5th Annual Twisp Art Walk
Saturday, June 7, 4-8pm
The entire length of Glover Street
The 5th Annual Twisp Art Walk will celebrate the cultural, biological, and artistic significance of the Methow Valley river system. A thriving artist community, the Town of Twisp, WA, will host an evening of gallery openings, studio tours, theater shows, river education, music, food, drinks and participatory art projects for all ages! Glover Street will be transformed into an interactive, pedestrian-only street party featuring Austrian artist and geomancer, Karin Wimmeder, creating a large-scale, participatory, street-painting project; the forming of a “Human River” that will run through the main street of Twisp; and the openings of four new shows at local galleries, as well as the premiere of a new theatrical performance at the Merc Playhouse.
As if that weren’t enough, Blue Star Coffee Roasters will host the Valley’s first “Latte Art Throw-Down” on Glover Street at 5:30pm
