NASHUA – As City Arts Nashua gears up for the 15th Annual ArtWalk, the organization is still accepting artist registrations and looking for community members to help with the event.
ArtWalk is a celebration of art and culture throughout the city, featuring a variety of art, music, and performances in the downtown are from Oct. 18-20.
The event will kick off its three-day run with an exclusive ticketed celebration. This is currently scheduled for the Hunt Memorial Building from 7-9 p.m. Oct. 18, at a cost of $25.
“Our hope is to do it at the Hunt Building,” event organizer Wendy Fisher said. “We’re hoping to make it something that is really unique.”
Throughout the weekend, multiple areas of the downtown will feature artists and performers. These are now scheduled to include:
• Pickers Artist Collaboration, at 3 Pine St.,
• the 30 Temple St. building, and
• The Telegraph main office, at 110 Main St.
Many other individual stores and locations scattered about the area will also feature arts and music.
“We’re trying to build a community in the downtown showcasing the arts and what Nashua has available in terms of creativity,” Fisher said. “Nashua just has so much to offer in regards to the arts, and I think that it’s interesting. It is a showcase to show the talent that is out there.”
A new twist will be added to this year’s event, as on Saturday, the Hunt Building will host a Mini Psychic Fair, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fisher said this will be a smaller “sample size” of the psychic fair that City Arts Nashua host in the spring.
“We do a psychic fair in the spring. We’re doing a smaller version of that we are excited about because that helps showcase local talent in that area,” Fisher said. “Honestly, with this time of year, I think everyone is into having their readings done.”
While expanding on the events focus on younger artist and increasing the experience for children at the event, both days will be full activities and art stations geared toward the youth with this year’s KidsWalk!!, Including a quilting station where children will design squares to be stitched together by Cindy Goodman, as well as an student art exhibit featuring work of students throughout the city.
“We’re really looking to bring more families and a lot more younger artist to this year’s Artwalk,” Fisher said.
Artist will have until Sept. 17 to register to participate in the event. The fee is $35 for artists and $15 for students. Those interested in showcasing their talents and artwork can do so at the City Arts Nashua Art Walk page, https://www.cityartsnashua.org/artwalk-2019-store/artwalk-2019-registration.
As artist continue to sign up to showcase their skills, the organization is also looking for a couple of volunteer coordinators as well as more members of the community to volunteer their time throughout the event. Those looking to help out can do so by emailing Wendy Fisher at email@example.com.
