It’s the MOST. WONDERFUL. TIME. of the year –– the beginning of the Art Walk Season!
We love Opening Nights all year long. But the Art Walk adds a whole other layer with its musical performers, dancers, and many talented local artists along the sidewalks connecting with the lively crowds and bringing the Square to life. The 2016 season of Marietta Square Art Walk kicks off Friday, March 4th and continues every first Friday through November. This year’s Art Walk celebrates the vitality of Marietta’s diverse cultural Arts scene with artists, businesses, and organizations showcasing a variety of artistic disciplines thriving in our community.

“Romance of the Nude and Figure” continues at dk Gallery with sculpture demonstration by Kevin Chambers and marquetry demonstration by artist Christie West. Fun fact: “Marquetry” (also spelled marqueterie) is the art of applying pieces of veneer to a structure forming decorative designs and images.
“Inked” is the first clue and the theme of the opening show at the Red Door Studio. Check out RedDoor48.com for more information on the show and this season’s contest with a cash prize for the winner.
