The Teaberry Arts Council has been hard at work creating the first ever Teaberry Arts Council Art Walk that is taking place in Rumford, Maine on August 17th from 4pm till 9pm.
The Teaberry Arts Council is planning an Art Walk at the Rumford walking trail by the tennis courts in the Hosmer Field Complex in Rumford 4:00 pm – 9:00 pm Sunday, August 17th. There will be artists and artisans, musicians, and performers displaying their skills for the public to see. There will be something for everyone of all ages!
Some of the activities include a special photo booth featuring unique effects made in the dark by Nick Graham and Trish Hodgkins. Scotty Milligan will be displaying the art of the Blacksmith. There will be Yarn Bombing, and other visual art including many of the Totally Artsy Containers that will be placed around the town for silent bidding. The highest silent bid will be the starting bid for the live auction to be held at the Pumpkin Fest October 11th in downtown Rumford.
There will be art activities for the kids, including sidewalk chalk art fusion, fairy houses, magic with David and Dennis, also juggling, balloon sculpture by Scot and face painting with Becki. Have your photo taken with some of the characters from the Library’s production of the Wizard of Oz! Adults will enjoy all of this as well as the kids along with paintings, photo displays, and live acoustic music including Troy Pingree, Lori Grassette, and more! Kris Howes of Ink Maine is doing a special “Oil on Canvas Art Fusion” featuring 6 great local artists. Phoebe Pike will have copies of her book “The Cold World” available for personal signings.
The entire event is free but bring some cash to show appreciation by dropping a few bucks in the hats or guitar cases, and possibly find some art that you would like to purchase. There will be food available by Silver Platter and possibly more. Stay for the Fire Pit Campfire sing along Jam 8:00 – 9:00 (+ -)
