SYCAMORE – Registration for the fifth annual Artist Walk is under way.
Art Attack, the Sycamore-based nonprofit that promotes community art, is encouraging interested residents to call 815-899-9440 to request a registration form and submit two or three pieces of their work for display.
During the event, people visit artists’ studios, homes or other locations in an “Art Fair” that stretches from Sycamore to DeKalb. The artists demonstrate and sell their pieces, answer questions and introduce themselves and their artwork to the public.
Susan Edwards, executive director of Art Attack, said it is a win-win situation because artists sell works and the public gets to see new work and studios and meet artists they otherwise might not.
“Last year we had over 60 artists,” Edwards said. “We’re hoping for more this year.”
The event is scheduled for Oct. 6 and will include an auction. Edwards said that at $3,500, it was one of the biggest fundraisers for the organization last year.
