Live Art Performance by Daniel Venditti
The Franklin Shops offer a unique occasion for Art Walkers to witness the creation of an original piece of art: During Art Walk, local artist Daniel Venditti will stage a live performance in the front window of the shops on First Street, creating a large-scale art piece. The Master Printmaker will create an original woodcut live in the window of the Franklin Shops. Dan Venditti’s drawing on wood panel will be carved beginning at 6pm. Be sure to come to the shops at 8:30pm again to see the block inked and a print pulled as the final piece of art.
Cuba: A World of Color and Charm
You are invited to share travelling experience and beautiful photography with Sherry Lavender, who earlier this year made a journey to Cuba. “On this cultural trip to the island, I experienced a world of color, charm, wonderfully warm people, beautiful country, and delectable food,” remembers the retired teacher. During Art Walk, Sherry Lavender will be at The Franklin Shops for a Meet & Greet and the presentation of her photography. “While staying and dining with local people and experiencing their world I learned of perseverance and hope,“ says Lavender “It was a true journey to a place only 90 miles away yet suspended in time.”
MUSIC WALK Friday, Novmber 15, 7–10pm
