In this July series of blog posts Cravings Gourmet Popcorn acknowledges events, people and businesses that positively contribute to the unique identity and experience of Old Town.
For the Old Town area, the community-wide First Sunday Gallery Walk is a real boost for the eight art galleries located in Old Town. Great Lakes Art, MICA, Linda Beeman Studio, Katalyst, By the Riverside, Creole Gallery, Absolute Gallery, and Gallery 1212 all sweep off the welcome mat and welcome art lovers and browsers alike into their creative spaces.
Most of the galleries provide great art gallery space for local artists and to pay the bills and enhance the visitor experience, offer other art-related services like the classes presented by (name) at Gallery 1212 or the framing service available from Absolute Gallery. Additionally, some of the other Old Town businesses, like Full Circle Financial, contribute to the arts scene by throwing their doors open on First Sunday because they are including contemporary art in their workspaces in conjunction with the local galleries.
In Old Town, the First Sunday of every month provides an open invitation to new visitors to come experience Old Town. There is always music to enjoy and food to savor in-season with the Old Farmer’s Market held on the same day. Research says that most new visitors will come for the first time during the First Sunday Gallery Walk. This first experience of Old Town sets a positively artistic tone for the area.
Because of the popularity of the First Sunday Gallery Walk other businesses in Old Town that are not normally open for business on Sunday make it a point to be open for First Sunday, including Cravings Gourmet Popcorn.
