Upcoming Events

July 6 Art Walk
The Mount Vernon Downtown Association (MVDA) is excited to present the First Thursday Art Walk on July 6, 2017, 5-8 pm. Poster artist Deirdre Czoberek will be exhibiting at the Front Gallery, 420 Myrtle. Deirdre’s work is purely spontaneous, relying on the inter-relationships of color and form to create the ambience in her paintings. From one traveling line on the paper, she creates her own universe of luminous colors and organic shapes.

Local and regionally renowned artists will be exhibiting at 16 downtown locations during the First Thursday Art Walk. Artists include Stephanie Homfeldt, Susan May, Jane Alynn, Logan Fox, Ben Mann, Stephanie Banaszak, Christian Carlson,
Sherri Greenleaf, Gene Jaress, Karen Neugebauer, Judy Sjerven Nicholai, Sarah Dalton and Amy Martin.

The MVDA hosts Art Walks on the First Thursday of each month, from April through September. Art Walk maps may be downloaded at For more information or to inquire about participating in future Art Walks, please email or call (360) 336-3801.
