About 20 artists from the Zachary area will have their art work on display and available for purchase in a unique evening art walk.
Tickets are $10 each and include hors d’oeuvres by Palmetto Grill; wine from Feliciana Cellars and Abita’s “Andy Award” winning beer, Louisiana Imperial Oyster Stout and Pecan Bitter, soft drinks and door prizes.
There will also be live music by L. C. Carney Blues Band and Sacred Strings Bluegrass playing by the ZFD.
Twenty percent of the proceeds from art work sales purchased from featured artists during the event will benefit ZAG and the Regional Arts Council of Zachary. Additionally, patrons purchasing art work will have their name placed in a VIP raffle for a community canvas painting on which, Mayor Amrhein will paint the first brush strokes with other contributors throughout the event.
ZAG members are working hard to make it a successful art show that benefits future endeavors by the Artist Guild and the Regional Arts Council of Zachary.
