Local art, music and food will make a lively mix on Saturday (Sept. 24) at the Fall Art Walk in Twisp.
Downtown Twisp from Twisp Avenue to TwispWorks will be filled with more than 50 artists, makers, farmers and musicians from 3-7 p.m.
Methow Arts will lead a giant pop-up chalk art mosaic with a harvest theme at the intersection of Glover and Second Avenue, featuring special chalk and 3D glasses and an invitation to everyone to set their inner artist free.
Art Walkers will be able to shop for an array of art and craft products, and participate in a variety of art-centric activities for all ages.
The Art Walk coincides with the opening of art exhibits at Confluence Gallery from 5-7 p.m. Also at Confluence Gallery, music students of Pipestone School of Music will perform during the Art Walk.
The Merc Playhouse production of the comedy, “The One Act Play That Goes Wrong,” starts at 7 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30.
