LEWISTON-AUBURN — L/A Arts’ annual Art Walk gets underway Friday, May 19, from 5-8 p.m. at more than venues in the Twin Cities. In its seventh year in Lewiston and second year in Auburn, Art Walk LA brings to free, public spaces exhibiting artists in all media, live art demonstrations and as the weather warms, performances of various kinds.

Now taking place on the third Friday of each month, Art Walk LA has also expanded its run to December to include the holiday season. “We are delighted to expand the 2017 art walk season through December. The switch to the third Friday allows L/A Arts to provide more opportunities to artists in the region and access to arts for our growing audience. This season will also feature a new logo and enhanced marketing,” L/A Arts Program and Events Manager Jess Lauren Lipton said. 

Greg Shattenberg’s show “The Print Master’s World: Too Intimate for Words” kicks off L/A Arts’ 2017 Art Walk season at the L/A Arts Gallery, 221 Lisbon St., with an opening reception, 5-8 p.m. The show features new pieces from the Auburn-West Paris printmaker as well as some rarely seen works from his own collection.

“Greg’s work is astonishing – richly textured, the layers of words and images go far beyond what we think of as prints. We’re thrilled to have this show offering such an extensive range of his work” L/A Arts Director Louise Rosen said. “And we are honored that he has given us a limited edition print titled ‘Cuspid Moon’ — all sales to benefit L/A Arts.”  

There will be exhibitions throughout downtown Lewiston and Auburn, including a multi-artist space at One Great Falls Plaza opposite Auburn City Hall.
