2016 Art Walk
The Wendell Appearance Commission will host the 1st annual Art Walk with an open-air art competition on May 14, 2016 as part of the Town's Spring Fling.
Artists will set up in Wendell’s historic downtown district, located between Cypress Street and Pine Street Wendell Boulevard and Second Street. Walkers are invited to watch the artists in action beginning at 10 a.m and ending at 5 p.m. There will also be a sidewalk chalk artist working from 12 p.m. until 3 p.m. on N. Main Street.
Everyone is encouraged to check out all of the artists as they bring their creations to life. A map showing the artist's locations is available for download here.
Paintings will be judged between 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m., followed by an artists’ reception and public viewing at Wine 101, 21 N. Main Street (beer and wine is available for purchase and light snacks will be available). After winners are announced, the artwork will be offered for sale in an hour-long silent auction beginning at 7:30 p.m. Half of the money raised by each painting will go to Appearance Committee and the remaining half is available for the artists to keep. If you are interested in purchasing one of the paintings, all money must be collected the night of the auction. Cash or check (made payable to Town of Wendell with the memo stating "Appearance Commission")
All paintings will be collected after the auction and displayed at Town Hall for one month before being returned to the winning bidders, The paintings will be scanned for possible reproduction by the Town of Wendell and will be added to the current collection of public art.
