ArtsWalk’20, a Re-imagined Artsfest at Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center

SOLOMONS, Md. - Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center’s annual Artsfest Fine Arts Festival has been re-imagined and re-configured into ArtsWalk ’20, a socially-distanced celebration of art and music. Set amidst the spectacular backdrop of Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center in Solomons, Maryland, the event will take place September 19 & 20, from 10am to 5pm both days.

ArtsWalk will be a unique socially-distanced arts experience with more than 75 artist booths spread out over the 30-acre park, along with 25 additional artists participating virtually. Five Musical Moment locations, featuring more than 35 different performers, will bring music to every corner of the park and allow guests and performers to keep their distance.  Low-touch and no-touch activities are planned for kids to have creative fun!  Food and drink will be available, including wine and craft beers. 

Advance timed-entry tickets are required to control crowd size and allow for social distancing.  Masks are required for all guests over the age of five. There will be plenty of room to spread out and enjoy an art-filled socially distanced day! As seating will be limited, bring chairs and blankets. Admission is $10 per person, free for members, and free for kids 11 and under. For complete event information, artist list, performance schedule, and ticket info, including detailed safety guidelines, visit www.annmariegarden.org.

ArtsWalk celebrates the visual and performing arts by bringing together the country’s most accomplished artists for a fabulous weekend of the arts!  Explore the artist booths¬ where you can shop, watch demos, and talk with artists working in a variety of media, including jewelry, ceramics, painting, photography, fiber, printmaking, sculpture, and more!  Artist booths can be found spaciously placed around the Tent Circle and down the shady Wooded Path. Guests will find everything from spectacular works of art for the home to thoughtful gifts for friends. It’s a shopper’s paradise.

ArtsWalk is proud to present more than 35 performers in five socially-distanced performance areas. The eclectic line-up of musicians will be presenting the best in gypsy jazz, indie, folk, rock, soul, fusion, Americana, accordion, old-time, and bluegrass to name but a few.  Thanks to the generous support of the Maryland State Arts Council, sponsors Jane & Walter Grove, and Builtrite Home Developers Inc., ArtsWalk will include performances by Swing Gadjo, gypsy jazz, the rhythms of The Lovejoy Group, the soulful stylings of Latrice Carr, and Americana folk rock by Red Sammy.
