Season opens Friday for Carthage Art Walk

CARTHAGE, Mo. — Art, music and other activities are scheduled Friday when a new season of the Carthage Art Walk opens on the courthouse square.

Displays and programs set for 6 to 9 p.m. will showcase galleries, artists, restaurants and shops. Special events will feature a timed painting and a demonstration of an 1896 printing press.

A reception also is set for 6 p.m. at Hyde House gallery, 1110 E. 13th St., to mark the opening of an exhibit by two area artists.

Cherry’s Art Emporium on the square will feature the timed painting event. Three artists each will start with a canvas, paint for a specified period, and then pass the work to the next artist until all three have contributed to each painting. Artists participating will be April Davis Brunner, Kristen Huke and Tom Jones.

It’s Fancy, in the former Carthage Press building, will showcase a variety of working printing presses. Visitors also may watch as Cody Lankford makes prints from an antique printing press from 1896.

Work by other artists will be on display at a variety of sites: Jeannette Westbay, at Annie’s Emporium, Alice Lynn Greenwood, at Carthage Deli; Tom Jones and April Davis Brunner, at Cherry’s; Dan Curry, at Galbraith’s; Cody Lankford, at It’s Fancy; Koral Martin, Karen Brust, Janice Kinnman, Jude Champagne, Kristen Hawkins and Olivia Givens, at Koka Art Gallery; Rob Ingram, at Mother Road Coffee; Bess Lanyon, at Rumor Has it; and student art, at United Missouri Bank.

The bank also will be the host for an Exchange Club silent art auction and live music with Don Campbell. Live music with Dave Matthews is scheduled for the Woodshed, and the Rebecca Hawkins Projects will perform on the south side of the square.

Art lovers also may venture off the square for an artists’ reception at the Hyde House Gallery. The reception marks the opening of “Layers,” an exhibit of pastels and paintings by Patti Beavers, of Sarcoxie, and Becky Golubski, of Pierce City.


ART WALK ACTIVITIES will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. each fourth Friday through September.
