The summer’s final art walk for downtown Turlock is set for Thursday, with seven exhibitions planned for the event.
Art Around Town has been a series of evening art walks through downtown Turlock galleries and businesses that feature free, family-friendly events, all with the goal of introducing and promoting Turlock’s art and culture scene.
“Art Around Town is a concept developed by a committee of art enthusiasts and supporters to highlight the exciting things happening in arts and culture in downtown Turlock,” said Carnegie Arts Center Director Lisa McDermott.
Attendees of the art walk may stroll between several art galleries located on and near Main Street to view and purchase art, while browsing local businesses that choose to include local artists or musicians at their stores on event nights.
The walk begins at 6 p.m. and ends at 9 p.m.
Thursday’s exhibits include works from Stanislaus State art students that will be displayed at La Mo Café.
Art Space on Main will feature Darrin Martin's exhibition “Echo: Location,” a culmination of recent works in moving image, sound, sculpture, and print media. The Building Imagination Center housed inside Art Space on Main will be screening Elisabeth Kohnke's film "The Perfect," which is inspired by Jorgen Leth’s "The Perfect Human."
The Carnegie Arts Center will be presenting the Yosemite Renaissance XXX exhibit of paintings, photographs, fiber arts, prints and sculptures highlighting the beauty of Yosemite.
