GALLERY WALK IS "ON" FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, but combined live and virtual!
Join us for Gallery Walk Stroll and Stream
Check out our first online Gallery "Walk" which started at 6:00 pm on August 7 here:
https://www.facebook.com/events/332218654618338/
and also on YouTube and BCTV!
Here is our YouTube intro:
https://youtu.be/3lMQ4CV0wuQ

A combination of the unexpected death of Joy Wallens-Penford on March 7, and COVID-19 causing the cancellation of most community gatherings, has caused Galley Walk to be put on "pause" for a few months.  The Arts Council of Windham County is working hard on figuring out how to re-envision Gallery Walk.  Many Zoom meetings have taken place and many emails have flown back and forth!  We restarted with a series of virtual Gallery Walks in August, and September will be both in person and online!

The images and characters come from dreams and memories the land drew out from my personal mythology. Timeless, yet inhabited for millennia, the islands carry a spiritual presence of deep wildness, palpable in the light and shadows; the ancient alligators and birds, the feral pigs and donkeys, and the artifacts of their existence lying everywhere." Hours are Thurs.-Fri.-Sat.-Sun. 12-5, with first-Friday Gallery Walk receptions at 5:30-8:30.
