The Boro Art Crawl is decking the town with lots of art and fine crafts for their event on December 9th from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. The Crawl takes place in and around Historic Murfreesboro’s Downtown Square. Make sure to venture away from the central square, as there are many wonderful businesses with great art and gifts just a few streets away.
While Lytle Street is closed to traffic, both Two Tone Gallery and Cultivate Coworking will be open for the December crawl. Two-Tone Gallery owner, Todd Wilson, has a goal for the gallery to “[s]how as much art to as many people as possible.” For the December Boro Art Crawl he will be featuring the work of Norbert Thiemann, Beth Moore, Lesley Thomas, Kevin Sweeney, and Kevin Wurm Jr. Boro Art Crawl t-shirts, bumper stickers, and pins are available at Cultivate Co-Working, which is also the place to go to get information about he Crawl. Cultivate is right next door to Two Tone Gallery.
On Maney Street, dreamingincolor will be offering the oils and painted furniture of Deneen Gildwell, the architectural watercolors of 84-year old Joseph Roccamo, and the pastoral pastels on sandpaper of Justyna Kostkowska. The store will also be featuring the youth art of their inaugural student art contest winners. Beth Boudreaux will be live painting on site during the Crawl. Every nook and cranny of the old home turned store offers creative delights for the holidays, beginning on the front porch.
The Murfreesboro Art League at Cannonsburgh Village will be celebrating their 30th birthday with an open house featuring the art of their members who range in age from 18 to over 80. Their founder, Clarice Nelson, wanted to make sure that there was a non-judgemental, supportive place for creative people to come together to hone their skills.
Art League Member Suzanne LeBeau and Studio 903 Artist Dawna Magliacano just had art featured in the coffee table book Incite 4: Relax Restore Renew from North Light Books. The book features the best mixed-media artists of 2016 from all over the world.
Chef Manny Santana, owner of The Block Eatery, is a strong supporter of the Boro Art Crawl, and artists in general. Every Crawl he features an assortment of local artist and great culinary creativity, like his Waffle Battered Chicken served with Vanilla Bourbon Sauce. It is a great place to start or end the evening.
