Gibson's Lodging - Blog - Annapolis Art WalkThe Annapolis Gallery Association will soon showcase the best art the city has to offer by hosting its 26th Annual Annapolis Art Walk on Thursday, August 18, 2016 from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. This wonderful event is held yearly by more than 20 galleries located in Annapolis’ historic downtown and is open to the public. A vibrant city for artists and galleries, Annapolis was selected a Top 25 Arts Destination by American Style Magazine.

Live Artists and Musicians

Visitors to Annapolis will have a unique opportunity to watch artists at work on a sidewalk as they create new paintings and sculptures, ranging from the contemporary to the abstract. Also exhibited will be jewelry, ceramics, art glass, woodturning, and pottery. Exhibits will feature original works by artists from Maryland, other areas of the United Sates, and overseas. Adding to the Art Walk’s pleasant ambience will be musicians performing on the street as galleries hosting the event serve refreshments.
