It's finally here! Our much anticipated, re-designed FIRST FRIDAY ART WALK.
Welcome to downtown Gulfport's new ART WALK where makers and appreciators converge on our beautiful city to get inspired, open dialogue and have a good time. For this debut event we are celebrating a Plein Air Art Walk .
More than a dozen painters have been juried into our art walk to paint iconic Gulfport scenes 'plein air' or 'in the streets'. Plein air means there is a time limit to complete the painting and light limit, as the sun moves across the sky. The canvas' presented were created on September 30th's Tuesday Fresh Market Day and are being shown on this debut FIRST FRIDAY ART WALK. We will reveal who will be donning their artwork on BM GALLERY walls as we get closer to the event. Mark you calendars and prepare to be inspired. Art!
Art is an act of communication. The artists' tools are her words, the marks on the canvass, clay or metal, his thoughts. Art is designed to open dialogue, explore ideas and express feelings, thoughts and observations. Gulfport's new First Friday Art Walk is coming back to its roots by beginning a dialogue between artist and viewer. It is a conversation to stimulate, inspire or break out of old ideas.
We are so excited to begin Gulfport's new FIRST FRIDAY ART WALK with this Plein Air exhibition. Awards will be presented to the Best in Show and Best Emerging Artist. Please join us for this wonderful celebration of art and artists in Gulfport.
