Haverhill Art Walk

As vaccines are flying and progress is being made to set quarantine-reality behind us, it’s time to remember what it’s like to live again! What better tools to help with that than community and art?

The perfect, lively aid is coming to Haverhill in the form of an Art Walk.

The event runs from 3:00 7:00 p.m. on May 8. A partnership between local businesses and local artists, the Art Walk invites the community to travel along a mapped route to visit restaurants, studios, and more with accompanied artists. Anyone interested can view the information online with the resources provided below.

An artist yourself? Perhaps a local business-owner? Feel free to reach out to the organizers’ contacts to join a future Art Walk route! Whether you want to do some live painting like Michael D. LaBranche or open a creative activity to the public like the Lisa Hartel Studio, demonstrations of all kinds are welcome! The energetic plan aims to not only bring amusement and a breath of fresh air for those stopping by, but to raise publicity for those skillful and valuable participants of the Haverhill community.

If you can’t make it next week on the 8th, not to worry! The Art Walk will come back every 2nd Saturday of the month until September (dates provided on website).

As we all itch for the day when we can throw away our masks, step outside on May 8th and smell some roses, see someone painting roses, or maybe even someone selling roses!
