Lewisburg to host 18th annual Stroll Through the Arts
LEWISBURG — Both the visual and the performing arts will take center stage in downtown Lewisburg the first Friday in November, as the Lewisburg Arts Council holds the 18th annual Stroll Through the Arts from 6 p.m. to midnight Nov. 4.
The evening will start with more than 30 artists displaying their works in shops, studios and galleries along five blocks of downtown Market Street. The artists will range from painters to potters to jewelers to photographers, and all are from the central Susquehanna Valley region.
A silent art auction and sale will be held from 6-9 p.m. at 323 Market St. in conjunction with the Stroll Through the Arts. This year will be the 24th annual auction, and features work donated by the juried artists who participated in last April’s Lewisburg Arts Festival. New this year is an “instant gratification” price for each item, if attendees are interested in buying an item right away instead of waiting to see if they have won it through the silent auction.
This year’s Stroll Through the Arts again will feature the passport program — anyone who visits and has checked off the required number of businesses in certain blocks of downtown is eligible to enter a drawing for one of three pieces selected from the art donated by Arts Festival artists. Passports are available at any one of the participating businesses or the silent art auction and sale site. The drawing will happen at 9:30 p.m. at the 323 Market St. auction site.
The evening will end with music from 9 p.m. to midnight, with the Backyard Ponies from 9-11 p.m. at the Bull Run Tap House, 605 Market St., and Royal Benson from 10 p.m. to midnight at the Towne Tavern, 600 Market St. Both performances are free of charge.
