PHILIPPI — Members of Philippi Main Street’s Art Stroll Committee hosted the first planning meeting for this year’s annual Art Stroll which will be April 26 from 5-8 p.m. in business sites throughout downtown Philippi.

The committee is calling for artists and businesses who want to be part of this year’s Art Stroll. Local and regional visual artists, dancers, mimes and musicians are asked to contact any of the committee members or Main Street Director Tammy Stemple at 304-457-3700, ext. 226 or via email at hotpepperbabe@hotmail.com. Downtown businesses and organizations with Main Street sites are also asked to notify Main Street of their interest in hosting artists.

This year’s Art Stroll will be Philippi Main Street’s 10th annual celebration of local and regional art. For the past few years, the Stroll has featured a special art form.

This year, the Stroll will feature “live art,” visual artists painting, dancers dancing, musicians playing music, and back by popular request the return of the “Plein Air” contest. Painters who want to participate in the “Plein Air” contest will be able to set up their easels anywhere on Main Street from sun rise to sun set on April 26 and paint their perspectives of Main Street. More information on this contest will be made public in the next month.

Anyone wanting to be part of this year’s Art Stroll should contact Stemple.
