#Bermuda Art Walk in The East – #Summer #Autumn #2013

The Summer Art Walk took place on Saturday, June 15, 2013 in The Town of St. George’s, Bermuda

The day got off to a rocky start due to a fluke storm that took up a good chunk of the morning. As fate would have it the skies cleared just in time for the Art Walk!

Artists such as Heidi Cowen, Christopher Grimes, Jill Amos Raine, Carole Hovercroft, and Trisha Walters had tables lined up along Water Street.

Peter Frith from The National Trust opened the Tucker House Museum especially for the Art Walk and as luck would have it Lawrence Trimingham decided to use the Tucker House Museum to display his Rembrandt/Baroque style portraits.

Chewstick provided fabulous entertainment on the Square, while buskers played and sang throughout the Olde Towne of St. George’s.

Dancers from the Bermuda African Dance Company made the mood festive by parading down Water Street.

Michael Walsh did his performance piece of selling love for a penny , Donna Smith, Diane Amos, Sharon Wilson and Monica Jones were situated further down Water Street opposite Tavern on by the Sea.

1 Undread entertained passer bys with their dark electro pop music outside of CV Café and Nea Simons owner of the Cave staged a fashion show that featured clothing from local clothing stores outside of the World Heritage Centre.

Triton Tattoo/The Endemic Arts Collective had their doors open to the public and surprised everyone with the band Bashee playing live with amazing front woman Michele Morfitt.

The Bermuda National Gallery partnered up with the Summer Art Walk and had their inaugural opening of their satellite gallery BNG East located in the Bridge House.

James Cooper was the lucky artist to have his uber modern photo surrealism art work as the first exhibit at the gallery. Both BNG East and James Cooper put on one hell of a show.

It was a great event that left you feeling inspired and longing for the next Art Walk which will take place on Sunday, November 3 at 4pm.

This event will have Opera, female impersonators, dancers from In Motion, a fashion show featuring fashions from the Cave and the new online Vintage Store called Dolly Pop, Chewstick, a play by Famous for 15 Minutes winner Catherine Hay, Bermuda Carnival Revelers and of course many local arts and crafts persons who are too many to mention.

Surely an event you don’t want to miss!
