East Aurora’s Spring Art Walk, a collaborative event promoting the artistic offerings and businesses of this affluent and walkable village, will kick off with a flurry of activity Friday afternoon.
The walk will feature 14 galleries and businesses, ranging from favorite art spots like redFISH Art Studios and Gallery (21 Elm St.) and Meibohm Fine Arts (478 East Main St.) to cafés and other businesses. A free trolley running along East Aurora’s idyllic Main Street will transport visitors among the venues, all of which are located along a mile-long stretch.
At redFISH, owner Alix Martin and fellow artist Vanessa Frost will be painting while projections play on the building’s exterior and interior during the art space’s ’20s-themed showcase. Meibohm will feature an exhibition of recent work by painter Monica Angle, while Main Street Picture and Frame (5 Pine St.) shows work by Cheryl Wnuk-Klinck, the East Aurora Co-Op (618 Main St.) has work by Tanya Zabinski, and the Roycroft Power House (39 South Grove St.) features artist Jim Cordes.
