It’s hard to believe that the year is about 90% over, and that there are only two Art Walks left before the new year! But 2018 has demonstrated that Dover loves art. Artists produce their work to convey messages, and that is the purpose of any composition. But in the end, it is the consumer of the work that has a final say as to what any individual piece “means”.
The holidays, too, are about meaning. We give gifts in order to express how we feel, whether it be gratitude, thankfulness or love. And a meaningful gift is one that is not only pretty, or utilitarian, but one which the giver has thought about, or connected with.
The Art Walk is Dover’s opportunity to find gifts that have value and meaning. Not only can a giver express love and gratitude toward a recipient, but respect for the arts and individual artists as well.
Music this month includes Spirit and Delight, and David Corson at The Art Center. The performers at the Washington St. Mill Foyer include Tali Freed and the Mandolin.
The Art Center at 1 Washington, presents “To End All Wars” by local photographer Issac Epstein. An exhibit of photographs taken by Epstein to commemorate the centennial of the First World War.
As usual, those who visit each stop on the walk are eligible to enter a raffle which will be held at the close of the walk.
The Dover Art Walk is a Dover Main Street event run by the Dover Art Walk sub-committee including The Art Center, Dover Business Industrial Development Authority, and D Graphics.
A true city-wide collaboration, many businesses and organizations have come together to support the Art Walk in Downtown Dover.
The Dover Art Walk runs from 4 – 8 PM, Friday, November 2 from 4 – 8 PM.
