On Friday, February 3, 2017, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., downtown will be filled with art lovers as several galleries and local favorites join together to host another Believe in Bristol Art D’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.
The Birthplace of Country Music Museum will once again be participating in Art D’Vine and will be hosting local artisan Susan Fields. Susan is a bead and jewelry artisan, creating beautiful flower and tree sculptures from thousands of tiny glass beads and wire. Her jewelry items are stitched one bead at a time – wearable art! Susan will be doing small demonstrations of her craft during the event. Patrons can also view “A Place for All People,” a historic poster exhibit commemorating the opening of the National Museum of African American History & Culture.
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 Art D’Vine galleries will be highlighting various special events, releases or artists. Those who complete their Art D’Vine passport (available at any of the stops) by visiting each stop will be entered into a raffle to win a gift certificate for Whiskey Rebellion! 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 Arts & Entertainment District of Historic Downtown Bristol, TN/VA.
