Important Update! Due to Saturday's weather forecast, several Art Walk events that were originally planned for the Green will now move to Makery Coworking. In addition to the information listed in our original post, the following events will now take place at 20 Bank Street on our main floor:
1:00 pm: Dance Performance
2:00 pm: Improvisational Jazz Ensemble
3:00 pm: Fashion Show
Makery Coworking is excited to be a participant in this year's New Milford Art Walk. The event will take place downtown on the Green this Saturday, August 12th from 1-5pm.
The event is sponsored by the New Milford Commission on the Arts in association with Lacee Yurtoglu, the inspiration behind the concept. The goal is to create an enlightening downtown experience for artists, local businesses and the broader community.
"Home base" for the event is the Housatonic Railroad Building, the new home for Gallery 25. There, attendees can learn which businesses and artists are participating in the event.
Makery Coworking is thrilled to host mixed-media artist, Susan Lerner. As described on her website:
"My work blends personal photographs with vintage images to create complex visual landscapes. I construct whimsical, surreal compositions into multidimensional visual stories, exploring relationships in the world. Both old and new coexist to create a unique narrative and perspective. The work embodies the attitude that anything is possible."
Litchfield Distillery will also be on site to sample an array of their locally-batched spirits. Of course, samples are only available to adults 21+ with proper identification.
All-in-all, it promises to be a great event and a wonderful opportunity to spend time downtown on our beautiful Green!
