“Main streets have art walks and I think Smithville lends itself to it,” said Mike Spagnola, who organizizes the event with his wife, Lucy.
Mike Spagnola said his store sells art and music from local artists. When Mike’s store, Underground, sells local music all of the profits go to the musicians. The store takes a small percentage of the profits from art sales.
“There are seasoned artists coming and there are new artists,” Spagnola said. “Artists who are 16 and 17 years old will be here. A lot of them are excited to meet like minds.”
There will be a wide array of art and artists on display.
“Everything is always cutting edge, but all genres will be represented, from traditional to low brow,” Spagnola said.
The art will be for sale, as well. Entry is free for the artists, and the walk is nearly filled to capacity. Those wishing to participate can still email firstname.lastname@example.org.
