an comfortable opportunity for  the artists, art admirers and potential purchasers to interact.” Derr says the format of the event introduces people to both businesses and artists that they might never have had a previous opportunity to meet. “It’s a win-win situation which creates a large volume of traffic during the show for both the artist and the each hosting merchant.”

Derr will conduct a special art class for children on Sunday from 1-3p at Eyevolution Optique. Call 845-353-4701 for reservations.

Art Walk 2011 takes place on June 17-19 on Friday from  7-9p, Saturday from 12n-5p and 6-9p
and on Sunday from 12-5p.
