Art Stroll to showcase painting, quilts and theater
- Published: October 14, 2010
The semi-annual Art Stroll, an evening of informal art and entertainment downtown, will take place on Friday, Oct. 15, from 6 to 9 p.m. This fall’s stroll will be held in honor of Eddie Eckenrode, who helped organize the first stroll in 1996, and who died in May.
Other Art Stroll events on Friday evening, Oct. 15, include:
- “Hey That’s a Nice Bike!” — a free meta-philosophic, dramatic, sketch-comedy performance…with a superhero in it — by the Third Friday Players, a new theater troupe, will be performed at 8 p.m. at 100 Corry Street and 9 p.m. in front of Sam & Eddie’s Open Books.
- “Dare 2B Square” will open at the Village Artisans Gallery, 100 Corry Street, featuring the work of more than 30 artists on 12-inch by 12-inch canvases.
- There will be an artist reception for Corrine Bayraktaroglu’s show, “Stitch Gasp!” at “would you, could you” In A Frame, 113 Corry Street, with stitched art meant to elicit gasps of both wonder and horror.
- The Arts Council will host an opening for Karen Russell with guest Sharon Mohler called “Out of My Box: An Exhibition of Extreme Quilting” in their gallery space at 309 Xenia Avenue.
- In Kings Yard artist Mike Garrett of the Royal Order of the Moi will be carving and displaying Hawaiian Tikis.
- Refreshments, including wine and food, will be available at many of the galleries and shops.
