August showcases summer in Maine and Bath’s Third Friday Art Walk showcases dozens of artists from across the region.  Make an evening of it on Friday August 17 from 5-8pm and enjoy concerts, exhibits, and meet the artists in their studios and sites.  Local eateries show off art and host live music.

Harcourt Rice Massage Therapists joins the Art Walk this month, showing “Flowers and Nudes,” new works on canvas by Leigh Kelly-Monroe. Most sites are within walking distance in downtown Bath.  Everyone should explore studios and galleries a bit farther away, either by car or by trolley.  Visit Sarah Greenier Gallery, Claudette Gamache Gallery, Linda Murray, Daniele Lambrechts, Lynn Koenig and Wayne Robbins.  These talented artists work in their home studios and open their doors for the Art Walk. 

Evening activities continue with “High Ball Jazz Duo” performing at Solo Bistro; two concerts begin at 7pm: a concert at the Library Park Gazebo; and Alison Lee Freeman “Singing our History in the City of Ships” at the Chocolate Church Arts Center.  Make a night of it. The Third Friday Art Walk is sponsored by Five Rivers Arts Alliance, 108 Maine St., Brunswick.  Promotional support is provided by CHR Realty, Holiday Inn and The Bath Trolley.  Look for blue flyers with complete listings and map in participating locations.
