Everyone is invited to enjoy an evening of autumn air and visual delights during Belfast Arts Final Fridays Art Walk Sept. 26 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. More than 20 downtown galleries participate in the Final Fridays Art Walks; look for the blue flags.

Art walkers will enjoy the paintings, photography, sculpture, ceramics, etchings, assemblage and fine craft of local Maine artists, as well as local performers, who will share a variety of talents including music and dance. Teaching artist Bridget Matros will offer an all-ages hands-on activity for the artist in everyone, and parents can get tips on family-friendly galleries to visit and how to enjoy the Art Walk with kids. Bus groups are welcomed to the free evening.

Highlights include the addition of works by local artist Gabriella D'Italia at Fresh Cup Gallery, 33C Main St. D'Italia’s professional practice began with an emphasis on fiber, especially quilting techniques that have earned her membership in Maine’s longstanding craft guilds such as the Maine Crafts Guild and the Maine Crafts Association. Although she still uses labor-intensive, repetitive processes in most work, it now includes video, writing and installation. Her work has been exhibited internationally, as well as in Maine. Fresh Cup also is exhibiting new works from local potters Nate Willever, Paige Pride, Adam Bogosian and Cory Upton-Cosulich.

Quench: Provisions for the Savvy on Beaver Street will open “Artfully Orchestrated: Illustrations on Vintage Sheet Music” by Jessica Harris during the September art walk. Harris' ink and watercolor illustrations of animals, plants and garden fairies on vintage sheet music work in unison to create a collective dynamic between art and music.

The last Final Fridays Art Walk for 2014 will be Oct. 31, Halloween. For more information, visit belfastcreativecoalition.org or call 323-8692.
