Art, music, food and community connection are the key ingredients of the Twisp Fall Art Walk and Studio Tour on Saturday (Sept. 25) from 1-5 p.m., and an after party at TwispWorks from 5-7 p.m.
The Fall Art Walk is an opportunity to celebrate the many talented artists who call the Methow Valley home. Showcasing more than 50 artists, the Fall Art Walk will fill downtown Twisp with sculpture, handmade jewelry, paintings, pottery, textiles, photography and live music.
Glover Street will be closed between Second and Third avenues to allow pedestrians to meander freely during the Art Walk. Art galleries, studios and workshops around town will be open to explore and shop.
Walking maps highlighting studios, galleries and other locations offering art and fun will be available in advance at the Twisp Chamber of Commerce website, TwispWA.com, as well as in person at all participating organizations.
Pipestone Music students and some of their teachers will be performing at various locations during the Art Walk.
In addition to Twisp’s local restaurants, tasty fare will also be available from Lonchera Yucatan Food Truck and Fork Food Truck during the event.
In conjunction with the Art Walk, Resilient Methow will host a climate action event from 12-3 p.m. in the Twisp Courtyard. The event will celebrate the recently completed Methow Valley Climate Action Plan, and provide updates from local organizations and leaders about ways the Methow community is already responding to climate change through their work.
Speakers will begin at 1 p.m. and K.C. Golden, former board chair of 350.org , an international climate advocacy group, will speak at 1:30 p.m. People can learn how to get involved in climate action, and sample the new OSB “Clear the Haze” IPA, which benefits Resilient Methow
Following the Art Walk, TwispWorks will host an after party at the pavilion featuring live music by local DJs.
Facial coverings will be required at Art Walk events, both indoors and outdoors.
The Art Walk is sponsored by the Twisp Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with TwispWorks, Confluence Gallery, Methow Arts, Cascadia Music and the Town of Twisp.
