Zachary art walk Sunday
The newly formed Zachary Artist Guild (ZAG), along with the joint efforts of the Chamber of Commerce, will hold an Evening Art Walk in downtown Zachary between the Chamber office and Fire Station on July 9. Twenty to twenty-five artists from the Zachary area will have their art works on display and available for purchase from 6 pm to 9 pm in a first-of-a-kind Evening Art Walk. Tickets are $10 each and include hors d’oeuvres by Palmetto Grill, sampling of Abita’s Andy award-winning beer from Evangeline Brewery Company, wine from Feliciana Cellars and door prizes and live music by L. C. Carney Blues Band and Sacred Strings Bluegrass.
Twenty-percent of proceeds from art work sales purchased from featured artists during the event will benefit ZAG and the Regional Arts Council of Zachary. Additionally, patrons purchasing art work will have their name placed in a VIP raffle for a Community Canvas painting on which, Mayor Amrhein will paint the first brush strokes with other contributors throughout the event. ZAG members are working hard to make it a successful art show that benefits future endeavors by the Artist Guild and the Regional Arts Council of Zachary.
The Zachary Artists Guild (ZAG) is an all-volunteer organization involved in the Zachary art scene. ZAG will advance and promote the appreciation, enjoyment and distribution of the visual arts; for the mutual improvement, cultural benefit, and social enlightenment of members and of the public; to sponsor exhibitions of original art by any artists; to present art programs of high quality; to afford a means through which artists may continue their work and study; to encourage artists of all ages; and to foster appreciation and participation in the arts by the general public.
