Scene And Heard: Pittston Art Walk This Weekend

August 9, 2018

I always say I would love to live in Pittston.

The city has been flourishing and growing since I moved here four years ago, and I always love taking some time to cruise down the main strip.

Friday marks the fourth Pittson City Second Friday Art Walk, which takes place from 5 to 9 p.m. on Main Street.

Various artists line the streets and stores with their paintings, photography, sculpture and more as people can peruse the wares and enjoy the scenic walk, and maybe stop into one of the downtown restaurants for dinner afterwards.

One of the notable stops is the Art Walk Education Tent, where people can view art created by Pittston Area Elementary School students. Also for children, Merle Norman Cosmetics will be doing $5 chocolate chip cooking nails for kids 10 and younger.

The Pittston Arts Council is sponsoring an art exhibit entitled, “Created and Collected” at the art walk, and at next weekend’s Tomato Festival. The “created” exhibit will be displayed at Callahan’s Cafe and Coffee House, which is comprised of works created by members of the Arts Council. The “collected” portion can be viewed at Tuxedo by Sarno, and features favorite art pieces owned by Arts Council members.

Live music can be heard on Friday from Dave Jumper Band, Tori Viccica and the Strolling Barbara Shop Quartet.
