Join us Thursday for Downtown ArtWalk and learn about Vision 2030

Downtown ArtWalk
Thursday, Oct. 20
5-8 p.m.

Join us this Thursday for a downtown stroll at ArtWalk. This month, ArtWalk will feature works inspired by Vision 2030, along with unique pieces from various downtown galleries.

Spearheaded by the Charleston Area Alliance, Vision 2030 is a blue ribbon panel of business and community leaders that is creating a 20-year plan for creating jobs and strengthening the economy of the Kanawha Valley.

At ArtWalk, visitors will find Vision 2030 activities including:

• Commissioned artwork by local artists in ‘Gallery Alley’ (located near the SubShop at 807 Quarrier St.)
• Sidewalk chalk art completed by Charleston Catholic art students.
• Inspired puzzle creation at the Lee Street Triangle. All artwalkers can create their inspired image of the future of the Kanawha Valley on ‘life-size’ puzzle pieces.

ArtWalk will also feature its usual array of art from downtown galleries including:

April Waltz at Art Emporium

The Art Emporium is featuring Wheeling, WV artist April Waltz in “April Waltz Does the Charleston: Choreography in Color.”

April strives to create works that are playful in their composition while being stimulating and surprising in color. She is an abstractionist at heart, and her sweeping flow, simple geometry, and rich solid colors are the building blocks that offer infinite possibilities.

This exhibit will run through Nov. 12.

Objects, Artifacts & Found Art featured at The Purple Moon

The Purple Moon will be featuring the glory of found objects, artifacts and art. Coinciding with the retro gallery’s new line of vintage industrial furniture and home accessories, The Purple Moon will present a unique collection of 20th Century found objects, many not originally intended as art.

Vintage signs, toys, tools and other artifacts have excellent design and beauty and The Purple Moon transforms these into art in this unusual exhibit.

Charleston Camera Club Showing at Romano and Associates

Members of the Charleston Camera Club will be exhibiting selected photographs in the offices of Romano and Associates at 230 Capitol Street, in Suite 200.

The Charleston Camera Club is a non-profit club with Members from various locations in southern West Virginia. The Club provides an informal and friendly environment for photographers of all skill levels since 1956.

The Club offers educational meetings, friendly competitions, exhibitions and opportunities to photograph nature and special events as a method to expand the knowledge and experience of the Members.

Artwalk Portrait Party at White Oak Photography

White Oak Photography is holding an Artwalk Portrait Party from 5–8 p.m. at the studio located at 107 Hale Street, Suite 100.

Come on over for the harrowing fright, that White Oak is brewing on ArtWalk night!
