The Visual Arts Committee meets Tuesday, Nov. 5 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at Wine and Design, 948 Fourth Avenue. Chris Hayes has been elected Chairman and Else Littlepage, secretary.

In a statement following the October Art Walk (the last of 2013), Ms. Littlepage thanked “loyal artists who have participated in several art walks this year, the accommodating venues/business owners, media, and our local art supporting community.”

Looking forward to 2014, the downtown “girl” who supports Mayor Williams arts and growth programs stated,  “Our city may be small, but our hearts and ideas are not. We always emphasize that it's about quality, not quantity, so with that in mind let's make 2014 our best year yet for the Artwalk!”


Danielle Justice,  who has access to a 7,500 square foot industrial warehouse space in Guyandotte  , will speak Thursday, Nov. 7 at the Frederick during Chat n Chew. She would like to see the space  re-purposed towards the education and not-for-profit sector. Ideas such as a Children's Science Museum have been discussed.

On Nov. 14, Breanna L. Shell will discuss the city's 2025 comprehensive plan.
