COVINGTON, Ga. - Did you enjoy the Downtown Covington Art Walk back in July 2018? If you did, then you will be excited to hear that the Art Walk is coming back in 2019! Main Street Covington will host a Spring Art Walk and a Fall Art Walk. The Spring Art Walk will take place on Saturday, April 27 from 5 to 9 p.m. The Fall Art Walk will take place later in the year in October.
Visitors can expect to see the work of more than 30 artists along the Art Walk. Visitors and enthusiasts will find a variety of types of art styles and mediums. The downtown sidewalks are sure to be filled with unexpected talent and entertainment.
Artist registration is now open for the Downtown Covington Spring Art Walk! If you are an artist, this event is a great opportunity to show off your work! All local artists are encouraged to participate.
The registration fee is very small. If you were part of the Art Walk in 2018 and your application was accepted, you are considered a “returning artist,” and there is NO registration fee. That's right. It's free even if you registered and couldn't make it to the rescheduled Art Walk back in July. However, the registration is only free until March 1. After March 1, the registration goes up to $20 per space for returning artists. If you register after April 1, the registration fee goes up to $35 per space for returning artists.
For new artists, the registration fee is $20 per space between now and April 1. If a new artist signs up after April 1, the registration fee goes up to $35 per space.
Each artist is allowed a maximum of two spaces. Each artist will have a pre-assigned space on the sidewalk in Downtown Covington. The spaces will each be eight feet wide and three feet deep. There is no height restriction. Some spaces will have limited access to electricity.
Artists that are affiliated within the following genres are encouraged to participate:
• Misc. visual media
• Decorative Arts (furniture, wall paper, interior & exterior spaces)
• Crafts (homemade, homegrown)
• Fiber Arts
• Misc. Performing Arts
• Floral Arts
