ArtWalk 2022-2023 Season

This season is funded by the Edward C. and Ann T. Roberts Foundation and Suzanne Hopgood
in memory of Frank Lord.

Special Notice:

The Library experienced extensive damage from a burst water pipe in late December 2022 and many areas of our Downtown Library are closed while undergoing renovation. This closure requires us to extend the Artwalk 2023-24 calendar to the 2024-25 exhibit year. We will also be extending the deadline for submissions.

The Library will keep the ArtWalk submission online portal open until February 28, 2024. If your work is selected by our panel of judges (convening in March 2024) to show on the ArtWalk, your show will be on exhibit for a 6 to 7 week period between September 2024 and June 2025, one year later than originally anticipated.

Thank you for your understanding.


Art is Work; Work is Art

ArtWalk Gallery, 3rd Floor, Downtown Library

This group exhibition features five artists who are museum professionals all working in local art institutions and private collections as art handlers.

Bun Keo says, "we are the magicians that make exhibitions shine and are stewards of the artwork."

While they work, they are informed by the workplace and the debris of their day to day operations. Inspiration arises from remnants of fabric and odd cuts of wood. There's a common denominator, that is the the value of work, conceptually, metaphysically and emotionally.
