Hi Joe – Here are the general ArtWalk points:

ArtWalk has a wide range of art in traditional and contemporary styles, different media (oil, acrylic, watercolors, painting, photography, sculptures, jewlery, handbags) and something for every price range & taste. Great for locals and visitors.
ArtWalk will be held on 4 Saturdays from 11-6 p.m. this year: April 23, June 18, Aug. 20, Nov. 5 (change from previous years where we did a few weekends)
It is based on a self-guided tour of more than 20 galleries and partner sites that can be done at any time in Newburyport’s Cultural District. During ArtWalk, we have special programming: special exhibits, artist talks, demos, tours, etc. in a casual reception environment. There will also be pop-up events during the year.
You can get a free brochure/map of all the venues at participating galleries, the Chamber office, the passageway between State and Inn Street and at ArtWalk partners’ locations.
visit http://www.newburyportartwalk.com and http://www.facebook.com/NewburyportArtWalk to stay up to date on all the activities
The April 23 ArtWalk has some unique offerings: yarnbomb at the NAA with public participation; pre-party on Friday night at Paula Estey’s Gallery; artists on hand to discuss their work; Greenhead Project to engage local students.
John Brown will discuss his new gallery space.
AJ Smith will discuss the details of the Greenhead Project.
Kiki Larouge will discuss her shared gallery at 36 Liberty St. & special guest handbag designer
Hope this helps. The other interviewees may add some points.
