Watertown Art Crawl, A New Breed of Art Exhibition, set May 30

Local artists and Watertown business owners are joining forces to present Watertown’s inaugural Art Crawl on Saturday, May 30 from 6 to 10 p.m.

Event organizers are promising a fun, eclectic event while raising funds for New Leash on Life, a local not-for-profit animal welfare organization.

Event attendees will enjoy live music, food and drinks while strolling the historic Public Square of Watertown. The Art Crawl will offer a vast assortment of art ranging from paintings, photography, jewelry, stained glass, woodwork, quilts and steelwork, just to name a few. Art demonstrations will also be performed throughout the event and the evening will be capped off with a special live auction at 9 p.m. with Michael Walker of Cumberland Real Estate and Auction presenting several unique pieces to the highest bidders. 

Participating galleries and shops displaying art will include: Gallery of the Mad House Wife, LuLu’s Coffee House, Lew’s Creation Station, Kake Haus, Jay Chesley Real Estate and Thornton Metal Studio.

Event tickets are $15 in advance and $20 day of the Art Crawl and may be purchased online at www.newleashonline.org/artcrawl or by phone (615) 390-0505. A list of participating artists and directions to the event may also be found at this website.

Proceeds from the Watertown Art Crawl go to The Big Pet Project, New Leash on Life’s effort to build a desperately needed new pet adoption and resource center. New Leash on Life is a well respected not-for-profit animal welfare organization that provides services to thousands of animals each year, organizers said.
