The second annual Pulaski Street Art Crawl will be held Oct. 6 from 5-9 p.m. During the event, which is open free to the public, participating artists will open their studios and participating business owners will showcase artwork from Athens-area artists, including faculty, students and alumni from UGA. The Athens Institute for Contemporary Art or ATHICA also will take part in the art crawl.
Live music will be provided by Hawkproof Rooster and other local musicians, and the Circle Ensemble Theatre Company will perform. Refreshments along the crawl are free unless otherwise specified. Maps of the art crawl route will be available at ARTini’s Art Lounge (Suite 3, 206 W. Broad St.) and Pints and Paints in Suite 600 of the Leathers Building (675 Pulaski Street).
Hosted by the Georgia Sculptors’ Society, a nonprofit group of UGA artists, students and alumni from the sculpture department, the art crawl will start at Pints and Paints. It will end at ARTini’s with the student-run Georgia Sculptors’ Society Juried Exhibition, judged by Todd Rivers from the Georgia Museum of Art.
UGA art professors Thom Houser and Scott Belvill will show their work at the Broad Street Art Studios along with UGA painting students taking part in the Senior Exit. Some of the events’ food will be served on platters made by art professor Ted Saupe and ceramic students.
The Pulaski Street Art Crawl was founded and is organized by Valerie Mathews, a UGA alumna who works as a shop technician in the university’s sculpture department.
