Lewiston, Maine, June 24, 2020 – If we can’t safely gather in downtown Lewiston-Auburn for an art walk right now, we’ll bring Art Walk L-A to you! The next “virtual” Art Walk L-A happens Friday, June 26, 2020 on www.laarts.org/artwalk/, YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram and includes visual arts, microfiction, and dance, featuring:
- “The Empress,” a speed painting by artist Mary Bottom
- Auburn River Walk story boards, featuring work by Edward Little student artist Sophia Therrien
- Waltz competition danced by Bates College ballroom dance team members
- Local Writers Read presents microfiction by Claire Guyton and Sarah Twombly

LA Arts and the Art Walk LA Committee are also pleased to present the 2020 Art Walk LA Artists web page. Artists and artisans included on this page each have works for sale; please support them with your purchases! Visual artists and artisans can register free at https://www.laarts.org/artwalk/ and we’ll share your work on this web page throughout the season. 100% of art sale proceeds go to artists and makers.
Virtual Art Walk LA and all LA Arts programs would not be possible without the generous support of community partners including 2020 Community Arts Champion sponsors Acadia Insurance, Austin Associates, P.A., Bates College, Baxter Brewing Co., Berman & Simmons, the City of Lewiston, the Sun Journal as well as the Maine Arts Commission, Maine Community Foundation, the Onion Foundation, and the Ladd Foundation.
