NYACK, N.Y. -- The 11th annual Art Walk will be held in Nyack on Friday, June 17 through Sunday, June 19.
For these three days, this juried event turns the village shops into mini-art galleries, with the talented artists, in residence, exhibiting and selling their work. Garner Arts resident artist Ronan Bowes won selection as the poster cover artist for Art Walk Nyack.
The event is produced by Paulette Ross, owner of P. Ross in Nyack and features an opportunity to meet and discuss the creative process with selected artists. The theme of the event is "In A Perfect World..." The featured piece this year, entitled “Trapped In The Sublime,” is the work of artist Ronan Bowes from Ireland.
The painting belongs to his immigration series, relating to his own experience as an immigrant as well as the refugee crisis currently occurring throughout Europe. For the artist, ‘In A Perfect World’ means “a world without economic migration or war refugees...and a metaphor encompassing new beginnings...In traditional Irish culture the females play a critical role in the family, and leaving his homeland in search of work also meant leaving pillars of strength.”
This year Art Walk showcases a new art medium -- music. Stefan Waldman and Good Vibrations will present a variety of musical acts in two locations in the Village -- at the Gazebo in Veteran's Park on Main Street and in the Garden at Hickory Dickory Dock on South Broadway.
It begins at 12 p.m. on Saturday, June 18, and culminates in a drum circle in Veteran's Park at 8:30 p.m., where local singers, songwriters and combos will share a diverse program of original and interpreted compositions.
