Two annual spring traditions - the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce's spring ART CONCORD and the annual exhibit of the Friends Program's art auction items - are joining forces for a large-scale, one-night collaborative art event highlighting the talent and artistry of Concord-area artists on April 28 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at participating galleries.
All of the galleries welcome you for current Art Concord exhibits, and many of the following venues will showcase this year's custom-designed Adirondack chairs that will be auctioned at the Friends' 12th annual charity auction on May 20. Auction pieces will be on display until the day of the auction. Come see artwork, the Friends' chairs and auction art pieces at various Main Street locations.
Start your tour with a beer tasting at the Robert M. Larsen Gallery located at the Sulloway & Hollis law firm at 29 School St., and preview the Friends' artist choice auction offerings. Then, follow the map on the brochure (available at all locations and on the Friends' and Chamber's websites) to continue your gallery tour.
Join us after the art walk at the Granite Restaurant & Bar, 96 Pleasant St., for the unveiling of Bob and Sylvia Larsen's special drink in honor of the festivities! Drink unveiling will begin at 7 p.m. The drink naming is a result of the Larsen's winning that opportunity at the 2010 auction. The same opportunity will be available for purchase at this year's auction.
