Downtown Valdosta is hosting its monthly “Art After Dark” event Friday, September 21 in hopes to bring awareness to local artists.
The event is held every third Friday of the month from 6-9 p.m. Everyone is welcome to experience the transformation of downtown Valdosta into a collection of amazing indoor and outdoor galleries.
Local artists will be selling their work as well as doing demonstrations. Poetry, Ceramics, Oil based painting, photography and drawing are all mediums that will be presented Friday evening.
“Art After Dark is similar to downtown’s monthly First Friday event with one key difference—it puts greater emphasis on the area’s visual arts and artists,” Ellen Hill, program coordinator for downtown Valdosta, said. “Art After Dark focuses on our region’s wealth of talent in the visual arts in addition to showcasing our great downtown businesses.”
Many shops as well as restaurants will be open during the event and those who attend are encouraged to experience the rest of downtown.
