On Friday, October 7, 2016, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., downtown will be filled with art lovers as several galleries and some local favorites join together to host another exciting ArtD’Vine event. This art walk offers patrons the chance to gain after-hours access to merchants, sample domestic and international wines, and enjoy a range of works from artists across the region.
At the Birthplace of Country Music Museum, Art D’Vine participants can visit the special exhibit “We Are the Music Makers: Preserving the Soul of America’s Music” – the exhibit includes portrait photography, instruments and artifacts, folk art, and audio. The Museum Store will also be hosting featured artisan Eric Cunningham, creator of Appalachian Disasterpieces.
As with the previous gallery hops, participants are invited to stroll around Historic Downtown Bristol, stopping and enjoying all that our downtown has to offer! Refreshments will be provided and many of the galleries will feature different varieties of wine for sampling. The ArtD’Vine galleries will be highlighting various special events, releases or artists.
This event is free to the public, though there is a suggested one-time donation of $5 with the proceeds supporting the work of the Believe in Bristol Arts & Entertainment District of Historic Downtown Bristol, TN/VA.
