Summer's Final Merchants & Artists Walk Happening on Friday Evening
Posted on: 08/08/2013

Friday evening brings the final Merchants and Artists Walk of the summer season in downtown Marietta and Harmar village.
Marietta Main Street Director Jean Farmer tells WMOA News that some businesses are participating for the first time on Friday evening.

“We have a new shop opening over at 102 Putnam Avenue. It’s called the Brick Street Cottage. That will be their first day of business on Friday. They’re going to be part of the artists walk, as well as Resolve Studios, who are just down the street a ways from there.  And then, Found Antiques, all in the Harmar Village area.”
Farmer says some new artists are appearing, too. 

“Gary Fisher is an artist who actually has a loft on Front Street.  He will be displaying at Tony Baldwin’s Jewelry By Design, right on Front Street.  That’s pretty cool.  I don’t think he’s been in there before. Teri Ann’s is going to feature a jewelry artist Alyse Zeide.  As I understand it, some of her jewelry has been worn by stars. That’s kind of exciting.  I think she’s out of Chicago. We have a West Virginia artist coming to Pink Chuck’s Studio.  There are some new, interesting things that will be here this time.”
Friday night’s event coincides with the Rivers, Trails and Ales Festival (see story posted yesterday) making for a hopping place.
“The festival compliments it very well. Once you’re done bike riding or kayaking on the river, then you can come up and enjoy our Merchants and Artists Walk.”
There will be one more "Walk" this year, on November 8, to preview the holiday shopping season in Marietta.
