Ste. Genevieve’s Fourth Friday Art Walk kicks off for the 2020 season on February 28, promising new art and the fun of meeting the artists who created it.
“We’re very happy to be starting up again,” said art walk spokesperson Mary Peura. “Even though not all the art spaces will be involved this month, since the season has started so early, there will be some very special work on display by some very interesting artists.”
The Ste. Genevieve Welcome Center at Market and Main will feature original works by Peggy Bay and Vada Galvan, both accomplished artists and members of the Ste. Genevieve Art Guild.
Silver Sycamore at Third and Market will have art by David Langeneckert and other distinguished artists.
Rustik Sand Candles on Merchant Street will feature the work of Breanna Nicole Trent, a multi-media artist whose work ranges from watercolor, ink, and wire, to acrylic. Her subjects include the moon, birds, fish, felines, and cacti. Stop by for snacks and wine.
Modern Primitive and o*Live Studio at 145 Washington Street will feature new watercolor frescoes, art jewelry, and fiber sculpture in the historic African-American schoolhouse.
Lewsi Winery on North Main Street will show Suzanne Thompson’s “Angels and Abstracts,” new paintings by Brenda Thompson, and pieces from Keen Owl Pottery.
E-KleK-Tix Gallery and Studio on North Main will feature new paintings by resident artist J Rissover, plus a unique collection of one-of-a-kind decorative items.
