Schuylkill, Berks and Carbon Counties are rich in folk art traditions and are now being recognized by leaders in the community and will be celebrated through various workshops, demonstrations and community wide activities that are planned to begin Spring, 2016. The Walk In Art Center will be the venue for the annual kick off festival.
"Our area is rich in history, culture and traditions that should be recognized and passed on to future generations," said Lisa Robinson, Executive Director of The Walk In Art Center. We are excited to join such a fabulous group of professionals from M&T Bank, Wilmington Trust Bank, Evans Delivery, Vision and Penn State Schuylkill who are working together to make this project a success."
The Walk In Art Center joins other area art centers, artists and art enthusiasts in Schuylkill County's Annual Art Tour with our Holiday Market. The Art Tour features special events and open houses throughout the county. Our Holiday Market includes art vendors showing, sharing and selling their art, our First Saturday Open House, activities for the kids, the annual studio artists art exhibition, refreshments and even a visit from Santa Claus. Admission is free and everyone is welcome.
