On Saturday May 3rd from 3pm to 8:30pm area artists and artisans will be in Hammonds Ferry to display and sell their works. La Petite Gallerie is hosting the event. We are hoping The Art Walk will become an annual May celebration. This year The Art Walk will take patrons on a leisurely springtime stroll thru beautiful Hammonds Ferry. Maps will be available at the restaurants and La Petite Gallerie in the neighborhood. The maps will show the location of the booths/tents. We will also have some bright helium-filled balloons to guide you along the path which will have vendors from Brick Pond Market and Manuel's Bread Café on Crystal Lake Drive, then right onto Arrington Avenue to La Petite Gallerie and more booths, left down Phoenix with one more left onto Front Street past the Jill Stafford Gallery and into Boeckh Park for more booths as well as music by the band Acosta. They will play for your listening pleasure from 5p-8p. Fat Mans Food Truck will provide food in the park. We will also have music at the beginning of the stroll provided by Ted Myers in front of Brick Pond Market for a few hours that evening.
The event will serve three charities which will also have tents along the Art Walk stroll. First will be CMONA, Community Ministries of North Augusta. They will have art for sale as well as other items and collectibles and will be located by Brick Pond Market, one of our wonderful community restaurants.
Next as you come down Crystal Lake Drive past other tents you will come to Manuel's Bread Café, a perfect stop for a bite and refreshment, then to Arrington, to Phoenix, and to Front street where the Jill Stafford Gallery is located. Proceeds from Jill's prints and original art will go to help in the fight to save young girls from human trafficking. Jill will go to Nicaragua in January with a medical team. She will be at House of Hope to minister to these young women and their children.
In Boeckh Park you will find our third charity, The American Heart Association who will also host a tent with some giveaways and a raffle you won't want to miss.
There is something for everyone at the inaugural Art Walk. You will be certain to find handmade, unique, one-of-a-kind gifts (Mother's Day is the following weekend). Hope to see you there!
