Downtown Lawrence Creatives to Host a Winter Art Walk

The 2021 Lawrence Winter Art Walk is a free, self-guided tour that allows you to explore art hubs, galleries, and businesses throughout Lawrence’s Historic Downtown District.

From Lawrence Arts Collective

Lawrence-area artists and creatives come together to host a Lawrence Winter Art Walk on Saturday, December 11th from 10 AM-4 PM at various downtown locations. The Winter Art Walk will feature open studios, gallery viewings, live demonstrations, performances, and other unique offerings throughout the day for visitors to explore Lawrence’s creative hubs.

“The winter walk is such a great opportunity not only for the participating artists, but for the Lawrence community,” said 599 Studio artist and Essex Art Center instructor, Kathy Reming. “The Arts have the power to bring people and communities together. Making the Arts a part of our lives can help us to better appreciate ourselves as a community and enrich us culturally.”

Participating organizations include 599 Studios, Ateneo Dominicano, SaludArte (hosted at Colectiva Wellness & Healing), El Taller Cafe & Bookstore, Elevated Thought, Essex Art Center, Lawrence Public Library, and One Broadway Collaborative.

Julie Todd, owner of JustJulie and co-founder of SaludArte said, “SaludArte began in 2015 as a way for friends and family to financially support grassroots creatives and healers in a welcoming and hospitable space, keeping money within the local economy.” Colectiva Wellness & Healing, owned by Elizabeth Delgado, will be the new location host for SaludArte at 60 Island Street in Lawrence. Already a home for seven resident artists and healers to share their unique art and healing services, Delgado’s wellness business is the perfect venue to collectively showcase SaludArte’s 24 diverse Merrimack Valley vendors with their handmade, homemade art and

in-person healing services. Delgado said, “We have such power when we come together to share our artistic and healing gifts in community. Over time these are the people who will deepen, strengthen and shape the creative community in this local area.”

The coordinated marketing of the 2021 Lawrence Winter Art Walk is an effort made by the Lawrence Arts Collective, a pilot artist-in-residency program supported by the Lawrence Public Library in partnership with 599 Studios, Ateneo Dominicano, El Taller Cafe & Bookstore, Elevated Thought, Essex Art Center, Izizwe Dance Studio, and Merrimack River Watershed Council. The program matched each participating organization with an artist-in-residence, selected through a competitive application process in the summer of 2021, who is focused on developing collaborative and community-focused arts programming which will be debuted throughout the spring and summer of 2022.

The Lawrence Arts Collective programming is supported by funding from the Barr Foundation through the MassDevelopment TDI Creative Catalyst Grant program which is aimed at supporting public-facing projects to enhance local arts and cultural infrastructure and contribute to economic revitalization.

Colectiva Wellness & Healing, propiedad de Elizabeth Delgado, será el nuevo anfitrión de SaludArte en 60 Island Street en Lawrence. El negocio de bienestar de Delgado, que ya es el hogar de siete artistas residentes y curanderos para compartir su arte único y servicios de curación, es el lugar perfecto para exhibir colectivamente a los 24 diversos proveedores de Merrimack Valley de SaludArte con su arte hecho a mano y sus servicios de curación en persona. Delgado dijo: “Tenemos tanto poder cuando nos unimos para compartir nuestros dones artísticos y curativos en comunidad. Con el tiempo, estas son las personas que profundizarán, fortalecerán y darán forma a la comunidad creativa en esta área local ”.
