Sconset Art Stroll

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.

(Thursday’s and Sunday’s events are sponsored by Art by Local, a collaboration between the Westport Downtown Merchants Association and Westport Arts Center.)
