L/A Arts is excited to usher in the new season with the return of Summer Art Walk L/A! Taking place from 5:00 – 8:30 p.m. the last Friday night of every month from May – September, Art Walk Lewiston Auburn turns downtown Lewiston into an impressive arts district.
This summer, L/A Arts is pleased to be partnering with more local downtown businesses than ever before. Over twenty greater Lisbon Street organizations and storefronts open their doors and offer visual art galleries, live performances, and special exhibits to local community members and patrons.
L/A Arts is proud to be curating at least 10 of such venues, including transforming multiple empty storefronts into arts venues. This year, L/A Arts is also pleased to offer a new online artist catalog of artwork for the public to view on the Art Walk website (www.artwalklewistonauburn.com). All participating artist’s work, and the accompanying venues they will be displayed in, will be presented to give patrons an opportunity to browse, enjoy, and even purchase artwork before and after the event. L/A Arts will also be bringing live arts performances back to Dufresne Plaza, to add to the energy, vibrancy, and multiple outstanding offerings of Art Walk L/A.
L/A Arts is also accepting artist submissions for the May 30th Art Walk! The event offers local artists the opportunity for extensive exposure and a chance to sell their artwork to the hundreds of arts appreciators who come every month. Artist’s work is curated in one of the multiple venues, and displayed on the online gallery for a small submission fee of $5, and this year, is proud to introduce for the first time, zero commissions on sold artwork! (With the exception of a 5% payment processing fee). The deadline for submissions for the first Art Walk is May 10th.
