Word and Image Gallery Exhibit Opening – Stagecoach Spotlight Show
July 6 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm
The Word and Image Gallery Stagecoach Spotlight Exhibit featuring one piece from each artist participating by opening his/her studio for the 24th annual Stagecoach Art Run Festival. From realist to conceptual, and conventional to experiential, 2018’s roster included artists working in virtually every conceivable media. The exhibition of participating artists’ works will allow visitors to experience the totality of the gallery exhibitions, and to plan their tour routes. All work will be available for sale, and will be accompanied by the artist’s bio and studio location. Begun in 1995 by fifteen Treadwell artists, the festival has grown over its more than two decade history. Its original mission remains unchanged: 1) to spotlight artists and creatives living and working locally, 2) to forge new relationships between those artists and their (perhaps unsuspecting) neighbors, and 3) to further prove the theory that artists provide an indefinable yet undeniable financial and cultural value to a community. As always, the Festival is completely free to attend and maps will be widely available across the region leading up to the event, available at all of the venues during the event, and downloadable via the festival’s website (StagecoachRun.com) at any time. Ommegang beer will be available by donation. This is a spectacular annual show, celebrating the richness of our artist community, not to be missed.
