Emerging artists — and Westporters hoping to discover the next wave of great artists — get a chance to meet this Thursday evening (May 20).
Sconset Square shops will open their doors for an “Art Stroll.” From 6-8 p.m., 66 works in a variety of media will be shown. “Emerging artists” must never have had a solo show or gallery representation.
Refreshments will be offered from Mirabelle Cheese Shop’s traveling fromagerie. Also: “emerging specialty wines” from Country Liquor Store, music, and “a cozy fire pit” by Gault.
On Sunday (11 a.m. to 5 p.m.), art will be available at Sconset. There will be demonstrations by professional artists, musical performances, works from the Toquet Hall student art competition — and a chance to respond to the question “What inspires you?” (Answers will be tied to a tree, for all to see.)
Finally at Sconset Square on Sunday: a Tesla electric car.
What’s that got to do with art?
According to the Wall Street Journal, Tesla is where “art and technology meet face to face.” A Tesla official will discuss the car as an art form.
No word on what’s more expensive: a Tesla, or art by emerging artists.
