EVENT: ART ON MAIN @ Art Around The Corner Foundation (St. George Art Museum: March 8)

Friday, March 8th, from 6:00 to 9:00pm, enjoy a walk down Main Street for the spring Art On Main gallery stroll. See the popular exhibit at the St. George Art Museum, "Quilts Re-Imagined," then visit each of eight fine art galleries for the latest works by local professionals. New to Art On Main will be the Remax Fine Art Gallery, located on the corner of Main Street and Tabernacle (in the former "Blue Bunny" space), which is currently showcasing artwork by the Dixie Watercolor Society. Remax hopes the gallery will provide an opportunity for local emerging artists to exhibit through organizations such as the Watercolor Society, said Remax representative Margie Hare. Also enjoy live music by local performers including the Red Sands Bluegrass Band and singer/songwriter Christina Osborn.

To participate in Art On Main, begin at the St. George Art Museum, located at 48 East 200 North. Admission to the museum is waived the evening of gallery stroll. Make sure to pick up a free “punch card” at the Art Museum that is marked at each gallery attended. Then, visit each gallery, enjoying a variety of live music, unique artwork, and the opportunity to meet many local professional artists. Turn in the punch card at Twenty-Five Main Café before 9:00pm, when a drawing will be held for the piece of artwork. Participating galleries include Bedard Fine Art, Authentique Gallery, Split Rock Gallery, Twiggs and Moore Gallery, The Mission Gallery, A Blue Sky Gallery located inside Print It, Wide Angle Photography, and Remax Fine Art Gallery. A map of the Gallery Walk can be downloaded at the informational Web site: StGeorgeArt.comunder “Art Walks.”

Art on Main is a non-profit project of the Art Around the Corner Foundation, and is supported in part by the St. George Arts Commission.
