WATER VALLEY – It’s time for the Water Valley Arts Council’s famous – and award winning – Art Crawl. If you have wondered what the big deal is about Water Valley, now is the perfect time to find out.
The 11th Annual Art Crawl is happening Saturday, Nov. 2, from 5:30 to 9 p.m. with an after party at Hometown Pizza with The Eric Deaton Trio.
There are a dozen stops on the tour this year; and all of them are comfortably within walking distance of each other. Seven of the stops are right on Main Street and start at the United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall located at 603 North Main. Headed south from there, the next stop is across from the post office at Mari Foster Studio in the old Herald building. Other Main Street stops include Hometown Pizza, Violet Valley Bookstore, the Pocket Park, the Main Street Association Building and 20 South Main Street.
Stops off Main Street include the historic Creekmore House at 114 Panola Street, a first for the Crawl. Farther up Panola Street is the Gallery in the Green Room and the Brown/David Home. The last stop is the Abbott/Kirkpatrick Home at 405 Kimmons Street. For a map of all the locations, see the Art Crawl ad on page B2.
If art isn’t your thing, consider this an opportunity to visit some of the beautiful historic homes in the Valley while indulging in delicious finger food, and sipping a glass of wine or lemonade as music fills the air from the various crawl locations. It’s a grand event and lovely evening to welcome fall to The Valley while allowing the arts to enrich our lives.
