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 opening a discussion of these last 8 months. This Themed art walk is called Metamorphosis: An Artful Look at these Changing Times.
More than a dozen artists have been juried into our art walk to express their experience of the times we're going through. Whether it has been the pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement, the loss of job or family or the gaining of quiet and contemplative space = we have each shared this remarkable year.
We want to share the varied experiences from pain to healing, openings to closings. Come see what the visionaries of our area have to say about their Metamorphosis in this time.
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 Metamorphosis exhibition. Please join us for this wonderful celebration of art and artists in Gulfport.
