We need you to reach out and show yourself to the world. Our website can only go so far without your help.
We will be there to support you and engage! This will boost your live event. We expect other members to engage at that time as well.


Hosted at the Leslie Grove Gallery, join us for an Instagram live opening where you can connect with artists online to chat about what they are working on and presenting in the show.

Mark your calendar and invite your friends! Friday, September 25, 2020 – 8 PM


Check out studios and artist home booths through out the city. Weather permitting.

We encourage you to host your own in person opening – consider putting your tent in your driveway and encourage your network to view your work practicing safe social distancing.

We are building a schedule of Facebook and Instagram live events leading up to and throughout the online show.
Where possible we will repost YOUR live feeds. Just make certain you tag your video with @artwalksquare and tag in the text with “follow @artwalksquare” (which you can save on your feed). 

Please sign up and we will post the listing of your live event on the ArtWalk in the Square site on our Calendar of Events! Note, we try to update our posting 2x a week – Mondays and Thursdays at 10AM.


Be engaged to get engagement and put you knowledge to use! Now is the time to put into execution what you learned in the Artists’ Network digital marketing sessions. We will where possible continue regraming of posts tagging @artwalksquare and tag in the text with “follow @artwalksquare. Watch for the Artists’ Networks posts and other artists’ posts, then share and comment on their posts.

Please note, we are managing  healthy Instagram and Facebook accounts, to ensure the continued promotion of our events. This may limit the amount of reposting allowed per day. Tag often to get reposted.
