Art Walk 2017 August 25-September 8th
4th Annual ArtWalk Ridgefield: The downtown streets of Ridgefield will once again come alive during Art Walk Ridgefield 2017. More than 50 restaurants, businesses and cultural venues will showcase the work of over 70 artists in windows and on shop walls during this free, two-week festival, transforming the downtown area into a strolling art gallery.
Art Walk Ridgefield kicks off on Friday, August 25, 5:00-‐8:00pm, with an artist opening reception in the stores and continues on Saturday, August 26 from noon to 4:00pm. Live music and demonstrations are also planned outside storefronts in town and the Marketplace at Copps Hill.
In addition, one piece from each accepted artist will be included in the ‘Walk on Down’ exhibit at the Guild, which coincides with the Art Walk. Artists, merchants, friends and family are invited to the opening reception for the ‘Walk on Down’ exhibit immediately following Artists Day on Saturday, August 26, 4:00-‐6:00pm.
