Musicians will be located throughout the ArtWalk: Stan Davis on guitar playing folk and blues music, will be at the Tontine Mall; Randy Lindsay will be strolling the streets with guitar, providing easy listening and jazz music; Married with Chitlins, Chris and Liz Lannon, an acoustic music duo, will perform traditional American folk music at Cool as a Moose; Pretty Girls Sing Soprano, Susan Bean Mathews, Ingrid Ayer-Richardson and Shelly Hatton Kirkpatrick, will harmonize to sing a variety of genre at Gelato Fiasco; Carter Ruff — who by day is a luthier, repairing and building guitars and other stringed instruments, will be at the Bank of America with acoustic blue grass, and Kevin Wyman from The Music Center will play rock, blues and jazz music.

Bridget McAlonan’s art is featured on the August ArtWalk poster. McAlonan explained, “The Gathering is based on a dream in which, after feeling raw and cold from the long winter, spring and summer come along bringing the lush green. The image tells me that even though something might seem imposing, or perhaps dead and scary (like bones) there is still the potential for life and growth.” This painting is among several of McAlonan’s that are currently on exhibit at the Frank Brockman Gallery at 68 Maine Street.

The 20 exhibit areas range from St. Paul’s Church on Pleasant Street to Maine Street, and right and left onto Maine Street. Access to these venues is simplified with the free services of the Brunswick Explorer which circles the art show route throughout the evening.

ArtWalk flags identify the exhibit areas and bus stops.

The ArtWalk brochure is available at and includes a map with locations of all the artists, a list of the performing artists and musicians, a list of sponsoring restaurants, and a map showing the route of the Brunswick Explorer.

Five Rivers Arts Alliance, with offices upstairs at 108 Maine Street, is open to all artists and supporters. The Alliance’s mission is to strengthen Maine communities through the arts by increasing awareness, knowledge, education, appreciation, participation and support for art and other cultural activities.
