ArtWalk takes place during FestivALL
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Charleston Area Alliance's ArtWalk, from 5 to 8 p.m. June 27, takes place this month during FestivALL.
The Quarrier Diner has recently renovated gallery space, where 17 members of Allied Artists will exhibit up to 10 works during ArtWalk. The exhibit also will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. June 29 and from noon to 6 p.m. June 30.
The artists are Sonja Adkins, Brenda Beatty, Jeannie Cochran, Newman Jackson, Sandra King, Sally Loring, Nancy Louise Mottesheard, Judith Pratt, Mary Russell, Thad Settle, Linda Stonestreet, and Martha Jane Williams (all fine art); Christine Daughtery (pottery); and Deborah Herndon, Tom Ogle and Chuck Wyrostok (photography).
Stray Dog Antiques will feature the sculptural artwork of Charleston resident Barbara Harris Walker. Her pieces use drafting tools, found objects, leather, glass, wood and bone. Many are functioning rattles. Each form is stitched and beaded meticulously using traditional methods, evoking the meditative and mathematical integrity of ancient art forms.
The Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation will showcase works by Deborah Herndon, Faye Johnson, Betty Rivard, Jurgen Lorenzen and Anna Nibert.
ArtWalkers are invited to stop by the Charleston Ballet for a drink and a snack for its "Dancing and Drinks" series. Watch ballet dancers at work in class and rehearsal settings, and view work in the studio by Allied Artists. The studios are on the mezzanine level in the Security Building, 100 Capitol St.
Kelly Bryant will be featured at Tony the Taylor, who is also showcasing clothing by Oxxford with a buy-one-get-one-free sale.
Thirty years of "Mountain Stage" is the subject of an exhibit at Good News Mountaineer Garage.
Hope Village, at First Presbyterian Church, highlights hand-woven baskets from Africa at its boutique shop. All products are "fair trade" certified and all sale proceeds go back to the artisans.
