The Art Walk returns to downtown Gloversville Saturday for a monthlong celebration of local artists.
Organized by the Glove Cities Arts Alliance, the Art Walk is an exhibition featuring the works of over 20 local artists who all reside or work in Fulton, Montgomery and neighboring counties. It’s set to start at 3 p.m. and will coincide with Gloversville’s Southern Adirondack Wine and Food Festival.
Artwork from each local artist will be on view through July 3 at a variety of businesses spread throughout a large portion of the city’s downtown business district.
The kick-off event will run until 7 p.m. and include local musicians playing throughout the downtown area and at the Southern Adirondack Wine and Food Festival, sponsored by Gloversville’s Recreation Committee.
The Glove Cities Arts Alliance began hosting the Art Walk in 2021.
“We wanted to have a way to really bring some life and vibrancy back into the downtown area,” Janelle Krause, GCAA’s board president previously told The Gazette.
The organization’s mission is to help sustain the health and vitality of the arts in local communities and to create an environment where the arts are accessible to all.
“We at GCAA believe there is a lot of unseen talent in Fulton and Montgomery counties and we want to help share that with the larger community,” Krause said.
The Art Walk is supported by a Community Arts Regrant through Saratoga Arts. For more information, visit Glove Cities Arts Alliance on Facebook.
