Annual Fourth Friday Art Walk Series Closes Out 11th Year This Friday

November 22 marks the final Fourth Friday Art Walk for 2019 in Ste. Genevieve, and a number of locations plan to end the season with something special.

The art walk series is concluding its 11th year, extending one month longer than usual this year. Galleries and art spaces in downtown Ste. Genevieve will be open from 6 to 9 p.m. (unless noted) this Friday.

The new Silver Sycamore Gallery of Fine Art, on the corner of Third and Market streets, will feature paintings by Janice Nabors Raiteri.

Raiteri said her creations “are, in a way, a metaphor for life’s journey.”

“I allow them to evolve organically — layered mistakes and successes, unfolding mysteries that continually change, revealing themselves,” she said.

Lewsi Winery on Main Street will be showing items with fleur-de-lis motifs by Keen Owl Pottery. In addition, Brenda Thompson will have new paintings in watercolors and acrylic; and Suzanne Thompson, who has been busy Shibori dyeing, will have unique clothing for women and men, along with winter scarves.

E-KLeK-TiX, also on North Main Street, features a preview of the Holiday Christmas Festival with almost two dozen new works by proprietor J Rissover. Wine and  apple cider will be available.

109 North Main Gallery and Studio will be feature Terri Cavin’s Peruvian-inspired paintings from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday. The gallery will be taking holiday orders for custom pet portraits also.

Other art spaces and venues that have announced they will be open include Zielinski’s, Rust, and Only Child Originals. Other art spaces and businesses may also be participating.
