Commemorate Sesquicentennial of the Civil War at First Friday Art Walk
Dates: 10/4/2013 - 10/4/2013
Time: 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Location: Glover Park - Marietta Square
Come out and "paint the town" at First Friday Art Walk, a burgeoning, eclectic art scene that is the perfect backdrop for an artful stroll. Held the first Friday of the month, April through October, Art Walk is a free, self-guided tour to Marietta's diverse art scene.
The sesquicentennial of the Civil War is almost here and the Marietta Museum of History will commemorate the occasion by featuring Cobb County artists Glen Amos and Hubert Brown.
Glen Amos, a local furniture craftsman, is also a chainsaw artist. He creates masterful art pieces from different types of wood which is often found in Cobb County. His pieces are intricate and detailed with a different style than most chainsaw art.
Hubert Brown is a folk artist who paints on canvas, bricks, shovels and other media. At Art Walk he will feature his paintings based on his grandmother's memories of the Civil War. He has interpreted her stories with the bright colors and haunting characters of his own self-taught style.
Art galleries, museums, cultural venues, restaurants and boutiques host artists within their stores from 5-9 p.m. Performance artists will also give demonstrations around the Square.
