First Thursday Art Walk
December 6, 2012
Festive First Thursday Art Walk Dec. 6th– The free, self-guided, art phenomenon known as The First Thursday Art Walk brings together art lovers and community friends to the ever evolving downtown Beverly. Visitors can be found enjoying fresh new art, and getting an insider’s look into the vibrant Beverly Culture alive with jazz, film, public art and entertainment in the thriving, vibrant community. With exciting offerings around every corner, downtown Beverly celebrates the arts the 1st Thursday of each and every month.
During the relaxing stroll from Rantoul to Cabot, a mixture of galleries, open studios of painters, jewelers and guitar makers, public murals and creative businesses welcome visitors with refreshments and special exhibitions. Visitors come from near and far to savor the local experience. One Manchester resident said, “I was surprised to find many new venues I’ve never seen before; I’ve been looking for an event like this in Beverly for some time, and I’ am definitely coming back next month!”
The event will be held Thursday December 6th from 6:00pm – 9:00pm. Please join us in celebrating the many cultural institutions, large and small, located in Beverly. For more information contact Margot Rogers, Margot@MargotRogers.com
