PRESS RELEASE: Montpelier Art Walk

Enjoy the most festive Montpelier Art Walk on Friday, December 9th! Twenty-eight venues feature fine art, photography, sculptures, posters, handmade ornaments and more!

This Art Walk will feature Hal Mayforth, a nationally recognized humorous illustrator, at The Skinny Pancake. His 30 year career as an illustrator has established him as a distinctive, original painter of watercolors and acrylics.

The cover art for the December 9th Art Walk guide, Boustrophedon to Mecca (at left), was provided by S.B. Sowbel. Sowbel's distinctive and sensual boustrophedons explore an ancient form of writing that travels back and forth, "as the ox plows," in deeply colorful wax, oil and gouache, at Adorn.

In time for the holidays, Artisans Hand has handmade ornaments on display and available for purchase; ornaments made from glass, clay, wood, paper, pewter, fabric and felt.

The Art Resource Association also pulls out all the stops for a two-site, fifty-artist annual show. Come see Vermont's finest artists at both City Center and the T.W. Wood Gallery.

These are only a few of the highlights of the December 9th Art Walk. For more information, please call 802.223.9604 or go to We're also on Facebook at

Art Walk is from 4-8 pm. It’s free and open to everyone. We’ll see you downtown!
