More than 40 artists participate in the annual Art Walk held at the Smithville Village.
More than 30 tables are set up on the Village Greene side of the Smithville Village.
“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 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 email@example.com.
“They’re here to rub elbows with other artists. It’s all about exhibiting,” Spagnola said. “They want to have their name and their work recognized.”
