The first week of the summer months ushers in the First Friday Art Walk on Marietta Square. A self-guided tour around the Square will connect you with more than 30 merchants who will host artists in their stores. Participating merchants will host in-store events and stay open until at least 8:00 pm in the evening.
This month's First Friday Art Walk will feature Artists' Alley: an intimate exhibit of juried artists showing wide variety of styles and will be located in warehouse space at Dupre's Antique Market, 17 Whitlock Avenue. Artists will also give demonstrations around Square. The event is held from 5-9 pm and gives you plenty of time to relax and visit many of the participating merchants.
Pick up a map at one of the shops (see Art Walk Banner in the window), choose your own route, and visit at least 15 merchants and enter to win prizes. For more information call 770-429-1115 or visit www.mariettasquare.com
