On Friday, May 12, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Historic Downtown Bristol will be filled with art lovers as several galleries and venues join together to host Art D’Vine. This art walk offers patrons the chance to gain after hours access to merchants, sample domestic and international wines, and enjoy a range of works from artists across the region.
The museum will be hosting a Sullins Academy student art show where artworks inspired by a “Synesthesia Syncopation” event held earlier in the week will be displayed. Local artisan Treva Watson will also be at the museum, highlighting her homemade candles, soaps, bath and body products, perfect gifts for Mother’s Day! Art D’Vine participants will also get the chance to see the museum’s special exhibit—Hometown Stars: Southwest Virginia’s Recording Legacy, 1923—1943—for free.
Those participants who complete their Art D’Vine passport by visiting each stop will be entered into a raffle to win a gift certificate for Mercantile on State. This event is free and open to the public, though there is a suggested one-time donation of $5 (which can be given at any of the participating venues); proceeds support the work of the Arts & Entertainment District of Historic Downtown Bristol, TN/VA.
